Hi everyone, just wanted to see if any one has 2 12's behind the seat of a 97 Regular cab truck. I've got 2 JL Audio 12W0's that I had in my Tahoe, but I wanna put them in my pickup. Let me know, thanks!

I have 2 12" Rockford Fosgates in my single cab 99 silverado...prob will fit...but you'll have to slide your seat up some.

if you've got a stereo shop close just drive there and ask em. they'll tell you exactly how it can be done and it won't cost you a dime for their advice. plus their installers have probably done it a more than a few times so if you could talk directly with an installer i'm sure they could hook you up.

I asked a similiar question about 10's a couple weeks ago, I went to Sound Advice this weekend and talked to a guy there and he gave me a good suggestion. I have the 40-20-40 split and he suggested putting a single 12 right in the center...it should fit there without causing any loss in legroom. We'll see how it goes

Here's my cousin's install i did with 2-12's behind the seats of a 97 reg cab truck
each are in 1.0ft^3 sealed boxes, and he is 6'3" or 6'4" somewhere around there.

Great pics! Too bad you're not in CA and not my cousin...ha ha, anyways, I'm 6'3" also, how many clicks forward did he have to move the seat forward? Is he still comfortable? Can you give me any specs so I can build those boxes or take it to a stereo shop who can? Thanks again, that is PERFECT! By the way, I'm gonna run (2) JL Audio 12W0's on a Fosgate Punch 500a2. Stock mids and highs for now running off a Pioneer DEH-P9300R. Damn I hope I can get the box to look as good as that one and I hope I'm still comfortable. Thanks for your help.

He had to click the seat forward one click, and his kness still don't hit the dash. He said thats about where he sits anyway.When I see him again, I will try to get measurements from him. The subs don't hit the seat, but when he puts the center console up it rubs the grilles a little. but they really sound great in the reg cab truck.

i bet it sounds good. i had 2 10's in a reg cab s-10 and it was louder inside than any of my other friends systems.

as soon as i get pics scanned i will post, i had (6) yes six 12's in my reg cab with the seat only a mild 3 notches from the front, i'm a thin guy so it was ok, box was 62" wide, 12"deep at bottom and 5" at the top, amps under bench seat.....
then i went to 3 12's have pics to scan
now i have 4 10's with a sweet amp rack, not painted yet

I had three jl audio 10s in the back of my standard cab powered by the same amp your going to be using. I tell you what...it was too loud! I broke the hinge on my sliding rear window because of it. I had to get a solid glass installed.
I didn't have to move my seat up at all either...which is especially good because I'm tall...and I'm fat...so I needed all the room I could get.
The subs actually sounded a lot better than they should have because the enclosure was smaller than it should have been...the subs were about .7 cubic feet per sub. It went really deep but always was clean no matter how much I pushed it. When I only had one of the tens installed I hit 129 db. With two I hit 136...I never tested it with three...but it was way loud.

Hey wreckmaster, I'm working on getting the damn toolbox out of behind the seat so I can take some measurements. How did you get the tool box out? Its being a ***** for me! Any help is appreciated. Thanks
12-09-2001, 03:34 PM
yeah, I'm having the same problem witht the jack box in my 90... i can't ge the bastard out and it is in the way of making good enclosures.. I'll also have the same probles for my 95, so any help would be appreciated....

---I am going to take the tool box/jack holder out of there too so I can fit my 2 rockford fosgate 10 inchers back there along with an amp. I haven't tried to take it out yet, but just by looking at it, aren't there just 2 screw dealy bobs you have to take out?
12-09-2001, 06:21 PM
I wish it was that simple. One of the bolts is welded to the body, so I'm gonna have to grind that one down, the other is bolted from the bottom, but its really hard to get a wrench under there to hold it, plus I think mine is stripped. You'll see how hard it is. Anyone that can help, let us know~!

I was taking a look at the truck i am actually doing this to, a 95 k1500, and i was pleased to find that while i knew that the interior was mosly bare of the plastic that adorns my 90, i did not know it didn't have that freaking tray in the back! That means all i gotta do is grind down the bolt and relocate the jack (i think they make bed boxes you can use in a capped truck....) so I was incredibly happy! I also noticed that Unlike my 90, which has 4x6's all around, the 95 has either 5x7's or 61/2s or something like that in the door panels! WOO HOO! I know this sounds like stuff ishoulda known way before now, but it's my dad's truck and i hardly ever drive it and i probably won't gey my grubby little paws on it till eight months from now at best. I am engrossed in the planning stages so i can just go in and do what i gotta do quickly and efficiently........ Sorry so long........
