I test fitted my old box in my new Titan today. Guess what...it doesn't fit! It seems the rear seats in my 08 CC are a little lower than the seats in my 04 KC. Is it my imagination? This changes my plans a bit. I'll probably just put in a simple box with a single 10 until I get the bug to build something bigger. Damn the bad luck!

On another issue...does anyone know how much mounting depth the 08's have in the doors?

I wonder how much room the 08 KC has then...

Never understood that seat lift, why not just build the box taller and have the seats rest of that. I guess if you had upfire it would made sense though.

I just wish they made more room behind the seats on both models. A couple more inches under it would be great too!

You answered your own question Justin. Most of the guys have upfire boxes. I dont so I dont have the issue :)

The seat lift is a good idea even in a down firing enclosure. If all the weight is on the box it will be getting pushed down into the padding of the carpet giving the subs less room to breathe. The seat lift is a win either way...

I doubt the 08 has less room. Every truck is different. This last 04 I did an install in is about 1/2" lower than the previous truck.

James took that into consideration when he built my box!

Here you can see the box in the truck I like that it only takes up one side and is somewhat portable.





Some argue that up fire is the way to go. Not a problem with this box. All I have to do is flip it over. It fits either way.

Unfortunately the weight of my box and woofers does this anyways...But if I can't latch my seats my enclosure will go flying around when I offroad.

Reguardless of how heavy the subs and box are having 300-400 lbs of human body sitting on the seats will only make things worse...

Mine have already sunk into the carpet about 1 full inch which poofs the carpet in the middle up almost 2 inches from just the weight of the box, I had to put them up on MDF blocks :( Going to fix it someday though :p

Thanks for the replys. I'll have to figure something out in time. I really like my old box. I really enjoyed the sound stage with the comps like that. One thing at a time. I've got to be sure to keep my wife happy which usually means not doing this type of stuff.

I've got two amps now (Polk C500.1 and C300.2) and an AudioControl LC8. I need to decide on what speakers to use in the front. The birth sheet for the 300.2 shows 170W X 2 @ 4 ohm (14.4V). I don't want to overload the speakers, so I'm looking at options that can handle that amount of power and have a good, clean, crisp sound. Opinions? Critiques?

170 Wrms for a comp set isnt too crazy. The amp I have is 270 wrms and I have that powering a set of CDT comps. Do you really need that much power, probably not but it provides extra head room and will help you get the ful potential out of them. Remember its not watts that blows speakers its distortion. Granted you probably dont want to try and hook that amp up to a set of comps that says 50wrms but any of them that say 100wrms is fine.

And distortion isn't always the amplifiers fault... A poor charging system and wiring can also be the culprit...

I'm your really concerned you can just set the gain with a DMM, JL has a decent tutorial on how to do this. You could have a 500x2 amp and only use 100x2 if you wanted to by properly setting the gain.
