I'm finally getting around to sound in my HD and just installed Polk Mobile Monitors in the doors. Head unit will be an 800BT Pioneer DD.
I really don't want (can't afford) the stealth box - anyone have any other ideas? Thanks!

Do it yourself man! I introduce to you, the "HD4mula" box



Build this box, and remove inner tub of the rear console, and it'll slip over the box. Will for 1 - 12" downfiring sub. Make sure you get one for a sealed box, for about 1 cu ft of space. Im using a Alpine type-R.

You dont....the Stealth box is pricey and you wont find a new one for under 400 bucks....

The Lincoln Blackwood box is pricey and too small for a decent sub...

THe box pictured here you can build yourself and that will be the cheapest route

I'm probably going to add a sub pretty soon and looks like console is the best option... you guys think this would work? only thing needed if it fits is part where the hinge attaches...

The amp that I'm using is an mtx rt2200

box is the same dimensions as the picture in post #2 by sonic. except the top piece is 1/2" plexi instead of 3/4" mdf

your link doesnt work so i have no idea what sub your talking about. mine is an S10L7 from like 2005 probably. powered by a kx600.1

well that one comes with a box. so no need for that one if you're building one to fit properly in the space allowed.
and for $98 shipped with a box i cant imagine it to be a new speaker. it looks like the lower end S7 square sub from 10 years ago.
looking on kicker.com the square 10L7 is $300 each. i remember paying somewhere around that also.

I was hoping to not have to build a box if the one in the link would work, I think it will based on the dimensions... I'm going to email the guy to see if the sub is new or used...

well it is smaller then the box some of us have made. so thats good.
you may be able to get it to fit with some craftsmanship. but it wont be easy.

that one is 12x12x12 the one you build yourslef is basically 12x12x17

cool... I'm going to probably order it, I think I could make it work... have to wait til after the holidays, so it will probably be in a few week, I'll update when I do... one more question... does it make your console lid rattle much? looks like it would...

The latch helps. I also wrapped the inside of the console with dynamat. Oh, and some black 1/4" sticky foam around the top of the console tub. It smashes down when the lid latches keeping it tight.
