dual 12" sub enclosure. what subs to get?

just bought a dual 12" enclosure for behind my rear seat. I have 2 alpine type R's that I planned on installing, but sure enough they are too deep. I have a 600w alpine amp im going to be using. What type of shallow Subs are going to sound best in here?
what are you guys using?
Im looking to buy something online, so some suggestions would be helpful!
thanks guys

How much speaker is hanging out? Can you cut some circular rings to space it out to get magnet off the rear of the enclosure ?

I am a huge JL Audio fan myself, one thing you want to do is match the enclosure square footage to the speaker. You can alter it a bit with the use of moly foam pillow stuffing to make up for enclosures that are under sized. It's harder to correct when box exceeds the square footage of the woofer not too likely going to be the case here.

jl's are nice and $$$

I went with a Shallow 12" Rockford on recommendation from the box builder(ported)

and I run a full size 10" in a sealed box
both behind the seat
so far I have really pushed the 12" with no issues
