    So, Im just not getting the sound i'd want out of this shallow mount. I have a really good amp to push this sub too, just am use to the sound of a full sub. Any ideas of how to or if its even possible to get a full size sub behind one of the seats? if so- any ideas of where to find a small box that is for more than a shallow mount?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Well the question is how much room do you have behind the seat?

    the mounting depth for most 10" Subs is between 6" and 8" depending what class your looking for.

    You might be able to squish an entry level Sub back there I'm sure it's not going to hit much harder then a shallow mount Sub.

    Question what is your setup right now?

    Well if you really want high SPL's you could always build a box to spec with 2 12's put it in the back of the truck and vent it into the cab. That's if you want to go over board. I f you don't want to go that route check the space you have behind the seat to see if you could even fit a full sized sub behind it.

    Also do you have a bench or bucket seats? if you have bucket seats you could build a center console enclosure with 1 10" that should hit pretty hard.

    all & all you have options it all dependents on your skills and the money you want to spend.

    You know what they say you get what you pay for

    that is true, i think i would rather keep my speakers inside the cab. well... i guess all i can do is see if i can get a sub back there, which i am positive i can. im only 5'7 so im not a whole lot of person, lol. the bucket seats make it pretty adjustable, so i guess it would be a matter of finding someoine who makes custom sub enclosures or something. would def pay for that-

    Try contacting Mr Marv I'm sure he can build you something.

    Call Marv, he'll tell you what can fit.

    FWIW, I'm waiting on a box he built me to fit a full size IDQ10v3. Somewhere around the neighborhood of 5 3/8" mounting depth. But, it's not pole vented, so it can sit on the back wall if it has too. I think your max mounting depth is going to be right around that number.
