Move rear seat forward

Not sure how everyone else is fitting subs in their trucks... I threw the eBay box in with two image dynamics 8" woofers and the seat goes in but my woofers hit the back of the seat while playing producing a popping noise. How do I move the seat forward? anyone have any pics?

I see people getting 3/4" which should be enough to clear my subs but the seat rails don't seem to have more than .5" of room to drill toward the back on the flat part of the bracket. Are you just putting washers between the bracket and the front bolt on the seat?

I have one 12 in an eBay box. I didn't move the seat at all. I had to trim that black plastic box vent deal and the carpet material on that wall under the rear window. I put a speaker grill on my sub, protects the sub & looks cool too

most boxes have you take or cut the carpet out around the box and remove the vent and cover it with something water proof ,

another thing you can do is put a grill on it the grill will keep the carpet from the seat back away from the speaker

i also read somewhere that you can flip the brackets on the seat and it will move forward 1 to 2 inches

i removed the carpet and vent and bought grills to solve the problem rather than moving the seat!
