    20" rims, pioneer 4200 DVD, 2- 11" screens in head rest, 2 jl 12w1s, jl 1000/1 for subs jl 300/4 for highs. Alpine 6 1/2" components in front and Alpine 3 way 6 1/2" in back. Also bunch of other stuff to come as time permits.
    Has anyone used the jl audio shallow mounts yet? If so how are they and do you have pics. I would love to know if the shallow 13" would work. I have three shallow mount punch 10's right now in my 06 double cab. I really dont care for the sound to much looking for a new setup to try.

    Best sounding shallow mount sub I have ever used and if you really want to get serious there is enough room for 2 of them back there! :eek: :D I haven't quite finished the tutorial below yet but I'll be posting a more descriptive review of the sub as soon as I can (I also built 13TW5 enclosures for several other members here and hopefully they will post up their reviews as well)

    i have a shallow mount 10'' jl and it sounds really good considerin the box is really small, it hits hard and alot of bass. Its 5'' wide on top and 8 1/2'' wide on bottom..i put it between seats and still have enough room for 2 people to sit in the back.

    I believe he was referring to the TW5 "thin line" which is quite different than the typical "shallow" sub. The 13.5" is the only size available right now and it has a 2.5" mounting depth (yes two point five inches :eek:) with an enclosure requirement of only .8ft^3 so it can fit darn near anywhere. :)

    We have sold several of the TW5 subs, i agree, best sounding shallow sub i have heard. They will fit in alot of tight spaces. They can also handle alot of power. Can't wait for the 12" to come out. We were hoping for a 10" but JL says for now, not happening.
