Howdy,

I've got 2 4'x8' MDF sheets in my garage and im ready to start building my center console...i have a couple of questions before i go to town with the router and bandsaw.

I was wanting to build my sub box into the back 1/4 of the console. I was going to mount the amp on a recessed area on the back of the center console (the back wall on my reg cab) to make it flush and not have wires going everywhere. I was going to have it "step down" 3 times and on the first step down (again starting at the backwall) was going to put a plexi window in there with some red "hott wirez" lighting to illuminate the subs.

My question is: how much airspace do i need for 2 10" Rockford Fosgate P2's? There 500 watts each running at 4ohms and how do i calculate the space needed for them? Behind eah seat just isn't working...i have the same problem as most other reg cab guys...lots of massaging, just no bass on the outside of the truck.

I'll post up my photoshop design if needed as well to give ya'll a better idea.

Dave

length times width times height / 1728, that gives you your airspace, you need to add for displacement of woofers. And don't forget that you want internal measurments and not external.
