Re: Sub Box

It's more of a depth thing than the width/height.

I agree. I you are worried about the depth, get shallow mount woofers. They worked for me!

Re: Sub Box

Definitely want to use shallow mount woofers and a shallow box. If you wanted to invest more time into it, you could always make a custom molded enclosure depending on your cab. I'm going to be building/shaping a custom enclosure to for my two 10" Clarion Shallow-mounts and four 6.5's. That way I can make all of it fit in the rear of my 63's cab so that it molds to the back wall and the inner door jamb's. It's a good bit of work but it looks quite cool and very clean when done right.

Old custom classic trucks have soul. Their dashboards aren't plastic, and they've survived both the best and worst of what the 20th century had to offer. For the owners of these trucks, it's often the same story. Through both good and bad times they persevered, until one day they could turn the key and roll up in a customized truck everyone with good taste would admire. Custom Classic Trucks
