Default Door Speaker size in Ram? Other audio questions.

1996 Ram extended cab.

I have the infinity system...wondering if anyone knows what size the door speakers are and the speakers in the back.

Also, anyone add subs under the seat in the back? What did ya do, do you have pics etc etc.

I thought they were 4x10.

Many companies make under-seat subs, but the only one I ever considered for mine is the JBL Stealthbox.

Go to Crutchfields website. It will tell you what size speakers you have. Then buy them somewhere else...

6.5" will work in both locations if you would rather go with components. The ram JL Audio stealth box is sweet it replaces the center seat of the front bench. They also make one for under the rear seat but I'd only do the front seat version. I don't like people sitting too close while i'm driving anyways.

Do you have the little speakers in the door also? Great spot for tweeters. If not ebay some 98 and up a pillar trim and swap in some good tweeters.

I looked at the stealth box but not sure I want to go that route. There are several on ebay like that.

I don't have the tweeters in the pillars. I have the tweeters in the doors.

Yeah, I've had good luck with an underseat sub. Either buy it or build one. I built a decent one for my last ram, just make it out of cardboard pieces to get the size and shapre right, then built it out of MDF.

I actually need to go through my doors this weekend. My current truck (96 ram 3/4) has the infinity speakers but the PO goofed up something. Its a little different than my 2000 Ram.

The boxes I have seen are up fire, down fire or out the front. Trying to choose one. I think I like the down because it still gives a flat top and protects the speakers better.

Mine was upfire, I built a seated box, 0.45 cu feet, with a 10" polk and a 100watt amp. Was plenty for good low-end in the truck. Not going to impress your students, though.

I'm going to try and build my own. I still have a 4x8 sheet of good MDF leftover from another box I built. I just wish I could see others to get an idea. Can't seem to find much in the way of home built stuff on the web. There are a lot of angles to deal with on this one. I'm used to fiberglass.

so make a fiberglass box :tonka: thats what I am going to make, an up fire fiberglass box that goes under the seat, going to raise the back seat another 3-4 inches for more room. Now, I just need to get the stuff together and need to wait for the weather.

I can understand making your own out of wood, but I think this is retarded when JL already makes one for the back seat that doesn't require any seat mods at all.

Sometimes people just like to make stuff, regardless whether or not it performs better then whats on the market. I know I do.

Normally I wouldn't think it odd, but not at the expense of messing with the seat system.

I have a single cab and I hate my 10" behind the seat. I am going to make a box out of the center of the bench and cover it with the factory cloth.

I ended up buying a box, and took it back today because it don't fit without fucking with all kinds of stuff.

You have to raise the rear seat 4 inches and cut all the carpet out of the back.

Not gonna do it.

Off to other things. Stereo sounds good enough with the infinity for now.
