Red face Box request for DruDrizzle

1. Car. Year, Make, Model:2007 Chevy Avalanche non bose


2. Subs. Make, Model, Size, How many:2, not sure yet


3. Power. How much power per sub: not sure either


4. Goal. SPL or SQ:SQ


5. Sealed or ported:not sure, keep getting differing opinions from different audio shops


6. Sub/port placement:firing up or down is another contested topic among the audio shops


7. Max dimensions:


8. Desired NET vol and tuning(optional):


9. Finish:don't care.


10. Zip code for shipping:


11) Additional comments: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.

Double baffle:
Double baffle/flush mount:
Round over all port edges inside and out:
Round over all outside edges:
45's in all inside corners:
Kerfed port:
Kerfed walls:
Slanted back:
Paint inside of port:

Default more info...

What kind of info? I was giving him the options to make his best judgement and to use his experience to allow him to make the best possible box for the vehicle. I have had a ton of opinions and they are all over the map as to what to do with this vehicle.

I wanted to give the guy enough leeway to make the best box and not limit his design too much. Maybe I don't ask the right questions. Maybe I am not a installer or builder to the level that many people here are.

All I am saying is that I want to get the designers ideas incorporated and don't want my less educated and much less experienced opinions to sway his design process. I am open to different ideas.

If this is the wrong place to to do so I apologize.

no im not trying to give you hard time, first decide on a budget for EQ, then decide what size drivers you want to use and how many, and then decide what type of power they will handle and that will help a BUNCH

We have service providers but no one who is specifically addressed by these requests. {no actual vendor claiming to be a designer}


I tell you truthfully, after working on an Avalanche, if I owned one myself, I would remove the lower half of the back wall and make use of the built in blow through.

you can fit a pair of 18s in there if you wanted to. but a pair of 12s would do fine.
I'd probably go with 15s.

there is plenty of room under the back seats for amps.


if you are 'seriously just looking for something which fits' there are great pre-fab boxes for a pair of down-firing 10s. they do a good job in a low power system.
