    I didn't want to cut or modify anything, so I bought a Kicker Base Station. It looks like it was made for my truck and it sounds fantastic. (I replaced the factory speakers with Infinity reference speakers, same size, no mods) BassStation.JPG

    I want to see this! I have 2 8's and i wanted them on my wall so this would probably help me out. Where are you putting the amp?

    I'll probably mount it on the back wall offset to the passenger side. My wife doesn't appreciate bass as much as I do, so having a couple 8's on my side won't be a bad thing. I'll probably use an old 5 channel Memphis (4x40, 1x300) I have because it works so well, and my Memphis Belle would just be overkill in a standard cab.

    Oh, my God, did you just say Memphis Belle? I absolutely loved those amps. My favorite War bird, my favorite amp.

    So how are u going about the wall? I like the sound of being able to put my seat all the way back.

    What you do, is build your box without a back. Obviously, you need to contour the bottom of the box to the floor and the back wall to achieve a good seal, but do your contouring after a couple layers of sound deadening. Your two ends, and at least a couple upright in between, can be screwed to the back wall. I will most likely pull my bed and screw straight into the frame from the back. Should give you enough air space for a pair of 10s, and still be able to run the seat all the way back.

    Or you could make it blue now and recarpet it when you swap the rest of the interior. Not sure about the carpet, but interior vinyl isn't too expensive. I think it was only like $50 for enough to cover my center console, with plenty of extra for mistakes
