Default 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab Speaker Box

Hello, I just purchased a 2005 Dodge Ram Quad Cab, and I would like to get some subwoofers to go into my truck. With the storage plates that are under the rear seats I am not confident that I have many options. If anyone knows of a way, please let me know. I would like either two 10"'s or 2 12"'s. Thanks for the help.

I have an MTX box under my backseat that contains 2 10's. It's pretty nice but the only problem is you lose all that nice storage space.

you can always remove you front middle seat and have a box custom built to hold anything you want. thats what i did i have a jl audio 12 w7 running a jl 100/1 amp to it. its the most bass you would ever want!

Check out hotboxes.com, it is a custom box that replaces the storage bin under the center console, you can get a 10" or 12" it is also color matched to your interior. I have one and it is great, don't need 2 woofers believe me.

While i was searching the web for the best box for my 04 QC, i found these pictures. I DON"T have the storage plates in my truck, just storage holes i can shove stuff into.

Also, i found out that with the airspace available is not much! You can't run 12's unless you have enough mounting depth and airspace, so the 2 12's i had from a different car are on the shelf right now. A company called PROBOX ROCKS makes very nice boxes out of high quality MDF and other things, and has designed a box for the new dodge Quad cabs that holds 2 10's, and has sealed airspace above the cone, and airspace below the sub that makes for great sound, i've heard. This box can bolt down for perm installation, or not. You can also purchase SUBS from the manufacturer and they will ship the thing all wired, mounted, and ready to go (of course the box is huge). They have representatives all over, but i got it right from the manufacturer. Their website is http://www.proboxrocks.com/ 1-800-919-3313 They make boxes for all different makes and models. add a /dealer to the web address to get info on their SUBS

Some pictures i've included are from a couple of people who have the PROBOX and some other guy who built his own box with his amps in the middle. THe last is an MTX box you can get loaded with subs from MTX, but not as good in my opinion.

I am waiting on my loaded PROBOX to arrive within a few days ($400=box,2subs, $hipping). The people are nice, and very knowledgable. They offered to drill the perm mounting holes, give me the hardware, wire the speakers together and include 18 feet of speaker wire. They mainly sell to dealers ( i am not one), so the number i listed is usually for tech support, and seems like a back line. They don't take credit cards, COD shipping or money order first (probably because they just invoice their dealers).

Hope this helps,

James
p.s. The popular location to mount amps seems to be under the front seats, but i'm going to try on the back wall somehow because my HUGE Phoenix Gold amps stick out A LOT from under the seats. Also make sure your AMP is not greater than 11 inches wide, or it will not fit under the seat.

Not too long ago I picked up a dual 10" box that sits under the rear seat on ebay. I got it for $80, and its a carpeted one, made from MDS board. I installed 2, JL 10w3's and it sounds nice and clean. My last system in my car was loud, and I wanted something in my truck that wouldn't rattle the panels of my $40,000 truck. LOL. Although, when I get tired of it, and have the money to throw around, I'll fab one out of fiberglass. I've seen some pretty cool looking stereo systems on cardomain.com

i have seen those boxes before but i could not see how you could get any "deepness" out of them. the ones i have seen are not boxes but "faceplates that fit over and then inside the existing holes under the back seats. i have built more than my share of sound quality systems and for the beating i'm going to inflict, replacing the front bench (center) then reinstalling the arm rest in a sealed enclosure is going to rumble. (my opinion) [sm=happybounce.gif]

That is a pretty sweet setup!

One question though...What about the people who happen to be sitting on top of the subs?

That last thumbnail posted with the dual MTX 10"s is that an actual MTX made enclosure or another brand?

I would think that enclosure would sound better since it is similar to a down-firing setup vs the other that appear to be bandpass...and I really don't care for band pass setups.


Any of you heard these boxes yet?

It's not even worth my time making my own anymore with the prices on ebay.

i received my custom, center console box this past saturday (off of ebay) and the finish is GREAT. the guy used MDF and covered the box with vinyl that looks pretty close to my factory leather. i also purchased a kenwood mono amp to run this single 12's sub. all will be installed this weekend so i will post pictures and a brief write up on the install and sound if anyone is interested.
