Talking Center Console SUB BOX

I was thinking about building a sub box that fit and resembles the front center console. If anyone has done this b4 and has pics I would LOVE to see them. I am not talking about the box off of a web site. I want to make a box out of plywood and then put the seat cover on it so I can still utilize the seat. PLEASE HELP if you have done this b4. Thanks in advance.http://www.ramforumz.com/images/smilies/smileup.gif

I would recommend using MDF instead of ply wood, it is denser and won't resonate. I've started building my own box and did a lot of looking around on youtube for how other had done it. There was some good stuff on there. I also read an article in one of the truck mags about a write up about this very thing where they built a box and used the top of the center seat so it still looked fairly stock. I'll have a root around and see if I can find the mag.

If I was you i would buy this box for the dimensions and then return it once you have done that. then build one that resembles it.

22" length? Wow, that is either going to hang out the back or get right close to the cupholders. If you have the floor mounted 4 wheel drive selector, I hope it would clear that lever as well...

Thanks to all that replied. To KENS04 thanks for that. I will have to measure the seat itself and see just how long it really is. Wish I had a heated shed or garage to start working on this. It's -20 with the windchill here in NW IL. Once again thanks everyone!!!

I have a 2000 2500 Ext. Cab and didn't like any of the under seat boxes as I use this space for storage. I also like to have a very stealthy system. So I have decided to design my own box.

I am half way through creating a custom box that will be hidden inside the seat portion of my middles seat/center console. The internal volume we be .499 cu feet which is perfect for the sub I have purchased. The new Alpine Type R Thin 10 inch sub only requires 3.25 inches of mounting depth and .35 Cu feet of air space. The optimal airspace is .52 Cu feet...so .499 is pretty close.

Some cutting of the seat frame and frame mounts is required to get enough clearance to get this much volume, but the frame is ultra beefy and doesnt need all that material anyway.

I know the thread is about two years old, but if anyone is interested, I am currently designing a sub box to take the place of the center console in my 2001 dodge ram club cab. The box is going to house a single sub and the amp, it will have two cup holders, a storage tray, and best of all I am going to re-mount the fold down storage compartment on. I am an autocad designer, so I am designing it to the T in AutoCAD, it is already starting to look great in AutoCAD, I can't wait to build it and install it. I will be able to give exact dimensions on everything, so hopefully it is easy to build. I'm excited about the cup holders, because we all know the cup holders in the dodge completly suck
