    I was wondering how deep of a sub everyone is fitting in there double cabs. If you could list the sub, mounting depth, and what box you have, that would be great.

    JL 13TW5 with a depth of 2.54" in a custom box made by me. Depending on thickness of MDF, sub excursion, and removing the seat back panel, around 6"-6.5" is right at the absolute limit. Might be able to squeeze another 1/2" if you use a fiber glass back. Do some digging the answers are out there.

    kicker cvx - i did 14 inches the bigger the louder :D
    -though a buddy of mine told me that installs them "for what ever size sub divide by 2 then + 2 = total what should be good
    Example 12" sub / 2 = 6 + 2 = 8 inches of mounting depth minimum
    .... checkup on http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/box_wizard.asp they can help you figure volume so you can know how big you want it with it the subs limit to sound good

    2 IDQ v3 10" subs... not enough airspace for 12" versions and I'm actually a little short on airspace since my amp is on my sub box.

    audio enhancers box mounting depth is 5-7/8" and i just traded in my fosgate p2's for JBL gto10's which are far better imho. they slam but are acoustical woofers so they sound "good" not just rattle your truck apart.
