    Well where's your subs? In the side panels, a box etc. Pics would be very helpful, I'm trying to figure out where they would best go.

    I run two 12s in a bandpass box behind the rear seat. I also run two 8s in truck boxes with tweeters on each side by the tail gate. Sorry no pictures. I took it all out after I rolled the truck. No top anymore.

    Ive run huge systems in all my rides in the past...we are talking full show setups with thousands of watts...with my current Blazer I decided to tone things down ALOT since its an expensive hobby. Plus I didnt want to take the whole ass end up with a big box...So, I bought a Alumapro Bp-10 (I think thats the model number)..its an aluminum cone sub built into a band pass box thats got a glass window...one of the best sounding subs Ive heard in long time. It set me back about 225 I think but it fits in a small space and rocks hard. I run it with an old Fosgate 200DSM that I had sitting around.

    Cool, I'm thinking of making boxes that will go behind the wheel wells and attach to side panels that i'm going to make too, then wrap everything in carpet.

    I have two amps, one on each side, mounted as high as possible behind the side panels, just behind the front seats. The first thing people will say is they will get to hot. Not so! I live in Texas and have run this set-up through summer without any problems. Once you have your system set-up and adjusted, the amps are concealed behind the side panels, the installation is neat and clean, they become very safe from theft, they are not subject to any abuse from being under the seats, they do not take up any precious floor space, and if you get water up that high, you have a lot more to worry
