    Hey guys I nam doing a stereo upgrade and looking for some ideas for subs for my 03 double cab behind the seat. any one has any experience with any thing other than 8" behind the seat? send me some pics so i can get some good ideas this one has really stumped me. I have personally never had any sub smaller than a 10" and am not sure if 8"s will give me the sound I am looking for.I have a few options i have been looking at the JL TW5 or the JL 8W1V2s the Sound stream Stealth-13 the Kicker CompVT8s or maybe the Alpine Type R any suggestions or pics would be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance

    I can't relate, I jammed two 6" Bazooka Tubes behind the seats in my 07 DC.
    had to be creative....:rolleyes:

    The sound is unreal...:eek: my 2 6" tubes are powered by a 250W Kenwood Amp Through a Kicker Crossover.:cool:
    I think you would have trouble fitting an 8" tube back there...
    I took a weekend to carefully alter the "behind the seat" plastic to fit the tubes. I had to dremmel off 4 of the mounts on the rear wall to squeeze them in.
