    I'd like to have some side panel sub box's, but the subs I plan on runnning require a min of 4.5 cubic feet per sub. Preform the best with 5.5 cubic feet per sub. I plan on running a pair of them. (15" MMATS Juggernauts) I also want to fire them upwards. With the side panel boxs, I asume the subs face each other. Is there any problems with cancelation ???

    as far as a spec sheet I did not draw any up. just get some messurements around your wheel wells. the pics show the shape of the box's. the sound is great outa the back the polk subs are real clean sound, i am pushin them with a 1,000 watt sony explode mono amp. runnin it straight at 4 ohms . i might drop them to 2ohms but the sound is nice right now. as for 15's in side boxes you may be able to flare the sides out to face them up in a 45 degree angle and the inside of the box would have to be made to go around the wheel well. I think 2 12" subs are plenty. maybe 1 15 behind the bench seat! thanks for the complements!!!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    they are easy to make, it would not be cost effective to ship them, cause of wieght. go to your local home depot or lowes or what ever you got up there, get you 1 1/2 sheets of 3/4 osb 4x8 and 2 tubes of liquid nails (construction adheasive) 1 box of 1 1/2 drywall screws. and go over to the carpet section they have this outdoor stuff in grey and black, real thin works good on boxes. measure the distance between the wheel well and the tailgate that is the base. then measure the distance up your wheel well. I used a 45 deg. angle. then across the top of your wheel well to the back of your seat. then up about 8 inches the top of mine goes to the bottom of the topper. then back to the tail gate and down. made it about 7" thick look in my pics you can see cut boards for a referal. put it all together and use plenty of liquid nails to get a good seal. and pre drill screw holes. finish off with carpet use a staple gun for ease or spay glue but that gets messy. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Yeah you don't have much in there and that angle in insane if that is actually hooked up. I like jess... he won't give you a bad product. For a very long time he wouldn't make a slip yoke shaft because the slip yoke is such a weak link. Have you thought about converting? Andy on the list can machine your case and using some dodge 208 parts you can make a fixed yoke case. I would look into it. Only way to go IMO if you crawl. Nice rig by the way... makes me miss mine /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    That is impressive. Where did, or how did you get side panels with that soft diamond pattern in them?
