    I'm thinking about making a sub box for my 1999 Reg. Cab to fit 1 10" sub and maybe 2 little ones to fit 2 more speakers. Has anyone on here successfully made one their Reg. Cab? Advice would be very much appreciate.

    I got a 10 Alpine type R in my truck, and what i did was order a box designed for the regular cab from some company in cali. The sub was too big, so they made the box bigger, and i had to move my bench seat forward about 3 inches.

    If you get a sub in your truck, you are probably gonna need a slim mount sub. Alpine makes a new one with a depth of less than 4", but they go for 300$.

    I ended up getting aftermarket bucket seats, and i keep my sub in the middle and it doubles as an arm rest perfectly. I can take some measurements of my box tomorrow if you want, and all you gotta do is cut the depth down about 3 inches and it should fit perfectly behind your seat.

    That would be great, I have about 4 1/2" of clearance behind my seat and am probably looking to put the same subwoofer plus 2 other alpine speakers to match the ones already in the truck. BTW the new seats look sick man!

    sorry dude i havent forgotten, im just working on getting a tape measure. im gonna have to hit the coin star up tomorrow and take a trip to walmart.

    but thanks dude. I'm 6'1", and even with the bench seat all the way back, it was not comfortable for me. The racing seats have me a little closer to the steering wheel, but the posture is a lot more comfortable.
