    Anyone have any blueprints for a double cab behind the seat dual ported 8" box? was gonna go under the seat but the cost and time outwieghs my budget. Have two 2 ohm 8 L7 8s and trying to find the best design for them in a ported enclosure or should i really save the money and just get a supercrewsound sealed box? suggestions...

    I have always like sealed better but ported sounds okay when done right. I would be worried about size though. I believe a ported box generally takes more size than a sealed box. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. If it were me I'd go sealed.

    It all boils down to how much bass you want and the space your willing to sacrifice for it. If you want loud bass then Yes, if you need all the space back there then NO on the 8's.

    Question will Fosgate P2's bass sound good in a double cab limited pace and will they have enough room for good solid bass? If anyone has an answer to that question or point me in the right direction I appreciate it Thanks.

    I am a diehard RF guy, I only buy the best they make. However.....i'm not sure about there mid level stuff, there are better brands out there. I would go to JL personally if your looking for a good middle of the road sub. :anonymous:
