under $200... upfiring would be alright. if i'm going custom i might as well go for a super-wide amp rack to fit a soundstream tarantula (19.5" wide)

all 12s, no 10s. already have the subs, but 2x10 boxes with an amp rack for NSB trucks are rare.

sounds good. if you cook up something with a 20" wide amp rack you'll have a deal if the price is right. :shake: i want to fit a tarantula badly. those things look and sound so badass.

so you need more? because you need some room for the magnet to vent or did you add that in?
7 inches would be ideal... don't want them to get hot. these are probably the deepest subs i'll ever use. if i didn't get such a sweet deal on the second perfect i'd probably just have thrown a couple elemental E10Ks in a thunderform.

Yeah I got a good deal on a couple of Memphis 10" woofers in my MTX box so I went with that. I get all my stuff at competitive audio in Springfield, MO. They do a lot of custom stuff. www.competitiveaudio.com is their website. They have always been real good to me.

The mounting depth for 10" Perfects is actually just under 6", like 5 7/8". I made my box with 6" depth, and they fit just perfectly, almost touching, but not.
Mine is downfiring with an amp rack in the middle, but I have a regular cab and it fits behind my seat, which wouldn't really help you I don't guess.
There are some pictures here, maybe it will help with some ideas:

good thing you're using low powered subs, becuase that box looks to have no bracing, and only a 3/4" front baffle.

Looks pretty decent for the price, but having seen your skills at painting those handles, ect, I would have thought you could have made a really nice enclosure. Should do the job though.

SQ, not SPL. but kappas will make some noise if they need to. painting and boxbuilding are two entirely seperate skills. but thanks for your evaluation.
