Anybody have any experience with these subs/enclosure?

Recommended Posts

Just recently got a 14 Silverado double cab edition and want to put some subs in it to increse the audio quality. I listen to a lot of rock/metal and the current speakers don't quite cut it. I came across a couple different setups online and was curious if anybody on here has any experience with these or know of something similar? Thanks!

If you can swing the money, I'd go with a custom built box for your truck. It'll maximize the airspace and if it's ported, you can have it tuned to the correct frequencies. I built a ported box for mine and it sounds incredible. It cost me

Less than $50 to build the box since I already had a sub and amp.

My buddy who is very into the car audio stuff said that the first one from the first link would be good. The other two are crap he said. The thing that weirds me out though is that the box has the speakers pointed towards the floor board. Wouldn't you want the speakers pointed up towards the seat? I'm pretty new to all of this but common sense tells me you wouldn't want your speakers pointed towards the floor...

The speaker isn't touching the floor. It's sitting above it an inch or so. There's a gap and the air is pushed out. If it was upfiring it would be absorbed into the cloth seat.

I had a similar one in my 2012 and 2013. They were great!

I built a custom sealed enclosure for a shallow 12" for my double cab. It was nice but I couldn't resist and had to build a full length ported box for under the back seat. I spent maybe 18-21 hrs in the mdf/fiberglass sealed box and maybe 12-16 hrs on the ported all mdf box. I like the ported box so much I am gonna sell my sealed enclosure as soon as I finish painting it.

 

The sealed box I built is pointed up and the ported one the sub is facing down. I like the down firing one better.

if possible, go custom for the sub of your choice. A good "shallow" sub would be something like a sundown sd3...doesn't need a lot of air space and is relatively shallow for what it is.
