Default Two 12" Sub box 2011 Ext Cab

I pretty much read every post on here concerning sub boxes. Not finding anything, here is my take on the Two 12" box for Rangers ya see on ebay. It is a fairly large, sealed, down firing box, carpeted with wire connectors. I bought it for an even hundy to include shipping. Spent about an hour removing the jump seats and the jack kit. The first test fit, it dropped right in and left plenty of room to move the seats all the way back and recline them pretty far past normal seating. The feet of the sub box leaves 4-1/2 inches of clearance under the speaker face. Since they are down firing, I'm not quite sure if I should or could mount the amps under the sub box. So if anyone wants to throw in an opinion, I'm all ears.

The Box looks pretty good back there!
Your Amps need good ventalation ,so you might have to mount on the sides or on top of the box(sides would look better)

Good job!

I would say mount it to the passenger side.
But before you do that, fab up some brackets so that you can bolt it to the floor, in such a way that you have to take quite some time to steal it, and also to keep it from moving around.

Looks good. Are you going to cover up the areas where the jump seats go?

Needs trim panels to fill the gaps on the sides and you should cut up the jack cover so you don't have to look at that ugly thing sticking out. If you want to do something cool with the amps, mount them on top of the box, then make a small cover that sits over top of them but make sure it goes the whole length and width of the box. Then do cutouts and install two-way plexi-glass in the cutouts with LED's behind it. Simple and sexy mod.

More progress on the 2 x 12 cab. Removed the molded in Jack cover, came off very easy with a sharp razor knife. Carpeted over the back wall panel. Still have a few more small trim pieces to add. But I think its coming along nicely. More to come as it progresses!

When the before and after are compared, I think its a HUGE difference.

With the molded in jack mount:


And.....without


Spray on adhesive, 10 bucks worth of automotive carpet from Menards, and a sharp razor blade.
