    I've got the same sub. It JUST fits. As for sound, hey it's JL. Enough said.

    Yes, fits between the seats (just). On top of that little cup holder/console thing, securely bolted for now. It's in a sealed 1" MDF box. Did you say 5 channel under the seat? I'd suggest before mounting it, make sure the seat slides back 'n forth. Mine didn't so it broke my heart but I took it back. Now running a 3 channel under the drivers & a two channel under the passenger seat. Just sayin' what worked for me.

    What do you mean by “fit”?

    Seats go up & down. Access to all belts. What are your concerns?

    Just curious cause my subs fit in my 2001 ext cab... but i can barely squeeze a small human back there now, but i don’t have much use for the backseat since I’m only 17.

    Thats what I was thinking of doing, just mounting it on that center console thing. By any chance can you send me a link of the box you bought?

    OK, I've got a '13, a 2nd Gen. Mine fits. It's not store bought. I don't even know if you can buy a box made from 1" MDF let alone one that fits a 2nd. Gen. I don't know about 1st or 3rd Gen. Trucks. What I can tell you is you won't find too many subs that will outperform that little JL. Very happy with this sub.

    The sub comes in a box with a very accurate template. What I did was experiment with placement before any MDF was even cut. I was surprised at how many options were really available once I had that template in hand. JL recommends a 1 cubic foot box if you're running a sealed design. That's pretty darn small so as to not overwhelm the entire back area. Mine fires downward & do buy the optional grill too. Cheap insurance against kids, dogs, guns, & fishing rods. Hope my "pretzel logic" helped. Please let me know how it worked out for you.
