I could really use some advice here. I have a 2014 2500 Ram that I need to decide what route to take on subs and enclosure. This truck has two cavities in the floor area under the back bench seat. Fox Acoustics makes a box for it that’s molded to fit the area. It gives you 1.55 cu feet per side and it’s tuned to 35 HZ. You can do a pair of 10’s or 12’s but limited to a mounting depth of 7.25” and the magnet must be no more than 6.5” in diameter to work. They also do another box that has a center console for the rear built into this box. It let’s you use 4 10’s and the box is 4.3 cu feet and tuned to 34 HZ. Mounting depth is 7” max and the magnet diameter you can use is 7” max. I have no idea how these would sound and wanted to know if anyone here has experience using them or listened to one. The large 10” box isn’t going to be cheap by the time I buy 4 quality 10” subs and i would be really disappointed if it didnt work out for me.
Another option I have is building a center console box for the rear. I am estimating I can easily get 2 cu feet after porting, bracing and driver volume are deducted. I could do a single 12” or a pair of 8”s. This should sound really good but I can’t see it getting as loud as the fox acoustic boxes I mentioned above. I’m not interested in building an under the seat box, it would have to be fiberglassed in and for some reason the epoxy really bothers me no matter how well the area I am working is ventilated. I’m listing the install information below, all these items are already purchased and installed. I would be open to getting another amp if power needed is over 2,000 watts RMS. I also would like to use SSA subs if possible, I like being a little different and it seemes everyone is using Sundown.
2014 Ram Cummins diesel. 240 amp OE alternator. 2 new AGM batteries installed last month. The factory ground and cables are good sized, looks to be 1/0 but I can’t find the specs anywhere I have looked
Kenwood Excelon DPX793 , 6.5 JBL GTO components up front, JBL GTO 6x9 3 way in rear doors powered by a Skar Audio SK-M4004D. This amp has a separate run of 4 gauge Rockville OFC going to it. My sub amp is a Skar RP-2001d. I’ve got 1/0 Rockville OFC going to it. My goals are for it to have as much bass as possible without sacrificing sound quality by using a poor build plan or subs not designed for my enclosure. I don’t want to take any more room in the truck than I mentioned above, I have a family and the back seat is needed. I don’t necessarily have a budget but would like to keep it under 1k unless I decide to do the fox enclosure with 4 10’s, I would expect that to be around $1500 using decent quality subs. I appreciate any suggestions, I’ve been struggling with this decisions for two weeks now and could use some knowledgeable advice.
