That box looks like it should work. The subs have a massive surround. So they need a taller box than your average sub.
The box fits under the back seat in the supercrew so its not very tall. But it has a 5" mounting depth

I wouldn't buy anything with the boss name either. Go to sky highs website. But really you'd come out cheaper just buying welding cable. It's pure ofc and cheaper. Buy like 2 gauge and it should be around the same size as car audio 4 gauge I believe.

I know this is a different size but when I ordered my 1/0 50 foot spool from ski high it was cheaper than welding cable at the time

cca or ofc?

----------

50' of welding cable is $125. 50' sky high is $175. I won't include cca in this because it isn't comparable. All I run is ofc. Too many horror stories for me.

----------

And the 2/0 welding will be bigger than the 1/0 shca and is more tolerant to heat.

I'm talking about the little end pieces that go on the floor that holds the box up.

Yeah mine did on the passenger side. It's because I have the wires than on that side and it pushed the carpet up. I pulled some of the insulation out under the sub and works fine now

I'm gonna run the wires around the box so they wont interfere. I'm ready to get this all installed.
