Default Those of you With Under Rear Seat Mounted Subs Step in

how are you guys finishing your setups underneath your boxes?

are you laying down dynomat or deadening mat before putting the box in.. are you bolting the boxes to the cab of the truck?

i ask because when i had two 10'' L5's under the rear seat the box rattled so hard from the bass that we had to go back and the installers added two layers of dynomat underneath the sub box. although that helped a lot.. during hard hitting songs the box still rattled a bit under the seats and it was so annoying, almost like i couldn't enjoy the bass at all

so are any of you bolting your boxes down or what do you suggest?

The box I have almost wedges itself under there. I have 1 12" under the driver rear seat. Put one layer of dynomat back there, Only thing that rattles is my a-pillar on the passenger side that I can hear.

I sound deadened the inside of the tubs extensively, but other than that No rattles and no I did not bolt the box to the truck. Like mentioned up top...it's wedged in there pretty good. Having 40lbs of subwoofer helps too

I'll try sound mat first with my new setup and report back to you guys with my new setup

Do you line the entire tubs with sound mat?

I have a single 10" under the rear passenger seat in a Thunderform box. Tight fit, the only things that rattle are my door mirrors.

I would definitely do a layer of vibration dampning material, but I would also add a disconnect layer of closed cell foam to absorb unwanted noise as well.

If you are doing fiberglass yourself, or buying a custom laid fiberglass you don't need to take up space with deadening material down there. The fiberglass will not resonate if it's done proper. The companies that are manufacturing fiberglass boxes have them designed to fit against the bare metal, you could run into issues if you put anything in there. If your going with a plastic box, then I would use something.
