Need custom box... any ideas?

Im lookin for someone to make a custom box for me... its going in a regular cab 97 f150, and holding 2 - 12" Kicker Comps. Ive got a POS box in there right now and i cant take it any more.

you can go with either... sealed is alot easier to build, just gotta go with the manufacturer specs.

this is becoming a shitty deal... i need a box that can give each sub 1.25 cu ft of airspace in a reg cab f150 without loosing much legroom if at all... (Im 6'4")

Get yourself a measuring tape and determine what demension box will fit behind your seats, then get some saws and 3/4" MDF and get to work...

I build boxes for cheaper than a shop would charge you.

The fact that its not my truck and it wouldnt be there all the time to test fit might be a problem.

Pm me, maybe we can work something out.

When you have no room (F150 std cab) you need to do a sealed box. One 12 is probably all you can fit properly. Also, the armrest won't fold unless you move the seat forward. Enjoy.














Do a bed cut.

You could also do a ported single sub, with a box that streched from one side to another, but it gets pretty complicated.

Like EW said, I would stay with sealed.

Doing a blow through is pretty expensive, can be a pain if you try to sell your truck, and takes away some bed space.
