    As I was working on a few mods to pimp out my cab, I told myself that the audio will have to come "later"... Well that was last week, and "later" is NOW!

    Here is my list so far (Big thanks to Etroze86, Bradknob, Big Boi and Autokraftgt, because prior to Monday, I had never even heard of any of these things and they have been extremely helpful! :))

    2 x Skar amps SK-1200.1D & SK-125.4D (on order - Etroze, thanks for the awesome deal!!!)

    2 x Stereo Integrity BMmkIV 12" Subs

    1 x Helix DSP

    1 x KnuKonceptz Kolossus Flex 0 Gauge OFC Dual Power Amp Installation Wiring Kit

    Not sure on speakers yet ---> Need suggestions

    Not sure on sub box yet ---> Need suggestions

    *Need suggestions and a list of everything else I should order and do for this build.

    I have never done any kind of car audio work at all, so this should be interesting (or maybe disastrous, lol)... I am not looking for super loud, or rattle your teeth kinda sound, just clean, tight and good quality.

    Thanks guys! :favorites13:

    Yeah new reg cab build!!!!!!!
    I need to see what shops are in your area, I honestly can't recommend anything that you wouldn't be able to hear for yourself.

    I think I want to get the amps and subs installed and then build on it with dsp, speakers, soud deadening, etc..

    I guess the next step is to find/make/have-made a box for the two SI subs. Now that I have decided on 2x 12s, I can't get creative with trying to hide them in the center seat, lol! How about I carve out the foam in the driver and passengers seats and install them inside those?!?! Lmao

    Does anyone make a decent box off the shelf for the rcsb???

    There isn't one but getting .5 cubes will be down right easy.

    In! All these new builds, man. Lovin it.




    I like taking this route. Add sub and amp and you find out real quick what the weak spots are in the system. That way you know exactly where to focus your efforts. And cash.

    And yes, .5 cuft per sub should be pretty simple, and the fact that they're like 3.5" makes it that much easier.

    Good luck!

    Speaking of the sub box...any way there is enough room to fire those 12's down? I think firing subs down in a truck sounds really good, but us QC guys really do not have that option with the under seat limitations.
    You'd prob need 14"+ of depth behind the front seats....is that possible?

    Without getting to crazy in a reg cab you could try but with the back wall in place I could only recommend a ten downward firing. QC I think there would be a bit of work to that floor pan wouldn't there?
