    Ive got a sub/amp on the way and probably ordering components/amp today and trying to figure out where to have the amps put. The sub will be a single 10" behind the rear drivers side, so I dont have it build into part of the sub enclosure itself.

    Curious to see some pics of your guys' setups!

    Not all amps are built the same but the old school hifonics amps are raw power

    Yeah, the sub is on the other side. To be honest I don't have any idea where the enclosure comes from. I bought the truck with it already in there. I've been meaning to take it out to check out how they did the wiring to make sure its ok. I'll probably do it this week or weekend, I'll see if i can find any markings or stamps of who makes it.

    Wow! That looks like someone took the whole passenger side plastic compartment and repopped it in fiberglass with a sub box. I see no seams like with the Scosche Taco sub that slid into that area. Totally dig it. That has to be the cleanest, most factory looking double cab sub I have yet to see.

    That made me remember the Good ol days of my HiFonics Hercules on my Orion XTR3's and later on down the line Punch 45's on my first set of JL 10's. That Hercules gave off some heat in a single cab gmc sonoma!


    That's pretty clean I havent seen that mounting location yet. How sturdy is the plastic backing of the seat?

    My box is in the process of being built right now (for the last 4 months) and I will be running a JL 13TW5 on the passenger side with both my JL amps (500/1 and 300/4) on the drivers side. My box is pretty similar to one that Mr Marv has built for some other TW guys.

    It's pretty sturdy. There's not much flex in the panel when mounted and as I stated, I can still use the storage area.

    I've looked online and can't find anyone that makes it. It seems all plastic to me so I actually thought it was stock. I don't even know what sub is under there so I'm hoping to take it all out soon and see what kind of sub and who make the enclosure. I'll post pics when I get it out.

    Hmm...still looking. Ive got two amps (sub & components) that I need to decide where to have placed and figure out if I need to build some kind of rack for. Assuming everything shows up on time, it all goes in this weekend!
