Behind The Seat Subwoofer Suggestions

I have a 2006 crew cad w/o power rear window and I am wanting to install a sub woofer behind the rear seat. Can anyone suggest a pre-made enclosure that fits, preferably with a built in amp?

almost any deck will work with the wheel controls using an adapter search axxess or PAC

a box with a built in amp I have not seen commercially available but behind the seat boxes are just an ebay search away or spl2k does ported

I've been looking up some options and came across this one. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_108BASS...tml?c=3&tp=114

Reviews are pretty good. Price is good at $200.

That's a turd. The problem with a lot of "good" reviews is that the reviewers just don't know any better. This is especially true with car audio.

You'll be better off using a separate amplifier. Plenty of good brands. Find a reputable car audio shop or spend an hour or two checking out some of the car audio boards.

I like JL and Alpine, but there are cheaper options that will be okay, too.

the basslink might be ok for a rental truck at best IMHO

the box Blackranch has is more what u want with a separate amp you don't need 3 speakers but that is a cool setup

I run 2 interlocking boxes with a 12 and a 10 one ported one not and separate amps to cover more sound spectrum( if you will ?)
and the amps under the single folding rear seat

Blackranch you can see the impression on the seat back it sure looks like that is impeding the woofer ? I might get some grills ??

But I'm not looking for anything to hit hard or run DB drags. I did that enough in my youth, with my WRX and slammed dakota. Or the custom boxes we use to build for friends vehicles. Like 8 10" w7s in a xcab ranger.
I don't want the whole section behind my rear seats taken up. I store useful tool back there that I may need (recovery straps, tie downs, flares, and some tools and spare needings for my pyrotechnics) I just want a little something to complete my audio and make everything sound better.

Otherwise sure, I could fit 3 JL 12s back there in a custom box with 2 1200w amps under the seat. (I use that cargo space as well)

I don't think anyone was suggesting anything close to that extreme. There's a huge difference between what you're talking about now vs that crappy Basslink thing. Just because you don't want filet mignon doesn't mean you should settle for Ramen noodles.

Or to put it another way... Just because you don't ever plan to go 180 mph in your truck doesn't mean that you should put $50 no-name tires on it.

I'm just looking to save some space as it seems the OP, might have been as well, since he asked about premade enclosure and built in amp. I guess I could build a small box an mount the amp above it.

Just was hoping for simple s
