where have you guys mounted your subs in crew cab trucks?

I have seen the JL stealthbox that fits in the center console, and wow is it expensive, but does not really matter since no one seems to actually have them for pre-08 trucks.

Mine is 05.

Do the behind the rear seat boxes work out OK? what about power window? do they move the seat at all? don't want it to sit more upright than it already does.

I bought one of those behind the rear seat boxes off EBAY for my 10" subs. Sounds good, but wish I had 12"s sometimes.Real happy with it after I replaced the factory door speakers. I also mounted my amp there. It sits in a recess in the box right between both subs. The only catch is watch the airspace requirement for the subs. Some need more than these boxes can provide.

I put one of these behind the seat.

KICKER TC10 10" LOADED TRUCK SUB BOX 150W 2 OHM SUBWOOFER ENCLOSURE TC102 NEW - Newegg.com

It works great with a 250 w amp for most music. Not going to boom like a 12 but it definitely adds some good low end. I also replaced all of the OEM speakers with pioneers and it has really helped the sound. The prior owner had already cut the carpet so I didn't have to worry about that.

How much cutting is involved? Can you see those areas with the seat in place?

And do they interfere with the power sliding rear window?

I certainly like the price of this option better.

The cut piece of carpet is only visible when the seat is down, and the sub is out. It's probably a piece of carpet 2 feet wide and 18" high from the floor board.

I bought a pretty cheap amp from Wally world and it works fine for my purposes. All told it was like $180 for the sub and amp, the wiring was luckily already in there as well but this can be done easily for $15-$20 in wire and fuses, etc.

There is no interference with the window.

I bought a Kicker box and Kicker competition shallow mount from crutchfield. Fits awesome and sounds like I have two 12's in there. I'll get a pic in the morning for ya.

EDIT: I didn't go with the console/ middle seat sub location because I don't want my arm going to sleep sitting on the console or to feel that direct vibration with it so close. The boxes for no problem around the power window stuff.

Under the rear seat or where? This one fits right behind the seat with out modifying anything or losing any room. If u wanna put it under the rear seat there ain't much room for subs and an enclosure u less you go with numerous 6-8 inch subs or something.
