    Default 13W7's in a crew cab.

    So in my never ending quest for a louder stereo, I decided to rip the interior apart in my truck and build a ported fiberglass box for two 13w7's. I'm slow this time or year anyhow, and I've been thinking about how I could do this for about a year.

    I'll post some pics tommorrow of the start of the project. Today was just measuring and removing the 2 center consoles

    My truck has four buckets btw, so the box will start at the front of the truck and go all the way to rear wall, the speakers will be downfired. The port will exit the box at the rear of the cab.

    Not sure if I'm going to paint it or ulpholster it in black to match the black leather seats, we'll see how it goes and if I run over budget on the project or not.

    It's gonna be nasty loud.

    BTW, I have a stealth box that was in the center console with a 10w3 for sale. The ten was just replaced last month and is barely broken in, will also come with a 1 year warranty on the ten. 250 bucks cash (that's a steal, it was almost double that cost and retails for 650.00)
    .

    I have some pics somewhere of an old install we did years ago just like that. we ended up going with a sealed box due to sound quality and trying to keep box size down. If I can find them, i will post them.

    Cool, love to see them. I'm thinking I can get close to 6cf for the box, but it's going to be curvy so that's at best a guess.

    Cool

    I seem to remember a guy in a Honda hitting 140db+ with a single 10".

    2 13W7's?

    Huh?

    Two 13W7's in a crew cab reminds me of one of the 21 Eliminators with big quad whip and arneson drives...

    I got most of the frame work done. I'll start fibergassing it and foaming the shape tomorrow or Saturday. It's a huge box, and I'm not sure how I'm going to get it in and out of the truck. Maybe I'll have to cut the roof off.

    The port will be off the rear of the cab so it will load, you can see where the subs will be. For those who haven't seen an actual 13w7 in person, they are a huge chunk of aluminum, and about 75lbs each.

    What'cha gonna power them with?

    Cost effective power for those would be two ORION D5000s, one to each. A TRUE 2500RMS at 1ohm. OR, run them cooler at 2ohm and a solid 1700RMS. You can get them for $600/ea and they flat flow the power.

    The problem is, they are 2 feet long - so mounting becomes an issue.

    Wow... I've heard 3 10W7's in an M3, it was deafening -an understatement. The soundwaves are going to act like a microwave and blow your head off . Find a way to hold the rear glass in... I'd guess it won't say on long!
