Default Space for a Sub Box - Problem.

I have a 1992 GMC (Chevy) Regular Cab Pickup with a bench seat. I have 2 kicker cvr 12s and I want to put them in the truck either behind or under the seat. I don't want a down fire box and I have considered modding the seat to make it fit.

Has anyone ever seen 2 12s set up in a truck like this with decent sub box volume for these subs? I would like to have at least 1.5 sq. ft. for each sub.

Hmm, sounds tricky. Let's wait for Krunk to chime in. I know he used to have a S10 if I'm not mistaken and he is a bit of an audio freak. Chances are he might know a thing or two.

The seat is held on these brackets that bolt to the floor. I was thinking about possibly doing away with the brackets and putting the sub box there and bolting it to the floor and then bolting the bottom of the seat (minus the bracket) to the top of the sub box. That would give me more than enough space, wouldn't you think? I also wouldn't sacrifice all the room behind the seat where the jack goes.

EDIT: I just thought about it, but I would have to reinforce it somehow with some steel so that if i was to be in an accident, my seat wouldn't come up off of the box and crush me...

If you could find some way to re-route the steel supports, that would probably be the best idea. That does mean bending your own metal supports around the box, and that would be a pain.

I guess I will pull the seat out this coming Saturday and look at it. Maybe I could get some seats out of a different car that sit lower, and I can put them on top of it.

MAYBE I could build the box out of steel instead of wood? That way it would just be the bottom of the seat! haha
