2D seat sits directly on the floor of the Jeep.

Is it waterproof?

I don't know many things that are truly waterproof!
It is made out of MDF and has a Rhino lining on the outside of it.
If you were to use marine style subs, then I guess you could say that it can be water resistant.

Yeah, I was being facetious. I just think that it'd be really muddy/wet in that spot wheeling with the doors off...

Here is a picture of the amp install that was done on the Jeep.
It wasn't the easiest to install and neither was taking the picture!
It was installed in the driver's kick area next to the steering column.

I'm guessing the rear seats had to be unbolted to get that box under there? You should also look into making a box that's only under one of the seats so that the other seat can still be folded down. I would really hate to lose that functionality.

I'm guessing that since the rear seat of the two door resides in between the wheel wells, the available space is too limited for a pair of subs, but it may still be feasible to make a single sub enclosure with some space for an amp to be mounted onto it.

I think that since the seat in the 2dr rides directly on the floor there's not just "limited" space... there's NO space to build a box of any type under it.

You have inspired me. I have built a dozen or more enclosures and had almost forgotten the shallow mount MBQ 12" sub in my garage without a home.

Maybe I can build a single enclosure for the 60% side of the fold down portion of my back seat...hmmmm...

...gotta love the forums...

You do know that this thread died just over a year ago, lol. I was surprised to see pop up in my subscribed treads today.

How about some measured drawings instead? It's unlikely you would be able to sell these anyways over the Net... shipping would be murder.
