Default Custom center console

ok, so ive decided the box behind my seats with the subs facing forward isnt gonna cut it anymore. i gotta downfire them so i get more sound and not hear the cone distortion (which is little) from the subs being right next to me

so what im thinking is, do a center console that goes up and meets with the dash, and all the way back to the back wall, then goes behind each seat some to get the needed airspace. then with 2 slot ports probably in the back section firing either down or forward into the back of the seats. (i have 3 jl 10w3, so i need a bit of airspace)

my questions for yall are

any input? thing i should do anything a little different, or if you like it, etc..

and, has anyone seen any custom consoles in rams? i guess my search skills have gone MIA, cuz i couldnt find any. just found one

What if you built a box that fits behind the seat, ported out the bottom, with plexiglass to still see the subs. Could have it light up with LED lights at night, maybe cover the inside with a nice felt material. The port would run along the bottom and back of the box. By making it wide, you would get the required vent area. The face of the subs would be down firing into that slot, so any audible cone distortion should be zero.

Here is a thread that a good friend of mine has done. He has had so many different systems in his QC Dodge Ram and knows more about car audio that anyone I have met. This might give you some ideas on what can be done in your Ram. It is a long read, but well worth it.

It is and Dave has been doing this since the early 80's. He actually built my last box in my other DD which is ported and tuned running around 27hz and is running one Type R 12. You should hear this thing with just 400w RMS. It is CRAZY loud.

This is the custom center console/sub box Im putting in my ss/t. It was home made and fits great.



I have the sub grille off at the moment and re painting it.
