Help Me Pick My Set Up

So I am looking to buy a new HU, amp, and sub soon and was wondering what each person preferred. Looking for a single din setup with between 500-1000 watt rms subwoofer/dedicated amp combo. I am planning to set this up behind the back seats in a 2011 double cab with the JBL system. Loss of storage isn't a problem. Also, I heard that a new HU is needed to upgrade the subwoofer on the JBL systems, is this true? Feel free to ask any questions, too.

P.S. Please include anything else I might need to power a system like this, new battery/Big 3, etc.

Could somebody at least give me a list of subwoofers that will fit behind the rear seats in a double cab?

JL 13tw5,or image dynamics id 10, or idq 10 would be my recommendations. There are several different amps that you could use depending on what sub you end up running.
No electrical modifications should be necessary with a 1000 watt system.

I wish there was a way to use Fi Audio subs, http://www.ficaraudio.com/sess/utn15...iew.shopscript.

That thing is a work of art

IIRC you need a mounting depth of 6in or less for the sub to have enough clearance behind the seat. That sub would be a little to deep.

Would I be able to make a box that satisfies the air requirements for 2?

Should be able to make a box that will fit 2. A guy by the name of Mr. Marv builds custom boxes and could build you whatever you wanted. Pm him and he can help you out.

This should get the job done?

It meets the airspace requirements, and at a good price.
