**Pic request** Custom sub enclosures...

I know having an F-150 makes it a little more difficult, but am sure you guys can show me some things.



I need to get some inspiration for a custom sub enclosure for my std cab f-150.

Need to incorporate a box with two amps and a cap plus all the necessary wiring.

Need to round up some pics of regular cab installs, whether it be GM/Chev, Dodge, Ford (ranger or f-150). Anything you can find.

Custom jobs, not just a box thrown in the back.

This is all I can find so far that's decent.

8" JBL GT0804 Sub
Kenwood 4 Channel

You'd be surprised how much stuff you can fit into a regular cab as long as you stay creative. I could have fit two smaller amps next to the sub, and a cap behind the amps (angles FTW). If I had cut out the rear speaker holders I would have been able to fit even more.

I realize mine is a simple setup, but maybe it will help you in some way. Make sure you post up your final install!

LOL
the lighting is LED. They're quad blue LED 80mm computer fans. The two on the front pull air in and blow it over the amp and the two on the top pull air out. That way, I get a decent amount of airflow through the amp rack.

I had a friend of mine help me make the box. He used to be big into the competition stuff and built something similar for his S-10 Xtreme. He was a big factor in drawing up the plans for me and then let me loose on the table saw lol. I think it came out pretty well. It sounds awesome.

The speakers are Infinity aluminum cone Kappa Perfect 12's. I'm pretty impressed with them. I was trying to decide between them and Kicker's and went with Infinity becuase of the better warranty. You can't go wrong with Kicker though either, I'm really fod of them. The rest of the project just kind of came together......the battery and all that. The truck didn't have seats for a few months lol

the enclosure in the first post would actually be really easy to build.. there's nothing to it, and it looks nice.

good ol' green or blue masking tape. you can see it on the box. i have the trim rings, and amp rack at the house, but its been a minute since i worked on it. the mold materials alone ran me in the neighborhood of $200. dang thing is 1/4" thick.

Phat 95-

Nice enclosure! That's sweet!

Quest-

Love that glass job, dude! What's going into that? I'm doing the research for my subs now. EIther a single 10" or dual 8"s. (Sealed, as I like tighter more controlled bass.) My seats are also removed and I was trying to see if there is a replacement rear panel that I could get instead of working around the jack mount, but your idea looks like it takes care of that problem. :) Thanks for any advice or info.
