Absolutley.....when and where is the Ohio meet? I'd like to come out. I haven't been around much lately since I started the system and my new shift at work doesn;t leave me much time to visit the forums. But the system is done and I got my old shift back.
Ok, so as promised, here's some pictures of the finished product. I had a friend of mine help me draw up the plans for the box. He used to build systems and compete so I figured he'd be the one to talk to. I don't take full credit for this by any means. He taught me a lot about audio while we were putting this all together.
I'm running two Infinity Kappa Perfect 12's, 4ohm, single voice coil. 3-year warranty...couldn't pass that up.
RMS Power Range (Watts) 75-350
Peak Power Handling (Watts) 1400
As far as power goes, I'm running them off of a Rockford Fosgate Power T10001bd amp bridged.
It's only running at about a 30% of its capability. I figured the less work the amp had to do, the better. So I bought a bigger amp in case I want to upgrade the system later. Before anyone asks, I chose to mount the speakers this way based on the type of music i listen to. Rock, classic rock, country and the occassional Nelly or something. The factory speakers on all 4 doors were replaced with Pioneer 3 ways so I wouldn't lose the highs. I absolutely love it. It really sounds nice.
The box is made out of 3/8" fiberboard and then I laminated it with counter top lamination....PITA, but carpet is boring. I killed many brain cells with the laminate cement lol. It's a sealed box with no ports. There are two quad blue LED 80mm computer fans on the front that pull air in and two of the same fans on the top that extract air. The amp doesn't even get warm, but it keeps air circulating anyways. They add a really nice glow to the extended cab of the truck. The light seems to pretty much stay behind the seats too. I connected the fans to a relay and ran them off the amp so the radio didn't have to power everything. Some of you may remember me adding limo tint to the factory tint on the back window as well as the extended cab windows. This was planned, so no one could just peer in and see the box. When you put up the center console, you can;t even see the box is there.
I also bought a trailer for the Raptor....which has nothing to do with audio but I'll throw them in too.

Like I said, I'm really happy with it. The only downside was I lost all the cargo room behind the seats....that I was willing to compromise. Not everyone can.
