Yeah my box looks bad because of the horrible carpeting job I did, but it is just temporary. It has been on hold tho, I want performance not sound now. Yeah I couldnt fot 10" JLs in my box, I could have fit the 10" MTXs, they just dont go so deep, but my truck sure does pound. I will put these "little" 8s against any 10s, so far I have always won. People always get in my truck and ask if I have 10s, when I tell them I have 8s they dont believe me until I show them LOL. Did your subs make the heat shield above your exhaust rattle like crazy, I had to pry some Fire Board between it and the floorboards. No more problems, and it doenst even get that hot, I could have just used some MDF board in place of the Fire board.
