GMC crew cab box ideas

Recommended Posts

Well it’s been a minute since I’ve been active on here but I’ve just made a few changes. I traded in my 2012 Silverado extended cab and picked up a new (to me) 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Crew Cab. 

 

Looking for for ideas on what you are running or have seen for crew cab builds. 

 

Looking to keep the box under the back seat. There’s room behind the seat to mount amps. Using the factory bolts, I’m open to lifting the seat 1/2”-3/4”. 

 

I currently have 3 dc audio level 3 10s from my past build which I was running off an Audioque 2200.1. Although it would be doable, it would be tough to use these 10s with a 6” mount depth. I’m open to selling off this equipment and going with something different. I’m hoping to have something comparable as far as sound goes. We all always want more but that setup was “enough” for me for the last 7 years.

 

So like I said, looking for ideas, what have you seen fit, what have you seen done and how did it sound? 

Thanks in advance for the input!

I think the most popular thing right now in the gm crew cabs is the 4 8's under the seat . 

This is a picture of a titan , but I've seen alot of the GM's with the same deal it fits perfectly no adjustments needed and you get the right amount of airspace .

Hmm.. given some measurements I took, I don’t think this config works without raising the seat a bit. Floor to seat bottom in the front face is only about 8”. Without a seat lift kit I’m not sure I’d have the space to forward fire 8s

They have a few that can be installed without a seat lift and then boxes with seat lift kits.  Ive looked at them a bunch and none of those pre-made boxes seem to have the right airspace.  The vented version have some really tiny ports too, kinda scared me away from all of them.  Ill prolly just build a dual 8 front facing ported one myself so I can get the volume and port tuning correct.

That's kind of what I've been finding. I'm not opposed to lifting the seat an inch and a half to 2 inches to gain some space so I can make a box. Any experience on what sub/sub and port config sounds best? Front sub Port side or sides etc? If I couldn't gain the space I would stay sealed.

Im still in the planning stage on this so I couldn't comment on what actually sounds good.  But I plan to do a forward facing dual 8's ported in our truck one of these weekends.

Sub AND port forward facing? I’ve been seeing more forward subs port side or sides.
