Okay so as most of you truck owners know, its hard to get decently loud without losing seating! I have an idea to build an enclosure / center console, like others have done in the past. I'm just having trouble figuring out how to do it. My idea is to have the console lead from the dash, all they way to the front of the back seat, touching actually, so my middle rear seat will be useless. Should i make the sub down firing, how should i port it? Which way should the port be facing?
My max Dimensions:
15" - Wide
14 3/4" - Tall
43" - long
According to the Torres calculator i have ~4.30^3 before any displacement to work with. Now as far as power, i dont want to do any electrical upgrades, MAYBE a bigger battery under the hood and the big 3. I really dont want to run over 1500watts, so that being said what kind of options do i have for drivers? I would really like them upfiring, i wont have little kids in my truck so i dont have to worry about them being exposed and possibly getting damaged. I was thinking 1 beast 12, or maybe 2 sa-10's (or something along the lines) maybe some 8's?
im sure you guys will have tons of idea's as far as drivers, and number of drivers to use.
This is just a quick design i threw together, 1-12" sub up, port back (firing under the back seat) tell me what you think.
And then ont eh front half of the box will do a little bit of fiber glassing, for my volt meter, bass, knob and cup holders.
