Reg Cab, Subwoofer setup. Pics please

I have been thinking of a custom box since i have gotten my ranger. I have thought about about 4 8" subs or two tens.

I have also thought about removing the two 6x8 boxes and building one custom box with the 4 8"s and custom enclosures for 2 6x9's to get maximum sound out of such a small spot.

I have been spoiled by my other vehicle where I run all infinity two 10" Infinity Kapa Perfects, 4 6x8s and all infinity amps.


So all the photos you got would be great. I am pretty setup for amps and subs so i dont need to purchase anything.

Not a bad way to do it if its your only option but it screams take me. But if you put some kind of cover make it look like a center console and dont bump i think people would be none the wiser.

But unfortunately its a route i can not take, I have a split bench.

I'm now using guards to keep the foam off the back of the seat....and a different amp. Those are two 8" RF Punch's.

i've got the MTX thunderform box that matches the interior plastic w/ a 10" and two amps (one for sub, one for door 6x8's). i'll try and upload pics tomorrow. you gotta remember, its a STANDARD cab. unless your looking to enter stereo contests, too much power/sound may over do it.

Well yeah i know the cab is small I just wanted some ideas, Hence why the no more than two tens or 4 8s, but I am into sq as well so im sure i will chose infinity again since they have been very good to me so far. Maybe JL Audio 8s

Just bummed to see not to many reg cab owners with pride in there stereo. I checked out extended cab owners with subs and its at 5 pages.

just to let you know, 4 8"s gives you approx 1.28 times more air displacement than 2 10"s

i would not even bother with putting 6x9s behind you... or any speakers for that matter.. other than subwoofers. the "highs" from those speakers will get distorted some. just run a quality set of compoents up front off a quality amp

Is kind of a deep box. I'm 5'5" so I didn't lose any leg room but if your taller then it wouldn't work.

I don't have any pics, as my box isn't done yet (still needs carpet). I have 1 12" MTX T4500, and one 10"MTX T4500 Powered by seperate amps. I built my own box, and only lost 1.5" of total leg room. I'm 6'1" and I'm still comfortable. Here's my caution. I have too much sound for that size cab. I have to roll down my windows just so the Subs have enough air to move. Sounds pretty good with the windows down though....
