    Are you wanting just a basic ported box?

    I am running 2 alpine 10" type R behind the back seats. Bought the box for 120 but it is sealed. Had a hard time getting my subs into the box but eventually did. Sounds super clean and defintly loud

    I have a 10" ported box in my double cab. I'm sure a 12" ported box for the right driver isn't out of the question...

    Haha, no worries cause I laugh at the name too. I have a build currently goin on. Here's the link:

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/audio-video/112618-supersuks-2010-tacoma-audio-build.html

    I'm using a Dayton HO10 in a 0.67 cu. Ft. Ported box. It sounds really clean and digs really deep. It has enough volume for what I'm using it for. It can take up to 500watts in this configuration. I'm only feeding it 250 though and will upgrade to a 500 watt after I'm done with the build...

    20" rims, pioneer 4200 DVD, 2- 11" screens in head rest, 2 jl 12w1s, jl 1000/1 for subs jl 300/4 for highs. Alpine 6 1/2" components in front and Alpine 3 way 6 1/2" in back. Also bunch of other stuff to come as time permits.
    was wondering if you found anything out on a ported box. i built a box for 2 12" jlw1's and got it to fit with spacing the seat. sounds good but i like a ported box.

    Whether or not it can be built at all is dependant on your chosen speaker... most 12" speakers wont fit without seat mods. Next you have to design it within tolerances of .1" make the seat backs not foldable and remove the plastic backing. The port sizes and needed airspace is available on almost any sub... good luck with trying to get a 12" ported to fit. Thats why the tacotunes costs so much. You will have many failures before you get the thing to even fit.
