Default Subwoofer install


This is how I installed a sub on my 99 Ram 1500. It worked for me and did not take up any space with large and/or expensive boxes...I:
1) unbolted center seat/console and turned it upside down, 2) positioned/centered 12" sub on bottom of seat and scribed a line where to cut, 3) Cut 1 inch inside of scribed line with grinder and cut the 2 metal rods, 4) de-burred cut metal with hand file, 5) Dropped sub in and outlined where to cut out foam using utility knife with new blade, also used fingers to pull/dig it out, 6) positioned sub screw holes so they would hit into the metal frame, 7) drilled holes and screwed the sub into the frame, 8) Connected wires and done!!! If


you appreciate this... thank you, you're welcome... if you don't like it... that's cool... don't like it but don't hate and



post no negative **** either.

Tidy and out of sight. You cannot argue with that. What are you driving it with?
I highly recommend those squishy type of ear plugs.

I just got my truck.
Drove my last car for 15 years with no sound system at all.
As soon as I got it roadworthy, titled and registered, I'm driving down the road listening to its quite adequate factory sound system and enjoying music behind the wheel for the first time in 15 years and I start thinkin about upgrades.
...Slapped myself.

JL Audio makes this but it's a closed box.

Right now I just got it hooked up to the subwoofer output line built into the JVC HU that I just installed; not too deep bass yet, but I have some other amps I'll hook one up later, maybe a Class D mono. Thanks for looking..

That's pretty sweet. Looks better than the 25"x15" home speaker box that also functioned as an armrest in my 78 f100 too.
