Where to buy single 12" sub box for 05+ double cab

Yes I've searched! Only came up with 10" options. Mounting depth of the sub I'm installing is 3.5" and need 0.6cu ft of air space. Also, if possible, I dont want to cut anything. Just point me to the right direction please and thank you!!

3.5" mounting depth + 1/2" mdf for back of box and another 1/2" for front of box + 1/2" for the rim of the sub, and at least 1/2" extra for proper excursion room =
5.5" of total depth.

I have the JL stealth box which is loaded with 2 JL 10w1v2 which require a 4.3" mounting depth. Add the side of the box like I did with yours and you get about 6" of total depth. My box fits very snug behind my back seat and is mashed up against the cab wall.

Basically what I'm saying is that you should be able to get it behind the back seat, but when accounting for the larger diameter of the sub its going to be a tight fit. I highly recommend going to a reputable shop and negotiating a price for a custom Fab box. Trust me when I say this, you WILL NOT regret it ** ONLY if your tech knows what he's doing and can accurately calculate cubic airspace and port dimensions when designing the box!!!** If you find the right guy, it will be worth every penny. I would estimate $150 in parts and labor for a single 12" custom ported enclosure. But a good shop may be slightly higher.

Take your time, shop around, you will know when you find the right person.

EDIT: I may be able to have one made and shipped but I will need specifications of your sub. Price will obviously be higher for shipping, but should be worth it if you really want to do it right. No hard feelings if your in budget mode though, I think most of us out there are

When you say you don't want to cut, are you referring to the truck, the box, or both? With the depth and airspace requirements you've given, one of the 10" boxes should work if you're willing to cut the box, or take it to someone who can cut the 10" hole to 12".

Thanks for the info bro. I think It's kinda leaning more on the custom box size now that I keep reading about it. But yah to have you make a box and ship it out to Hawaii will probably be high price wise.

I want to stay away from cutting anything (box and truck) if possible.

This is actually a great idea. If you find a 10" box with the same mounting depth requirement and enough front surface area you could easily turn it into a 12" enclosure without compromising it at all. It would be your best and cheapest option I think.

Woofer cutout diameter: 11" round
Box weight: 11.5 lbs. (per box)
Dimensions (W x H x D): 16.75" x 14.75" x 8.25" x 4.5"

That box would probably fit pretty well behind the seat. I have one with a single 8" JL.
