Looks to be custom made. I haven't seen pre-fab boxes look like that one. Close, but not quite. There are literally dozens of different sizes and slightly different shaped sub boxes for Fbodys on eBay. Or you could have one made at a local audio shop. Any shop that does custom work can make you one.
Hell, I would if you lived locally by me. It's what I do "on the side" from my day job to make extra cash.

I've always wanted to get into that. I'm good with wood working, and apparently there's a lot of math involved at (I'm good at any level of math), I just haven't ever met many people that do it on the side. How'd you get into it if you dont mind??

I'm not a fan of those type of boxes. Can't use my t-top rack. Also if someone looks in, they see 2 subs and an amp. Also can't store anything back there anymore after installing it.

I love wood working. Took it in 7-11th grade.. Would have went 12th too but they wouldn't let me. So I wound up taking an auto shop class. Been a Home Audio fan since i was 15 (1980 ). My first car audio install was in 1988. After that I was hooked. Been installing car audio ever since. Been building custom sub boxes since 1994. Just got into it. For the love if it.

That's awesome. So did you just start reading about it (since you couldnt google it in the mid 80's lol), or did you just use trial and error? I know there are different types of boxes to be had depending on the sub you have from what I hear, but that's about all I know...

If you keep the hatch separator, nobody can see the subs in the hatch. I had my setup nearly identical to the first op pic. But I relocated the amp and cap to the spare tire area. Now it looks completely stock, until I turn it up.

Much cleaner. My previous setup was similar to the first pic. Sold the box, subs and class D amp a year or so ago. I Wanted a setup that took less space. Tried a single 10".. Isn't enough for my taste. "Still" trying to decide on how I want to do it. I will most likely go back to taking up the space in the hatch area, but running 4-10's.

I made my own stealth box. Slightly bigger (more air space) than the pre-fab ones. Am currently running this and a separate box to have 2-10's. other box Is just sitting on the hatch floor (T-top area). Till I make up my mind what I want.

Amp's ...... I have 3, soon to be 4 (I have the 4th one, just not installed). They aren't hidden. Look at my old setup pic, amp's are on the upper deck/landing, and still are. Just for a different sub amp (more power) to replace the one that was in the middle.
