    Hey this is my first post here, but i've searched around a lot and haven't really found what I'm looking for. I want to build a custom box for the back area of my xtra cab to put in one kicker cvx 12. The problem I have is I can't really find any plans or pictures of boxes out there that will work, and I want it ported as well. Does anyone know of any plans for one, or maybe have any ideas for what I can do. I mainly just don't want to hinder the reclining or movement of the seats is all I'm really worried about.

    Why would you want to drive around with a big ugly particle board box in you back seat?:puke:Second of all the Dimensions should be based on your sub.

    its not always about the looks...you dont look at it while driving do you?

    OP if i were you id get one made (or if you prefer to make it your-self) a little bit smaller than mine....i can not lie it was a bitch getting that in the back seat because it weighs about 60lbs and its a challenge because you have to maneuver it behind the seats without hitting the sub....just something to think about if you were actually considering getting a box like the one i have...if i would get another box id probably get one like the second pic that sirsaechao posted

    I wanted to know those dimensions to get an idea of how big it can be without hindering the seats.

    hah okay, I have two tens now. the trick I found is to mount the sub after you get the box in, that way you don't damage it.
