these are the plans for a sub box Im going to build.
not a very good image, but it gives enough of an idea.

the actual box dims will be:
17[H] x 17[W] x 18[L] and will have a couple of stands for the bottom for a downward hitting sub and for the rear of the cab for a rear facing sub.

That would be cool I was thinking about trying something like that but every box that I have built myself sounds pretty bad. Maybe if someone knows how to do it and puts some specs we can get something like this built for our trucks.

the box Im using now I built as a downfire. it works great but it takes up too much room in the back. I wanted to start using the rear seat for my son now that he is to the point he can sit in a seat without a safety seat.
the box design is such that it would take up the entire space behind the drivers seat (removing the hide away seat) and stop a little under the rear window's height, I measured it out to allow me plenty of room while driving.
but Im having a hard time deciding where to port it, Im thinking at the rear side but I may also do an upward port so I can use the ports as a fan of sorts to keep the amp cooler.

yea, we're spoiled lol.

I never planned on putting a system in...then a friend of mine built one for his S-10 Xtreem and I got the itch. No one rode back there and whoever did just got sick from riding sideways lol. The extended cab was collecting junk....so for me, the space was being wasted.

Does your subs hit harder that way? or would a ported box be louder?

it ALL depends on 2 factors, 1) your sub it's self, do not mount a sub in an enclosure it is not designed for, it will sound terrible, 2) the music you are listening to...

ported boxes are better for long travel subs, which are good for low hard hitting bass, such as rock or metal, with a heavy bass drum, \

smaller travel subs and sealed boxes, are good for higher bass, that is a long tone, as it can reverbarate faster with the less travel, and give you long notes, like off of a bass guitar, or synthisizier or such...

any reputable sub manufacture will give you recommended specs on the box for the sub you just bought... the shape doesn't make as much of an impact as ported/sealed/bandpass/free air will, nor the actuall displacement of the box (off of the recommended)
