    Oh lord, please don't tell me I have to replace it! :roflsquared::roflsquared:

    Right now I am gonna focus on finding a box, prefferably shaved and tight... oops, we are talking about car audio, I apoligize.

    Seriously, I want to figure out the enclosure sitaution as soon as possible, so I can order it and the subs. I know I won't have time to build it myself (as much as I would like to).

    What kind of sub enclosure should I get?

    It will definitely have to put it behind the seat.

    This company does custom one: Dodge Ram Standard Cab 94-01 Dual Subwoofer Box

    What do I need to look for in the design and construction of the box??

    For those particluar subs it would be best to contact the owner.

    I know he has been very helpful with people constructing boxes for these. You do not by any means what to put these in a prefab box where you don't know the exact volume of the box.

    You can get a custom box built for .5 CuFt SUPER easy.
    I had almost 1CuFt in my RCSB Box (I got a thread somewhere around here).

    I'm excited to see this super shallow 12.
    Seems like it was designed for my F150.

    WhiteExpress you wouldn't be disappointed if you ordered these at all.

    I listen to a broad range of music, but my favorite is electronic (dubstep, chillstep, techno, house, drum-n-bass, etc..). I also listen to some Metallica and Stone Temple Pilots, and occasionally Rihanna, lmao!
    I do not listen to much at higher volumes, though this stereo build might change that... ;)
    I do drive with my windows down most of the time.
    I do not like rumbling bass, if that makes any sense. I like tight, quick, bass that feels like someone hit you in the chest with an aluminum baseball bat, but it was so quick you don't know where it came from.

    Does any of that make sense??

    Actually, here are two songs I really like:

    Ok I'll do that before I order a box. I am trying to figure out general layout/shape/apperance of the box and how it will fit in the cab. Also, where to mount the amps.
