Default Idea for custom sub enclosure...?

Well looks like I have sold my subs amp wiring and all the goodies. I wanted to pick up a bumper a fellow member was selling, unfortunatly, I have a mortgage payment that is more important.

However, I thought about taking $100 and picking up another kicker compcvr 10. I dont need or want anything to shake the world like before, just something to balance out sound and get a little bass.

so this is my idea, take apart the full length center console, and trace out the sides on 5/8" MDF. making the console itself a box. It would still house all the attachments like the cup holder and message center. I'm thinking I could grab a small amp and install it in the storage area.

What do you guys think on this? I might even go with an 8" woofer if the 10 is to big, but well see.

Yea I helped my friend do the same thing like for years back except he had a Boston acoustic and it was a s10! It was great make sure you vent it tho. A kicker comp 8 would b a lil to small not worth the work to make the box! But a ten would do fine!

my 8 flexs the back of my cab and can flex my dash if i turn it up... so idk why you act like your the grand master of audio advice.

an 8 can be enough or a 10 on 150 watts could be enough if you jus want a lil more bass

I just want something to equalize the sound out, the stock speakers or even aftermarket just dont have the low end. I think an 8 should do fine. I have a kicker comp cvr 8" that I have had for years, I stuck it in my expdition where the stock sub was, but the amp blew

Do a Sundown sa-8. I can find you one for like $120. Throw about 500w to that beast and enjoy!
