    Mr. Marv

    Ditto Bradley.
    Looking to do the same thing.
    But will be mounting the same amplifiers higher up so I can get to the adjustments on the bottom side.

    What are you thoughts about leaving the top factory trim piece off to facilitate additional air flow and cooling for the amps.

    The JL amps cool very well mounted in the position as shown (fins up) and there is plenty of room for airflow even with the trim on. Drop me an email or give me a call at the number below and we'll see what we can come up with for you.

    Total cost would depend on whether you would be installing it yourself or having someone do it for you and if you send me an email/PM I'll send you a copy of the parts/material breakdown.

    Hey Mr. Marv!

    I had talked to you in another post (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/audio-video/19541-double-cab-sub-options.html) about going with a 13TW5 and I was floundering a bit on amp choice... On the one hand, I was hoping to get an amp that had the headroom to upgrade to a 2nd 13TW5 if I find that a single 13TW5 just isn't enough, but now that I'm looking at it again, I'm not sure if I could fit a 2nd 13TW5 behind the seat in a double cab and maintain use of at least one child restraint hook for a car seat. :confused:

    1. Have you designed (or do you know if) a box that would accommodate 2 13TW5s would allow the installation of at least one car seat?

    2. I've been pretty set on Rockford Fosgate Power Amps, but I'm open. Would you suggest using another type of amp?

    Thanks!:)

    Hey Pugnaxx. Yes I do have an enclosure design to fit dual 13TW5's however I need to use the entire rear wall to fit them so you wouldn't be able to use or keep any of the child seat restraints.
    On the other hand if you are willing to modify the seat location a bit I can make a modification which will allow you to use the center restraint.

    My criteria for which amp to use is as follows:
    reputable manufacturer
    has the power/features needed
    fits where you need it to fit
    location of connections/controls
    does not have a track record of overheating/failing etc
    price
    looks if that's important

    Personally if I was running a pair of 13TW5's I would use the JL HD1200/1 when it comes out. :).

    Specifications:

    * Type: Class D, Monoblock Subwoofer Amplifier
    * Continuous Power:
    o 1200W x 1 @ 1.5 - 4 ohms
    o (11.0V-14.5V supply with <0.08% THD+N)

    That's a nice looking box up there! Thanks for all the great information, you've been an invaluable resource in designing my system! I'm still doing a little more research, but I feel like I'm getting closer. Looking more and more at the JL 500/1v2 and sticking to the one 13TW5...

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of seat modification would we talking about (how much would it move and what's involved)? Thanks again!:)

    If you want the rear seats to still fold down all the way you would need to move the seat back as well as bottom forward an inch or so with spacers and by repositioning the latches. If you are not too concerned with folding the rear seat all the way down you could just move the seat back forward for the extra clearance. :)

    I dont know how many times i have read that line and kinda wondered.. if i
    would laugh or think nothing of it...
    Now that I have started my install.....HAAAAAHAAAA haaahaaaa!!!!!!:puke:

    I cant believe how tiny the magnet is and how light the whole damn thing is!!! It would take ten of these stock speakers to equal the weight of one that I'm installing, not that weight has anything to do with quality but wow what a difference!!

    Good info here, put it to good use!
