I got 2 10s under the seat of my ext cab and they hit and sound really good. If you really want to "bump" haha go with the 12s but 10s would be enough

Build a box for behind the rear seat. Or buy the one that a site sponsor on here makes. I built my own for two 10's behind my seat and it hits very well.

Imo one good 12 in a nicely built box behind the center console will sound great, thats what im running and it pounds pretty hard.

eventually id like to get to slim 12s to go behind the rear seat so i have more room to sit in my truck

I've got a Stereo Integrity BM MKIII behind the rear seat. 12" sub that only needs .5 ft^3 air space and 3.5" mounting depth...plus it sounds great! You can check them out at Stereo Integrity | Home

I have two JL Audio 10s under my back seat and I love them. They are W0s and they pound pretty good. I usually keep them turned down a little or else its almost too loud.

Honestly with the room that's available behind the seat of a crewcab truck, the best option (read: hardest hitting) is going to be the largest slim-line sub you can find. In only having so much mounting depth - and limited cone excursion - to work with, you're going to need to get as much cone area in there as possible to get any output out of the system.

If I was doing another install in a CC truck and was keeping the back set, I'd proibably end up using the 12"+ JL Audio slim-lines, build a box behind the rear seat, and move the rear seat as far forward on the brackets as possible; basically you unbolt the seat from the brackets and drill new holes - you should be able to move the seat forward about 2" which gives you a bigger box

But it all depends on what you consider "enough". Me, I wouldn't even look at a crewcab because there's not enough room for speakers

Built this for my rig. It's an 8" Rockford but could easily make one for a 10" out of fiberglass.
