2013 Double Cab Dual-Sub Box install

So I finally bought all the pieces for aftermarket subs to go along with the infinite audio system and the touch screen display.

2 Kicker CVT104 10 inch shallow mount subs
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Kicker DX 1000.1 w/bass knob
http://www.amazon.com/Kicker-11DX100...cker+dx+1000.1

Raptor 4 gauge amp kit
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

All enclosed in the RT duel 10 inch sub box
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

$15 line out kit from best buy

After a couple hours of bolting, unbolting, removing toyota parts, hiding wires, and tuning the amp, the subs were finally installed.

With the knob hidden in the side storage (picture is not mine, forgot to take one before i posted this), the subs sound amazing and couldn't be happier with the fit and performance.

All i have left to do is put some fabric over all the metal parts that are now showing because I removed the plastic storage behind the seats, but that is soon to come.

If anyone has any questions let me know.

Very nice. I like where you put the bass knob.

I was looking at that sub enclosure as well. Are you happy with it? Is the fitment in the vehicle good?

I'm also curious if you tried running the subs with the seat backs installed - it looks like you have them removed in the pictures. I'm curious if they rattled or if they were actually coming into contact with the drivers.

The enclosure fits like a glove. It slides right down and in, the ports for the subs are perfect, and the wirin is done well.... It's definitely a nice box. Also it's steel reinforced so the box can handle a high RMS. my subs are at about 600watts RMS of power and the box handles it nicely and sounds great.

I do have the seat backs off... And when I do the fabric ill try to put them back in and see how they fit. I'm just worried of the subs bumping against the plastic so I haven't tried yet

I have a dual 10" box made by Groundshaker and I've got a good 2" or so of clearance between the seat back plastics and the front of the subs.

I haven't replaced the plastic yet. Been to busy to try to see if it fits or not with the plastic on the back of the seats. All the other threads I've read said they fit back on without an issue so ill see when I have the time.

I have a question. How did you connect the sub to the terminal cups and then to the amplifier. Thanks.

I have the same box and you will want to keep the plastic panels off the back of the seats. If you have them there they vibrate. I initially tried to insulate them so they would not make noise, but removing was easier and you never really see the back of the seats anyway, plus with them gone I do not have to worry about the woofers touching it.
