    I have a Boston G5 10" sub that I would like to install in my truck. The sub was to go in the car I traded for my Tacoma :). I was thinking since the sub only requires .5 cubic ft that it would be possible to fit. I think if I cut the cup holders off the back of the arm rest and faced the sub downward there would be plenty of space and still room behind both seats. What do you think? Has anything like this been done before?

    I am getting some quotes from the local custom shops. The G5 sub requires too much power from my 300/4. So I am getting a quote from a local shop who is a dealer for image dynamics. The dealer is giving me a quote for a box and ID8 D4 on Monday. The 8" 4ohm sub should be perfect.

    i've put in a clarion shallow mount in my regular cab. built the box myself. check my build. theres a video of it in action. unfortunately its not up to date. then i had a 350watt amp. i now have a 600watt kenwood. i personally wouldn't put in a 8 inch sub, they don't deliver like a 10 will.

    its a Kenwood KAC-6104D. they are about 130 at onlinecarstereo.com

    I am going with a Hertz 8" sub with a built to spec box. I will let you know how it turns out next week. :D

    I am having it put behind the seats.
