I don't know if I am just making this harder for myself or what, but here is what I want to do. I have a 2002 Quad Cab with an under the seat sub box for the back seat. I would like to have a switch up front that would allow me to completely turn the sub on and off. So when I have the kids in the car I can easily shut it off. Can I put a switch on the remote turn on wire to do this? Any other suggestions if this isn't recommended?
Also, I have a Kicker Comp in this box but the back seat is sitting right on it. When I bought the box, a pre-made one for this specific space, I through it in the storage area until I got a sub and amp to finish out the install. Just the box itself has left a slight indentation on the underside of the seat. With this sub installed it rises about an inch higher than the box. Is this a problem to have that seat resting on it? I will more than likely only have the seat down when the kids are in the car and the sub will be off and when the kids aren't with me I will raise the seat and turn the sub on. Does this sound like there will be any problems with this setup? Thanks for the help.
Having a switch on the turn on wire is the way to have a switch on that sub. As for the indentation, I would get a metal grille to cover the sub itself as you do not want the seat sitting right on the cone as it will damage it.
I just finished up the whole install last night. I ended up raising the seat to get it off of the sub. It was only 4 bolts, so it was pretty easy to do. I just added a 1" steel sleeve over the bolt in between the floor and the seats hardware. It raised the seat up perfectly and I now have at least 3/8" between the seat and the sub. I will post pictures later.
