    Default Subwoofer enclosure for Mazda b2200

    So I'm getting a Mazda B2200 and building it into a mini truck lowrider and I of course want a system in it. With a hydraulic setup and also a subwoofer for the sound system ... I need to know what I need to do to be able to have a subwoofer in the vehicle.

    So at first I was thinking about building a blow through ported sub box going from the truck bed into the cabin .. But I have a question about it .. So with hydraulics the whole car will shake and will this be a problem with the
    sub box port because if the truck bed and cabin twist it will break the blow through port? ... Any suggestions a personal experiences?

    So basically I want a Lowrider mini truck with hudraulics and a ported/bandpass subwoofer enclosure.

    back in the day i remember a few trucks having a fat rubber seal between the bed and the cab so it could still flex.

    Most will not recommend a blow through because it will break, and that's on a non lifted vehicle. But I've seen the rubber boots before. I Want To Say They Are Some Type Of Camper Boot. I could be wrong. Check out steve Meade designs website, they have done a few blow thru builds on there. Good luck and post pic for us.

    yea ive been following Steve Meade for along time but never seen him build something for this small of a vehicle ... but im not sure if the box will be blow through because i want to put juice on the truck and there is going to be alot of movement between the truck bed and cabin that might damage the port.. so if im able to remove the bench seats and replace it with two regular seats i might have enough space for a center console enclosure.

    Yeah, going to be a ton of movement between cab and bed. Maybe if frame wrapped it would lessen the movement? I wouldn't think the port would withstand it. What if the box was attached to the front of the bed, with the rubber boot being the only part that can move? I'm sure you aren't the first to do this combo. It's got to be possible.

    If so I would build a half wall up to the window line with subs facing you and port up on one side similar to this:

    A blow through is essentially a 4th and or 6th order bandpass enclosure and unless you're an expert with math and thiele small parameters I wouldn't do it.

    So at 1st I thought it was going to be a regular cab .. But found out that it is an extended cab which I was great fun to hear and yea it will be way easier to work with all the space in the back .. Thanks guys

    I'm probably going to build either a T-Line single enclosure or a simple single or double single port enclosure .. And have the hudraulics system in the bed covered .
    How do u guys recommend installing the cylinders in the rear axles? Should I do a custom coil over setup like this? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...da/truck36.jpg

    I did a dodge ram back in the nineties just like that with the bridge and it worked great. As for the leafs if you notice in the pic you posted there's extensions that have been installed between the frame and the leafs allowing for the hydro cylinders to move, notice the new bolt on the frame where the leaf used to connect

    So what u sayin is to do the bridge and extended the leaf springs a little farther from the frame for the cylinders to move correct.. Would doing a four link better or would just extending the leafs springs off the frame just good?
