    You guys who have subs in the back where they are eccentially facing each other....do they cancel eachother out or clash or anything?

    What do you mean by facing each other???, Directly in front of each other like a clam shell? Or across the truck from each other.
    In the first type, you need to pay speacial heed to hoe the encloser is built. In the second, well yes it possible that you may have a slight bit of cancelation, but not enough to worry about. If you were copmeteing and trying to gain every bit of SPL the yes you might have an issue. But under normal circumstances, no yuo shouldnt have a problemo!!

    I assume you are talking like making the panel boxes like some of the other people here. I plan on doing something similar to that but going to try and angle the panels toards the back a touch. Unfortunetly no way 12" RF DVC's are going to fit in the side panels... none the less sond good. LOL

    10" subs work nicely in some wood side panels.........used MTX Thunder 5000 in mine with a 5/8" spacer, sound great and thump pretty good.

    See them at my site below on the interior page...............

    What is the depth of your sub? I am running a single 10" RF Punch XLC off a RF 200a Amp. It is built into the rear side panel. Check out my site to see what I did. According to RF specs for your sub, you will require 1.25 - 1.75 cu ft of air space. By my calculations you could do this using the space behind the side panel as your box. The trick is to seal it. My 10" didn't require that much air space and it was fairly simple to seal.

    Well Fred, thanks for the info on the space needed. Turns out it does use the whole side panel as its' "box". Sealed at the tailgate and there is a little bit of "porting" at the front end of the panel by the door..........haha. Does work well and is plenty for me anymore............when I was 25 it would have been 15" Cerwin Vegas in a box in the rear, but no more.
