    Hey guys I have been looking around and can not find a behind the seat sub box for my 1st gen double cab Tacoma prerunner. I have found plenty for the xtra cab but none prefabed for the 4 door. Any websites I should check out to buy from?

    I have the kicker also under the drivers seat. Very impressive for what it is. The only box that is available premade is for 2 8". It takes up the whole area from side to side behind seat. There's a few custom boxes with a single 10 or 12 but they're custom made.

    I have a custom behind the rear seat for my double cab that fits a shallow 10” subwoofer. It’s made by a guy that lots of folks here on the forum have used, I have his contact information if you are interested, just shoot me a PM if you want to reach out to him for more information. It’s a tight fit, and I did modify the back of the seat a little bit, but it’s really nice and stealthy and sounds great.

    I was looking into this sub just the other day. I didn't want to take up space in the back. Got one amp under the passenger seat, was going to put this under the drivers. You have good results? Just need a little more in the bass department.

    If you have a single cab I run a 10” kicker behind my bench seat, haha. I’m sure an 8” would work fine if your not really looking to bump

    Extended cab. I run two 12" in my car so I'm prepared for the major difference in sound lol.

    That's because they don't really exist. There just isn't space back there.

    I had to make my own box, using an OLD 10" sub with a tiny magnet. I built my box as large as physically possible, and even cut out the upholstery liner at teh back of the cab for that extra bit of clearance. And even then, I had to router out the back of the box to fit the magnet. I didn't even put carpet on the box. It's large enough that you can't even fold the seat down...

    I'm sure an 8" sub would fit a lot better, but the box would more than likely end up the same size.

    Get one that goes under the seat.

    Yes, absolutely. I think these Kicker underseat woofers are awesome upgrades.

    Some online reviews say the hideaway doesnt last long. Speaker blows out quick. Would you say user error?

    *knocks on wood* all three of mine have performed flawlessly. Oldest unit is going three years now. (And that unit I bought as a refurb off Amazon)

    I was looking it grabbing a refurb as well and getting the cheap 3 year protection warranty. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being a 10inch sub in a ported box, what would you rate the kicker at for thumpability. I dont want a 10. More like a 6 or 7

    I can’t speak for this one in particular but my Sound Ordinance (Crutchfield Private label) has been going strong for years.

    Hmm, while I completely understand your scaler, it is hard to practically quantify.

    A 10” sub box moves a lot more air and has quite a bit of sound “mass”.

    The Kicker can definitely be dialed up to thump, but it won’t be at that same “mass” level of a amplified, dedicated sub box.

    I’m pretty certain the Kicker will satisfy your bass needs without being obnoxious. It also features a remote bass control that allows you to dial in or out bass as needed. I usually adjust mine between 50-75% for a music preference that alternates between rock and electronic music.

    Hope this helps!

    These underseat power subs do not thump or boom. They fill in the low end nicely for a more rounded/full sound. For the price it really is a nice addition to the sound system.
