:Here is the deal. I want a box that will still allow full functionality of the midgate. I am aware that a midgate replacement is ideal but I use the midgate often and would like to retain its functionality. So that pretty much leaves me with two options. A box that goes behind the seats and mounts into the midgate where the glass panel is stored...or under the seat box(es). There are a few that I have seen that replaces the center front console and adds a ten or twelve with a custom console. This would not be frowned upon but I am guessing would cost too much.
The under the seat option is what I am leaning toward but I will allow designer(s) to persuade me to a design that they feel would be beneficial. I have seem many options for under the seat including two separate boxes on each side of the cab, two separates to house two tens, on box to go the length of the bench to house two tens or one long to house to twelves.
Most speakers will have to be the space saving kind and I am leaning toward the alpine type R thin or the Fosgate P3 shallow (my door and pillar speakers are all alpine so I am leaning towards Alpine but not a deal breaker if something else is suggested).
Power wise I just want to sound good. I am not looking to break windows or win a DB drag. I want some punch to complement whatever music type I happen to have in at the time.
As far as finish...I don't care. I like some that I have seen that have the bed liner but I am leery that they use it to cover up poor craftsmanship.
All in all I am not completely sure what I want. That is why I leave it to the experts here. Tell me what you think is the best option and we can go from there.
Thank you so much in advance, this has been a huge hassle since I visited the first audio shop and the guy tried to get me to replace the midgate and told me that there wasn't any other way.
Many builders and designers also offer several options you can add if you would like. These are some of the more common options. If you want something you don't see listed feel free to ask.
