    Anybody ever built a downfiring sub enclosure for a supercab? Or does anyone have a link to a site that has one that I can reference? Otherwise if anyone has built a box for a single 12 inch sub for under the back seat of a supercab that would be awesome.

    I picked up a Kicker CVT 12 for $50 the other day and a 760 watt Pioneer Amp for another $50.

    Any input would be awesome.

    ^ I also have a dual 10" down fire box. I didn't know you could fit 12's in a scab honestly with the smaller seat

    Well I went ahead and built a box and it turned out alright I guess. Only problem is when I wired everything (I have wired about a dozen systems in my time) I am not getting power to my amp. I know i have all the wires hooked up correctly, only thing I can think of is I have a bad ground. Where do you guys have your ground cable going to??? I just added a bolt to a hole in the seat bracket like Ive done in the past. I cant seem to think of anything else that could be wrong. I double checked every connection and I checked all the fuses and everything seems fine.

    remote wire correctly hooked up? That was the problem I had last system i hooked up. Are you running just one amp? I had my rca's for the 4 channel and mono amp switched, and the mono amp wouldnt work either.
