I used a couple of rubber o-rings between the plastic "washer" and the crank to tighten up the gap.

Sometimes they get bunched up and break but they are cheap to replace.

I'm incredibly happy, thanks for all the help everyone, especially Dustin! I love the way I mounted the box, I just bought heavy duty Velcro and put some on the wall and on the ground. It sticks well since I glued it to the carpet, if a friend has to sit back there you just rip it off and move it over, where I put another patch of Velcro. Tomorrow I'm going to fine tune the amp and mount it down. I have it below the drivers seat, but relatively far back so it's only completely covered when the seat is all the way back. I figure it has sufficient air there, especially since I always have the vent on blowing at least on the third notch down directly to my feet. I also am going to fix all the rattle points tomorrow, it drives me insane having rattling window cranks!

----------

I also plan on making a YouTube video showing everything and demoing the subwoofer. As of right now I'm going to use "Centipede" by Knife Party. It hits hard.

Good idea with the velcro I'm curious as to how well it holds up. Not sure how your jump seats are but mine came out of the side not the back of the cab but I was able to tuck my amp in the cubby hole there fit like a glove and was never seen with the seats up or down. Also check into "internet friends" by knife party. That always hit pretty hard with my systems. So does "6 foot 7 foot" and "nightmares of the bottom" by lil wayne.

I was concerned about air flow, I knew it shouldn't be an issue. But I have no experience and I figured it wouldn't hurt to be too safe. My jump seats are the same btw. I just have a 2 door. I like Internet friends as well. Haha

My '04 XLT with a Sony head unit, Rockford fosgate prime series door speakers. Hifonics 1500 amp tuned to one ohm. 5.87 cubic ft ported box tuned to like 28hz maybe? Haha 15" kicker L7. Not to shabby of a system. One of the better ones around from my home town. Let me know what y'all think!

Post a sound clip of that man! That's sweet. A little much for me, but never the less, it's sweet.
