    So, I've got my components in and my head unit (Alpine iDA-X200) and waiting for two more 6.5's to put in the rear. Now I'm looking at mounting options for a sub. This is the thing...everyone I've asked about it says that only a shallow mount sub will properly be able to fit behind the seat in a shallow mount box. I understand that but I've got a 10inch JL and a 12inch JL that are not shallow mount and I'm thinking there must be some way to mount a sub with regular average mounting depth without going down the shallow mount route. It would save me so much money as I'm about to drop a hefty amount of cash on a 5-channel amp. Anybody have any suggestions ? Is it possible ? Pictures would really help me out. Thanks guys.

Sport wheels added.
    just depends on what you are willing to sacrifice to get that deeper sub in an enclosure. Can you get a normal sub to fit? Sure...but what are you wiling to give up to get it?

    If you need all your space for your seats to move back...you'll be losing leg room. If you don't, then you'll be giving up space behind the seat due to the deeper enclosure to house the normal sub.

    I was able to get a 10" Rockford behind the seat of an '82 regular cab. The seat had to be fully forward, and it barely wedged in there. I'm not saying it sounded good, but it worked.

    Sorry no pic, but i was able to get a 10" JL into a ported box and not give up any leg room for my '99 regular cab.....i got it professionally installed and they had to remove the jack and take up the whole back, but it slams pretty hard.
