    First of all thanks to Mr. Marv, his attention to detail is incredible. He helped with some ideas and after figuring everything out he built this sub box for my regular cab. It fits like a glove and I'm able to have the seat all the way back!!! I got the box upholstered with vinyl, almost the same color as the interior plastic (I say almost, but you can barely tell on person). Enough talk here are the pics:

    More than a few.
    Nice. Are you allowed to say how much it was? 10" Pioneer sub? Did you have to remove any metal to put it there?

    I only had to remove one of the child seat anchors. For price PM Mr. Marv, the sub is a Pioneer TS-SW2501S2.

    no need to remove it, the box fits over it, the floor behind the seat is curved, you actually have to leave the hook there to level the box.

    You're welcome Eduardo and glad it worked out well! Is there still clearance with the grill installed?

    The grill is pushing the seat foam a little bit (the grills is 1.5" tall), if you sit on the passenger you do not feel it on your back at all. The back of the seat is not flat it has a horizontal metal bar almost right at the middle of it, if the subwoofer had been installed higher on the box, that bar would have not allowed me to install the grill.

    Without the grill or with a thinner grill I don't think it would touch the seat foam at all. IMO the sub would be fine without the grill, but I installed it mostly for peace of mind.

    Thanks again Marv!!!

    You're welcome and thank you again! Others will be glad to know they can get a grill on without much issue and please let me know when you post the video or just add it to the install gallery I plan to start here later this week.

    I calculated cu-feet to be about .415ft^3, sub sounds good, its more than enough for me.

    Velcro lol, but I changed it, I made an L shape mount, it still looks like that (amp against the wall) but now its more solid. I will post pics during the week.
