DCSB - best sub that allows (x2) child seats (nope, it won't run while they're there :-) )

    I have been searching and searching (including reading all the posts here).

    I am about to install a great set of components in the front doors and a decent pair of coax in the rear doors, but I know I will be missing the lows.

    I can't find a good option for a sub in the truck that still allows me to attach (x2) car seats, yes TWO seats... I have (x2) kids, neither of which will be out of a car seat in the next couple of years.

    Has anyone seen a set up that allows both car seats to still safely attach? I am not looking for crazy 'straight outta Compton' bass, but it doesn't hurt. I can of course attach a 'bass knob' to turn it down when the kiddos are rolling with me.

    only option then is to use the under the seat setups that a couple of people have done. There is a thread here on that

    It's not impossible, but if your box is bolted in than its going to require you
    to unbolt it every time you need to access the latch, which shouldn't be very often, but still.

    I opted to mount my own tether hooks above the box to avoid that hassle.

    I had to build my own box, with a tunnel down to the anchor, when my daughter was in her car seat. It was a PITA to build, and I had to fiberglass around it for a good seal, but it is possible, if you have some woodworking skills, to do it yourself.
