    OK..... i've searched on this but can anyone tell me if it's physically possible to fit a pair of 8" powered bazooka tubes behind the rear seat with the dividers removed. I know that the 6"s fit but haven't heard anyone saying anything about the 8"s.

    I have looked at these also, but are they alittle over 8.5" dia?
    There is only about 7.5 7.75" at the most behind the seats at the BOTTOM of the seat,
    so I dont see any way one will fit.
    I search and searched for a powered sub to go in the Yota, the only one worth looking at is the Sound Ordnance one that Crutchfield sells.
    It gets fantastic reviews, but only goes down to 40Hz, I was afraid that just wouldnt give me the bottom end I wanted.
    I am going to make a custom box with a Pioneer Shallow mount 10"
    Here is a pic of the back with the plastics out, it gives you ALOT more storage space.

    Thanks for the input man. I already took out the plastic dividers a few days ago. I'm planning on keeping them out regardless of whether i put speakers back there or not. I'm gonna do the insulation and carpet on the back when i get a chance. I figured that the 8" tubes would be a tight fit because you know that things are always a little bit bigger than the specs make them out to be. I measured and i would say that there would be about 8" exactly at the bottom, but those things aren't perfectly round. I'm just trying to avoid building or buying a box.

    Even if you got it to fit there is much les space withthe seats folded. DO you want to lose the abilityto fold the seat forward and have to bolt it in in the uprght position? Just because you are too lazy to build yourself a box?

    Could always put some type of spacer for the seats so you can push them forward 3/4 inch. It would make your 7 and 3/4 space into a 8.5, but you would have to space all 12 bolts? Its been awhile since I did mine, so I kinda forgot.
