Best subs for 04 f250 crew cab?

What are the best shallow mount subs for behind for the seat of a 04 f250?

I am looking at jls, but I don't know which ones to get....I know I want shallow mounts. I am thinking of getting 3 12" subs, and a truck box to put behind the seat.

Just want someone to point in the right direction on how they would work like that.

JL makes a 13tw5, but you're not gonna get 3 of them, or likely even 2 of them behind the seat with the right amount of air space.

They also make a 12" tw3, but it's not as shallow as the w5 and will have less output/power handling. Again, good luck getting 3 of them back there with the right amount of air space. I suppose it's possible if you run sealed, but there again, you sacrifice output.

JL makes a stealth box with one ported 13tw5 that fits perfectly under the rear seat. It's "okay" output, but not near enough for me, personally. I had a custom ported enclosure made to replace my entire center console/jump seat and it houses a ported Type R 15.

Well...from sonic electronix I found a box made for 3 shallow mount subs, that fits right behind the rear seat. The box is 75$. And he said he will give me 3 12" kicker shallow mount subs for 120$ each, or 3 rockford and fosgate shallow mount subs for 60$ each.

I'm thinking if I get that box, and 3 12" kickers, I should be hittin kinda hard right?

I listen to everything really. But mainly country/r&b/rap

It's all relative, but that wouldn't hit all that hard compared to a traditional enclosure with a full sized sub and plenty of power. But it may be enough for your taste. Check the specs on each sub for air space requirements and compare that to the box. Remember to subtract the displacement of the subs when figuring the volume of the box. It may sound alright. Just don't make the mistake of cramming any sub into any box. It isn't that simple.

I would look at the Sundown Audio SD-2. They are a bigger name in the car audio competition world and if you want something that will hit, they will do it better than JL.
