Question Where to mount a sub?

Ok so in my ranger i had a 12" rockford behind my driver's seat. It didn't bother me cause no one could sit in the back seat anyways, but with my OBS I can't put it under the back seat A because they don't make a small enough box to fit under it and B when I fold my seat over it'd hit it. So for you that have subs in your truck (preferbly 12s) can you tell me how you have them mounted but still being able to use your back seat to its full ability. A pic would help much, thanks

I have thought long and hard on this for my x-cab. Get a sub that requires very little air space and build a custom box to fit on the floor in the back center.

I've had one of these in for about 4 months. Fits behind the back seat with the seat all the way back. It isn't gonna vibrate the rearview mirror like the 12's you want but it does a good job. I think that I'll add another one soon. With two it'll be plenty for me. They're easy, sound good and fit.

I built this for mine. Truck didn't have a 3rd seat in it, so i decided to build a console/sub box. I got a 12 in the back of it.
