Default Swifts F250 flat wall with 4 DSS Ethos 18's

Figured I would start a build log. My 2012 F250 daily work truck is gonna attempt to get loud and low here.
21cu tuned at 31hz. Gonna run a Ampere Audio 7500 and repping Team DSS with 4 Ethos 18's. Second amp to follow
All 2/0 with 8 group 31's, buss bars and HO Alt.
Crescendo 1100.4 and Pro Audio gear in doors I will do. Gonna be competing Meca headrest and planing to be competive at a lower Hz than most do. We'll see. Pics to follow

Here is the truck that is fixing to get its ass whipped

Is this a new truck than the last you you built in?

Yeah the last was a 07. The doors looked great you did too.

It will be, whether I make it in or not, I will attend. I have zero points this year and have to try to make as many events as possible. My teammate will also be there with his 6 Ethos 15's, it gets down aswell

Here is the shell that is being used from my old setup, based on Kippel results these subs model well in this enclosure. Port area could be increased but should still get the job done and sound great seeing as that I'm tuned low.


Over 200ft of 2/0 will end up in the truck


Got here all emptied and back windows plastic dipped


Cutting holes for power and ground coming from tool box. Power on drivers side, grounds on pass side


Dayum what a Beast!!



Here is the old shell cut and modified to fit 4 18's.



New baffle mock up




Some bracing since its only 2 boards thick, but there will also be dowel bracing on the baffle as well.



More 2/0 cut and ready


Had to remove the door again and the wall/box is in place. The baffles had to be added after it was in so its officially not coming out of this truck without be cut up.




Baffles on and braced, its strong and shouldnt have any issues.




I have more pics but yall get the idea

Nice work salvaging the old box, sign of a true craftsman. Looking forward to your impressions and what numbers this built might throw up.

Thanks, the goal on the single amp is 155's or better at the headrest, when the second amp goes in I will be looking for maybe 58's headrest, 60 kick. Thats with this low tuned setup, all numbers I am looking for are below 40hz. I want a true ground pounder and will build much more for numbers in a minivan I have sitting here ready to get used.

Here is a sample of what kinda hurt its putting on the truck. These subs are brand new out of the box and just installed.
