    Ive already tried searching, does anyone have plans for 1 13tw5 enclosure behind the seat in a double cab? id like to build my own box. I'm in college and I'm almost broke. I'm pretty sure i read that mr. mary charges for his plans so i was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help me out

    Good choice on the sub I am putting 2 of those in. I dont have a "plan" drawn for a basic box but it is pretty easy to dray yourself just pull the plastic off the back wall measure the width height and depth you have to work with, remember when designing the box to take the top and bottom depth measurements leaving enough space to mount the speaker so that it won't slap the back of the seat. Once you know how much space you can take up then calculate how much air space that is and if needed make the design a little larger or smaller to have the internal space of the box as close to perfect as you can get it.

    Jl audio recommends 0.8 cubic feet net internal volume for the 13tw53 the driver takes up 0.052 of that internal volume which means a perfect enclosure size would be 0.852 cubic feet total internal volume if you haven't done this much you can find a very useful calculator in www.rockfordfosgate.com they have a speaker box calculator that allows you to enter measurements and the thickness of wood you are using and it tells you the net internal volume I think it might even give you an option to print a cut list for the wood too but if not it is pretty easy to figure out once you have all the measurements.

    FWIW

    JL tech support says .8 cu/ft total. Do not include extra for sub displacement. That's how I built mine.

    would you happen to have the plans? or just the overall length of it?

    To be honest, I already tried to find my notes and drawings to help you out, but to no avail. I installed mine on the drivers side and had to make a notch in the bottom of the box to accomodate the seat-back hinge. Then, discount that from the overall dimensions from the box. If I get to it, I could pull some measurements from the box itself. It is not that difficult. Its basic geometry.

    When you are building the box you want it to be as Close as possible to the recommended specs from jl, however you don't need to be worried about a few hundredths of a cubic foot if it is a little off to fit then that's fine. I have built boxes for them down to .5 for customers and they still did very well although I wouldn't recommend that it was a little too small. Also I have put them in a box up to around 1.0 with no change in sound.
