Custom built dual 8" sub enclosure (10" coming soon)

The guys at the shop I work at just got done making a custom sub enclosure that fits under the seat of a 4 door JK. It will house (2) 8" or 10" down-firing subs.
A national sub box manufacturer contacted us to make the first prototype so they can start producing them. We designed and fabricated the 8" enclosure for one of our customers (see pics) and will be making the 10" box for actual production.

Not bad! That is what I did for 10yrs before getting into the Jeep business! Keep up the good work...

Looks good. I'm interested in one of these, in the dual 10" version. Might I suggest the "JEEP" lettering go in the middle of the back seats instead of off to the side. What is the internal airspace? Can you cut the holes different diameters to accomodate different sized 10's, like a JL Audio 10W6v2? (Assuming there is enough depth) I'm interested. I have a JL Audio 10W7 in a Pro Wedge inclosure which isn't enough bass for me and takes up too much room in the cargo area.

that's very cool. i'd be interested in one of these.
when i bought my jeep from carmax i was supprised to find that the guy who owned it before me upgraded the rest of the speakers and had installed a kicker amp in the storage bin in the trunk. looks like he took the sub/s with him though. i definately don't want to lose the storage room in the trunk area so this is perfect for my needs

Is there any problem with folding the seat down?

That will keep you from folding the seat forward.

True, the box inhibits the complete folding down of the rear seats. There is only enough room for shallow mount 10's, not JL's. The customer had a dual 8 box and an amp in the cargo area and he wanted to free up the space. We made the custom enclosure under the seats and mounted his amp under the dash on the driver kick area.
I live on the outskirts of Whitehall on Duck Lake Rd.

It's a Jaap thing... You no understand.

You got pictures of the amp install under the dash, I am trying to locate a amp for a speaker install.

I'm not sure about the cubic feet, but I could get that for you. My coworker fabricated it so I don't have all the specifics. It is a single enclosure with two openings for subs. I've been made aware that I shouldn't be conducting "business" talk on here unless I'm a vendor. My intentions aren't to sell these on here so I apologize if I came off as a spammer or something. I'm merely just sharing a Jeep related thing with everyone.

I have a pic on my computer, so when I get to it tonight I'll post it up for you. I know it wasn't the easiest thing to do as the guy who made the box installed the amp. Needless to say, he's not the smallest guy to ever lay on his back and try to hold an amp up while driving screws in with a drill. Big guys aren't made for small Jeeps. Lol

I had a under seat enclosure like that in my old Chevy CC. It hit pretty hard w/ the right subs. I was running Elemental Designs. I would be interested in this box, if it comes to market...

I'd like to know internal air space and max mounting depth...

I've been told there isn't enough room under the rear seat of a 2 door, but our shop owner has access to one and will look into it to see what can be done.
