sub\'s in a regular cab

I am wondering if any one has been able to fit two 10 inch or 12 inch sub's in the tacoma w/out loosing any notches in the seat. I have one 12" right now but I am wanting another one. I did find a company that makes a box for two 10's but I would rather go with 12's.

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

Hmm..good luck with that. The last truck I built was a standard cab and I put 2 15's in the bed and cut a blow-through. It worked pretty well, if you feel like cutting through your bed and cab..and if you have a tonneau cover.

You may also want to look into pre-made boxes by Q-Logic. I think they make a pre-fab box..but it may only house a 10" sub.

I have 2 JBL Power series 12's in a bandpass box behind my seat and it still slides all the way back. You might have to get a custom box for the best fit though.

You can get a 5-sided box made.. it might save you a few cubic inches of air space.
This utilizes the actual cab wall as an enclosure wall.

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

Here's another idea: If you have bucket seats, you might look into mounting subs between the seats, sort like Mike Finnegan did with Burn Taco. I think he made a custom fiberglass enclosure for them. Maybe Mike would explain more about this. *nudge* *nudge*, Mike. :)

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

im actually running 2 10s in my standard cab...2 GS Designs subs,and the MTX Thunder 8302. i built the box myself, but im planning to do it over.where did you guys mount your amp(regular cab)?. let me know how u guys feel, but in my opinion having subs in a truck doesn't hit as hard as if it was in a car, cause it has no room for the beat to roam around, thats just how i feel.unless theres a way to make the sound and beat sound way better, like face the the subs in a different way...let me know!!! peace im out!!!

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

I agree entirely about your subs not hitting as hard...when I pulled my box out of my Laser and into the Taco I couldn't believe the difference, those used to rumble the Laser and now they barely knock. Pointing them rear seemed to help just a little, but not enough. If you come up with anything better let me know, I'm running a single 8" now, mounted in the rear cargo hole in the extra cab, I figure if I'm not gonna get the sound I had, might as well save the space...and honestly, it sounds better with 1 mounted there than it did with a pair of 8's in the ported box pointed rear. Can't help you with how to place in a single cab though...good luck!

oh yeah, i mounted my amp under the passenger seat, seems to work well there, you can barely see like an inch of it if you slide the seat ALL the way forward and flipped up, but you can't see it from the front even with the seat all the way back.

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

I have that same amp running my mtx 12". It's under the seat also and the sub is on the passenger side of the truck. I am thinking about maybe selling the truck in the spring so I will leave it alone for now.

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

How did you fit the sub on the passenger side of the truck? Did you remove the jack holder thing? Where did you relocate the jack to?

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

JEFF!!! what was your experience with this? Did you fully setup the box in the bed with just a hole for the sound to come through or did you have a box that pushed through the hole to sit flush with the cab? Any pics? Do's , don'ts? Ideas?

I'm really looking into going with this, but I want to build a box that will come through so I can mount a pair of 12's flush with the backwall of the cab and keep my extra-cab open.

Any info would be great, there's not a lot out there documenting this kinda setup. Thanks!

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

Ahh, .....no I have an x-cab, I want to cut a crawl through into the bed and mount subs flush with the rear wall of the cab and the bulk of the box in the bed. That way I can have more sound (more than the 1 8" shown in my Gallery shots) like 2 12"s and still maintain use of my x-cab.

Don't have a jack anymore. I got AAA instead. Hope I never have to use it.

Re: sub\'s in a regular cab

I had a 12" Kicker Solobaric L7 sub in a custom box and a PPI 2600 amp in my Civic. It replaced 3 JL Audio W0 12's in a custom box and a PPI 2600 (theiving a$$holes). The L7 is louder, I was soooo pissed when I pulled it out of the Civic and found out I was s.o.l. on fitting it in the Taco. I had some guy trying to talk me into cutting a hole through the bed and cab and doing some custom fiberglass work but I figured if someone hits me in the bed it might really screw things up. So I have a L7 in a box for sale or if anyone knows of anyone fitting one in a reg. cab Taco let me know.
