i had 4 audiobahn 8's in my tacoma for about 3months, i ddint like em; they didnt bump at all. so i decided to go with a bigger driver, but with limited spce for subs i needed something small but with a decent amount of watage andleing, i ws looking around and my friend came acxross the new shallow mount pioneer premeers, 4 in mounting depth!!! and with a 3/4 in mdf ring thats 31/4 i bought two, heres the progess so far. i happy with the ways its comming out, please i want some feedback, good or bad, ill probably ignore the bad tho.

Looks good buddy! keep the pics coming... but yeah, the airspace does look VERY VERY small... just because they aren't a deep mounting sub doesn't mean they dont need a lot of airspace. I believe and correct me if I am wrong that bazooka came out with a similar sub a couple years back that was like 2 inchs deep... and I dont think it needed much air space. But good luck man, it does look good, I hope you have efficient air space.

Great start on the box! That should look really sweet. Keep the pics coming.

I just read about the Premier TS-SW124D subs. Looks like a pretty good match for you. Let us know how they compare, sound wise. What amp are you running them off of?

for right now its going to be runing a bridged mono 2 channel ma audio 400 rms each @4ohms but later on im getting the audiobahn 250dp, thats goign to be running at 2 ohms 1000 watts rms so the subs should have enough bumping room wattage wise, the audiobahn amp is the only amp i can find that  goes loiwer then 40 hz, within a reasonable amount of dollars. i would love to go mattts but im not that crazy yet,
