Here is a under seat installation of a 10" sub, 4 channel amp, and crossover/equalizer in my truck. I thought some might be interested, mainly as to how much could be fitted under the small seat.

If anyone is going to try this, be aware that I had to strip the seat and build internal brackets to mount the amp and eq too.

And yes, I know its all dirty. I have a limestone driveway and haven't cleaned my truck up yet.

Its a standard Pioneer sub. I looked at some subs that were too deep or had magnet structures that were too large. I had planned to use a Pioneer or JL from the start, they have excellent output with lower power.

That box is a up-fire, with woofer recess. Probox makes both. I picked that one up used from a local audio shop for $60, less than half price.

I really like the cross-over and amp install, but I want something that does not sit on the floor like that.  I need that space when the seat is up which is most of the time.
The doors are pretty fat in my F150...   wondering of there is someone who makes something plug and play for that?

Yeah Pioneers have a pretty high sensitivity level. Have one that I swear sounds better by itself than the two Memphis 12s I have now. But part of that may be my box for the Memphis isn't the right size. I only asked about the Low Profile sub, because I have two of those. And i could never get a good sound out of them even in the correct size enclosure. Im looking for a box I could use under my seat delete. And it looks like that box may work.  Wonder, Ponder

I had to add some poly-fil to get the sound where I wanted. At first, it was flat on low notes. The Audio Control EQX also helps getting the sound right.

I have heard that many low profile subs cant match the output of standard subs. Could be surface area or the fact that the flatter cone isn't as stiff.

That box looks odd when outside the truck. Its formed to the floor.

There are other options.

I have seen a few that add to or replace part of the console.

There is also some space behind the seat. I have seen people cut the trim panel and build amp racks back there. Maybe one or two compact subs could be fitted, like these:

I'll look into some options you're talking about.
Just seems the sound quality will be not so good with the inability to move air with such a flat box.
I don't need anything that rattles my shit...  but it's nice to have the  windows down, driving on the highway and still hear the music and feel the hit of the lows.

Oh yea. I've always been a fan of their cheaper subs like the W0s and W1s. Bad ass subs for the money and excellent output.

I have also had good luck with Infinity Kappas. Kickers sound good but need plenty of power.

Dana, I don't know if you can find anywhere to mount fit one, but these are awesome. I heard two of theme in a car and was flat out amazed at the sound from that small box. I mean like, dumbfounded.

Ran across this and thought I should update it.

Replaced the Pioneer sub with a Kicker Comp. A real Comp, not one of the re-badged Impulses that Walmart sells.

The Kicker doesn't have the overall output of the Pioneer, but is MUCH more stable on low notes. So much so, I was able to recover much of the output with the EQ while retaining the better low notes.

Also got some pics of the doors. Two way Rockford Fosgate 6X8s in each door along with RF tweets in the front.
