Question about system in a Lightning...

Would it be possible to move the subs to the bed of the truck? Would this sound alright? I understand it would not be near as loud, but it would free up a lot of lost room in the seating arrangement, and give me more room to work with for a better system.

Anyone ever seen this done, or had experience with it? I know it happens in a lot of show trucks and what not, but im wondering for everyday use.

EW will do it, call or pm him. The hardest part for me would be having a hole cut in the cab and bed.

People have done "bed cuts" for years. I recommend a fiberglass lid for the bed and resin coat for the woofer enclosure. The actual cut does not need to be huge to get the bass into the cab. We usually do the cut about 6" tall and 40" or so wide. You can get much better bass since you have more room for bigger woofers and proper airspace.
