great deal, and i bet it sounds good too!!
Did you do anything else besides cut the holes to put the subs in? I mean air/sound can leak in the opening of the covers....I put these two sub woofers in today little under 3 hours with all the wiring ect. I hooked up the left & right front speakers with T- connectors behind the factory radio. Speakers $65 each, the amp got at a flea market $10 wiring for the amp $20 total $160 ain't bad!

typically boxes are sealed (completely) or sealed with a designated port
Just wondering.... looks great tho

Hmmm, interesting. Never thought about using existing cover due to the same concerns about sealed or ported holes.
Seems like a good idea.
Im sure it sounds better than the present Alpine sub (if there was one originally), Im sure it will sound good to most people and worth a shot at first.I wonder if you add a rubber foam strip (like you would use for weather stripping on doors and windows on a house) along the top edge of the compartment to give it a better seal, if that would make it better.
And maybe make a port hole too.
I know nothing about subs and enclosures or the airspace. I figured eventually I would do a fiberglass enclosure like somebody did here, but this seems easier and faster. And I totally understand this may not sound like "money" but I've been a little lazy lately.
Not a bad deal at all!My truck just came with the factory stereo and it thumps with the 2 subs:git: I got the idea of doing this from searching other sites and they had one for $700 that was made from molded plastic (one piece) and it came with the 2 subs without amp. The other site I seen is the one for Alpine and they want around $600 for one sub and amp. Like I said for $160 not a bad deal oh and a few beers. Also need to mention I still have room under the subs for gloves tie down straps etc. The subs are only 4 inches in depth.
Love them!well there here and there on!! I'm Very happy with them. A little bit of rubbing at full turn but just let off the wheel 1 1/2" and no rub.:smileup:
We are thinking the same thingThanks. no rub on norm driving at all. The truck has a leviling kit, 2 1/2 in front and 1" in back. Thats as far as i'm going to go as i have plans to buy a 27-32 foot camp trailer. I don't think it would be good to have a big lift if I want to pull something that heavy.
Yup! The trailer :smileup:are you asking about the leveling kit or trailer? leveling kit is a supreme suspension. As for a trailer maybe a trail runner or Dutchmen. Either way I'll most likely buy from the U.S.. The Nitto Trail Grapples I got were $1400 U.S. and here in Thunder Bay they wanted another $800 on top of that..so $2200 in Canada for the SAME tires!! So I'll most likely get the trailer in the U.S. as well and save big cash.
