    i know... another access cab sub thread! check it out though, i think i've come up with something really unique.

    i took the concept from the jl stealth box, but adapted it to fit a jl 6w3 in a ported enclosure. the rear seats still fold down normally!

    i cut out the entire middle of the center console so that the box slides in. it is anchored to both the console and the floor bracket so that it won't move. this deletes about 90% of the center console but still leaves some storage, as well as the cupholders. i can still keep pens/paper, wallet, candy bars, misc stuff in the console.

    it's .25cu ft, made of 1/2" mdf, with a 16" x 1/4" slot port that follows the top inside edge. i used a box design software to calculate the port needed. initially i was skeptical of a port that is only 1/4" thick, but there is zero whistling. i've got some electrical tape covering the opening because the fabric looked a little ragged, i might look into something cleaner. the covering is velour from joanne fabrics in the exact same grey as the truck interior. a grille over the woofer makes the whole package virtually indestructable.

    sounds amazing, punchy and low! the rockford fosgate 150w rms under the driver seat drives the 6w3 like an absolute beast. the end result is definitely comparable to an 8", maybe even a 10! i've had 10's and 15's before, which were overkill. i honestly think this is perfect for the interior of a truck.

    nice! im gonna do the exact same thing, but im going to fiberglass a unit that will fit inside the console and fit an 8" polk MM that i have. the sub hits plenty hard for my taste in a little single cab wedge box, so it'll be perfect...when i finally get hte time to do it!

    looks really nice, but you cannot compare the size of a sub with how loud they can get.

    sundown makes 8" subs that are under 200 each that have hit over 150db on a TL and there were only 2 of them lol

    it's not about spl but the quality of the tone. it definitely doesn't sound thin as you would expect for such a small woofer. ive had a sealed 8 with the same power and it didn't sound punchy or full like this one.

    props to jl!

    Nice sub setup man. Very clean. And kind of stealth. I like it. I wounld'nt doubt the power, sq, and spl of them as I've got 2 8's that blow me away every time I hear them. :thumbsup:

    can you fit a handgun in the center console with the box in there?

    I think this is the only thing I dont like about it. I like being able to secure my gun real well..and that just does't give me warm fuzzies.

    i measured and there's about 2.5 inches so pretty much anything short of a desert eagle will fit.

    i keep a pack of gum in there.
