Sub box suggestions for behind rear seat


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what size sub box will fit behind the back seat of my 1997 chevy 1500 ext. cab? Im just looking for someone with experience so i dont mess up and order the wrong box.

This is the smallest box i could find. Think it will fit?

THANKS, Joe

IDK if there's even enough room back there for that box....I barely have room for a set of jumper cables behind my seat, but it's a 94 ext cab.

But this fits nicely under the rear seat- http://www.crutchfield.com/p_044CGMXD01/Q-Customs-10-Factory-fit-Subwoofer-Enclosures-1988-00-black.html?tp=129

Yea i agree with you now. I just tested to see how much room there is and theres not much at alll. The local car audio shop has a custom box similar to that for $160, but im not sure if i should spend that kind of money when ill be getting a new truck in 2 years.

The box is very similar to this one..

Should I spend $160 on a custom box when ill be selling the truck in 2 years, or buy some simple boxes that half-way fit under the seat, and half-way in the floor board taking up foot space? :/

If you wanna be a jerk to the ride moochers....ask yourself....are you gonna be sitting back there? 👍

Ive done 3 with a skil saw, jigsaw, and a power drill. If you have access to at least that you could whip one out in 30 minutes.

You can construct something that will suffice with just that list, but if I'm going to do it, I'm doing it right....dado and rabbetted seams that are glued being the major point.

But, I'm one of those super-fussy, perfectionist kinda guys.

I agree if you have access to the tooling then go for it, but there is no reason to make it that complicated unless you plan on blowing out your neighbors ear drums.

Screw box together

Seal seams with silicone

Cover with carpet

I guarantee you will never see or hear the difference.

Well, a friend and I tried to make a box, but the area under my seat is too complicated to make just a simple box and call it good. We had all the necessary tools and everything too. Table saw, jig saw, drills, everything.

You have to utilize most of the nooks and crannys to get a decent sized box even close to the cubic inches most subs call for in my truck.

on trucks like yours most guys will just get a box to put on the floor board or seat to one side... not amazing but you dont have room to work with... it will still sound better than plain speakers
