    So I would like to upgrade my 09 Access Cabs audio. The main challenge to me seems to be getting a good Sub box, since there isnt much room to work with. I have seen the custom boxes that can be found for the A/C that mount behind the center console and cover the little storage box already. Most of them never show a picture with my year truck tho, and they are always missing one key thing..

    My Taco came with the ugly sub mounted on the back wall already, so I was wondering... Has anyone tried to upgrade that factory Sub, or make a custom box to take its place? I dont want/need anything huge, 8-10s would be more then fine really.

    Pictures, suggestions, ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    The box is from supercrewsound.com. My 09 has a center console in the rear so I had to do some minor cutting with the dremel. I was able to fit an 8 " JL subwoofer and it sounds pretty good

    I'm sure you can find one on Ebay, but alot of the boxes are made for the 05-08 access cab's that didnt come with the speaker mounted on the back wall. I am currently saving up some $$ and will be hitting up a shop to see what custom ideas they can do using the space the speaker is mounted on.
