09-25-2008, 06:32 PM
i was wondering if any one could give me some dimensions for a sub box for a 95 regular cab with a bench seat.

well its a 12" mtx that i have in a thunder box still.
this might not be right but this is just what i found on the out on it from doing a little search but i need to get another number off the sub it self.
Height: 6.1 in
Dimensions - Diameter: 12.2 in

if your short you will fit with the sub in the cab. If the seat needs to be all the way back then you will have trouble. My 94 standard cab with a bench has 2 8in subs that fit with the seat back all the way, but they are in a really shallow box, and i had to grind the back of the box to get them in. I can get sizes but if your sub is that deep your box will have to be deeper in order to fit the woofer in the box.

well i sit with my seat almost all the way to the front i think maybe 1 or 2 clicks from the front so i have some decent room back there behind it.

that 12 might fit behind the seat i checked with my truck and it looks like if u move the seat 2 clicks from all the way forward that there will be enough room. If you can get the model number off the sub that would be more help full. But i think it will fit back there.

the number i got was thunder 4500 series so im almost positive now thats the right dimensions of it.
but if you wanna see what u can find out you might be able to find something more helpful for your self.

you should have plenty of room to fit that sub. If you build a box that is 13.25 in tall with a bottom that is 10 in, and a top that is 6.75 in you will have plenty of room. as far as length to stay covered by the seat you can be no wider than 48 in. all of these measurements are with no carpet, or plastic in the back, so if there is carpet or plastic your measurements will be a little different.
MTX has technical info on their sight that tells you recommended box sizes. Good luck and if you need help post up.

i was thinking if i can sell this sub box and sub on craigslist ill buy ether a 10 or an 8in sub so i can fit it a little easier with out having to worry about hitting anything.
the only thing i would have to worry about is the back of the seat my cab doesn't have anything under the window but bare metal

if you sell the sub i would go with a 10. I have 2 8 in sups and they are lacking in performance, also most prefab 10 boxes will fit perfectly with no problems, kickers CVT fits great, but im too tall so it wont fit with were i put my seat in my truck. If you were to do an 8 the only one i would recommend is the Image Dynamics ID8 that sub is amazing.

i was looking to get one form JL audio cause i can get a deal on one

I just built a box for two 10" JL W1v2 that will fit nicely behind the seat. The volume of each side of the box is .69 cu. ft. The box has a speaker mounting depth of about 4.5". If you need dimensions let me know and I can give them to you. Also, I can get pictures tomorrow because I have to build another one.

ya pictures would be sick.
i was thinking about the JL audio 10 w3v3 i have herd nothing but good things about them.

A 10w3 is a deep sub. You are going to lose seat space. I will have pictures of the box in a lil bit.

nice set up.

Thanks man. I can give you dimension on my box for two 10s or I can give you dimensions for one 10. Without mounting amps to the front of the box there is none to very little seat movement loss. If you gone with only one sub then you can mount your amp on either side of the box and you will hve no seat movement loss. The only problem is that the depth of the box that I built wiht about 4.5" so you will have to get a smaller sub than the v3.

ahh alright thanx for the heads up on that

I have a 96 ranger standard cab with 2 12 in pioneer flat pistons and with boxes that are just narrow enough to fit the subs I have to have the seat all the way forward. They still barely fit. If your short and can fit it is good.

you might consider looking at other subs. 8s can pound with the right one in a tuned box. check out the addictive audio excruci8,soundsplinter RL-i8, and the digital designs audio 1508. they all run about 500w RMS and the digital designs will run 1800w max, they all hit low and hard.
