What's up people! I bought the truck in October. I'm using the Pioneer deck, wiring, and Boston Acoustic GT-42 amp from my previous truck, the 96 Ranger SuperCab I sold in December. The F150 came with Kicker KS68's. I wanted to install my Kicker 08S15L74, but I can't make the 8.75" mounting depth work. So, I had 2 Lanzar RMP15D's lying around that only need 6.3" depth. I still needed to modify the rear seat to get the subs to fit. Here we go with the seat modification.

1" x 1" steel tubing from Home Depot.

Difference between modified 40 seat and stock 60 seat. The brackets raised the seat 1" and moved the seat forward 3".

I have yet to see a F150 SuperCrew with 15's behind the rear seat on the net. So, that was my inspiration! Here is the sealed box design with 3.45 ft3 internal air space.

Installation!



The Power Acoustik BAMF 5500/1D is brand new from X-mas 2010. It's been sitting in the basement for a year. The GT-42 is from X-mas 2008 along with the L7 15. The wife & son (18 now) got all 3 of them for me for surprise gifts. I got the Pioneer deck off Craigslist in 2009 for $60.

I like the install but do the subs smack the back of the seat?
Thanks SPL! I thought they would too! I do plan on getting some grills for them. The sound that comes out is unreal! Like I said before, the system exceeded my expectations!

Wow, nice working packing 15's in the screw. Im still struggling to get a single 10 under the seat of a 2001 ext cab.....
Thanks M! I almost bought a black SCab 4.6 prior to this truck. I actually leveraged the price on the SCab to get the guy with the SCrew to come down on price.

Do you happen to have any exterior pictures of the truck?

Thanks CT! I actually forgot about the BAMF amp. The wife brought it up in a conversation when I working on the seat brackets. At the time, I was only thinking about the GT-42 amp since that was the only amp in the Ranger. I have some other amps lying around...2 RF Punch 45's, 2 Profile California's A400 & A440XL, Power Acoustik Fire & Ice FI2X-1600, Audiobahn A2150HCT (I have it hooked up to a 18" Yamaha bass bin in the basement), Fultron Competition, & Autotek 7600BTS (broken).

i love the bamf power acoustik amps. seriously overrated, but crap they sound good. I've had no issues with mine other than a shorted voice-coil causing it to pop which supposedly was my fault. the solder seemed a little tall on the v/c to tinsel lead and would bottom out, but i was over driving at that point.

The front got caught in a drive way picture when I posted the Ranger on Craigslist. I'll eventually take some exterior pics. It's like this tho'. It has no window trim pieces and a soft bed cover. Same color, deep wedgewood blue...I call her Midnight!
