sub placement?

I want to put subs in eventually. I am putting my strobes in next week so I need to figure out where I am gonna put the subs so I can mount the strobe boxes. Do the subs sound better under the rear seat firing down or behind the back seat firing forward? Its gonna be in a 05 crew cab. Thanks for the help!

I have my Rockford Fosgate p3 shallows behind my seat, its very very hard to fit subs esp. with a sub box under the seat, mine sounds great back behind the seat firing forward!

Thanks for the reply. I'm leaning toward the spl2k enclosure. Anybody have any experience with these?

Ya there are a few guys with the spl2k, I was going to go that route but then went with the JL stealthbox under my CC seats. I love it. Didnt lose and room behind the seat and the stealthbox sounds awesome. Only down side is the price of it. But for the ease of installation and sound I think its justified.

I went with the mtx thunderform box that goes behind the back seat and holds 1 10" sub. There is a place on ebay that has a deal with an upgraded thunder thin sub. I am really happy with it pleanty of bass. Im running it with a orion 600W sub amp. Same concept as the JL stealth box and a lot less expensive.

your gonna get better sound with a behind the seat seat up.. I worked for a local audio shop and did quite a few sound systems in f250s.. the only problem is that you have to remove the storage compartments and you have to cut the carpet on the rear wall.. but you cut it right below the seat line so when everything is in and the seat is up you cant even tell you cut anything

The previous owner had a JL Stealthbox center console with a 10w3 in it, but they took the sub out before they sold it. I talked to JL and they said a 10w6 will fit so I think I'm going to put a DD Audio 2510b in it instead.
