Replacing Bose factory 6.5" subwoofer in the center consol with a JL audio 6w3v3. I have seen many people talk about doing this but have never actually seen anyone follow through. I also replaced my rear door speakers. Factory size is 4x6 and I put in 6x8. Made tempelate of speaker size and traced onto the truck door with sharpie. Then used tin snips to cut out the hole. It was super easy and there is nothing back there to get in the way. Then made a mounting ring out of MDF and a jig saw. Painted it black and put a foam sealer on it which pulled tight when I mounted the speaker. I did notice a better sound quality when I added the 6x8 over the 4x6. I swapped because I lost sound out of my back right speaker and thought why not throw a bigger speaker in there. I will be installing the JL 6w3v3 with the JL jx250 amp this week and I will post pictures and let anyone know how it turned out. Obviously it's not a 10 or 12 under the rear seat but I think it will add a much better sound overall. Not looking to wake the neighborhood. I have read many places it's is "sooo complicated" to get to the Bose sub in the center consol why bother with it. Not true at all. It took 25-30 min to get the entire console out and pull the sub.
I recently bought a 2015 GMC Sierra double cab non bose sound system. I want to put new mids and highs in the doors and pillars. That set aside I’ve been looking for a subwoofer box for under my backseat. It’s a double cab so all I’ve seen so far is slim pickings. Especially when I have two JL Audio 12TW1-2 subs I’m trying to place in the box. Yes they are “shallow mount” subwoofers but they have a meaty cage surrounding the coil and magnet; so not every box can fit these. I’m probably gonna have to put my back seat on fabricated lifts but as far as the box goes any suggestions?
