    Has anyone tried/used these? I don't have much of any room in my ford ranger and I found some for 30 bucks. They look kind of shady though, I think I might just be better off saving up for a decent 8".

    obtw, if you have an auto trans - cut the middle part of the driver's seat off, and build a custom box to go between the seats and up under the dash

    you can fit a 10" woofer in there easy and get at LEAST 136Db :big grin:

    << 93 ranger std cab, professional sound quality competition winnar x 11tybillion trophies (years ago)


    manual trans - with some mods to the rear panels, you can get a pir of 8's and the amp to power them behind the rear seats

    with a extra-cab, you can get 4 15" woofers easy

    92... that's just before the new style came out

    hard to say, since i don't know if the 93 had the same interior pieces
    but

    the rear window has a piece of carpeted cardboard that goes down about 3 1/2", then turns in toward the back wall, then down to the floor

    cut off everything below that line, al the way across the cab, including the plastic panels on both sides - removing the rear speakers

    you'll find LOADS of space back there

    i have seen some mods where an 8" woofer was in each lower back corner - but that takes a bit of plasma torch that i didn't want to do to my still-under-warranty truck

    Intresting, exspecially since the rear speakers give me nothing for the most part audio wise.




    Did I mention I'm 6'3", I definantly don't have much room to work with, so pulling this one off will be a feat. Now a just need to find the subs and amp to use.

    for that old of a truck, you could always just cut through the cab and bed and stuff 15 10" woofers in there :big grin:

    um, I have the Bass Shaker Pros installed underneath my couch (4 of them) and they ROCK. Seriously awsome stuff. They do not produce audible bass, but instead, actually SHAKE the couch. Its great when watching movies with explosions and what not. They compliment my sub very well. I have always thought about putting some in my truck... I figure it would work quite well. However, they are not a replacement for a sub -- they merely compliment the sub.

    would you have to run them off an amp?

    or could they run just off the HU

    if you didn't have any other speakers on the hu, that would work... otherwise use a small amp.

    if you have room for a 1.00 cu. ft. enclosure you could put a new jl 10" w1v2 in there. They only need about 150 watts (RMS) and probably wont be too much money prob between 100-175.
