subwoofer and amp combo

So I am thinking I would like to have a sub in my truck. I know nothing about sound systems and was wondering if anyone knew of a good kit that comes with everything needed and that will fit in a regular cab truck. I don't need anything super crazy just something to add to the upgraded speakers and stereo. Thank you for your time.

probably want to let the guys know if your HU has sub outputs
or if your going to be using speaker lead inputs

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

It says it has 1 preout for subwoofer control. The stereo is Alpine CDE-122, don't know if that helps.

that is helpful

where are you wanting the sub ?
center console under rear seat ? behind rear seat? ( not sure those are all options on your cab but lets start with the wish list LOL)

I would like for it to be behind the seat because it's a manual so there's no room anywhere else really. It's a regular cab with a bench seat.

You want bass or better sound?
What's the budget, and are you ready to lose leg room?

The speakers I have now sound good but they lack the umph I'm looking for if that makes any sense. I want something that'll bump a little and make it sound a little better too. I wouldn't want to spend anymore than like 600 or 700 bucks. Idk if that's too low or not really. I'd be alright with a little less.

That should be plenty IMO... since you are pleased with the sound now you'll just need an amp and a wedge box.
You could go 1 or 2 tens or even twelves.
The problem with a little bass turns into a hunt for more.

My brother had a 1-8" solar baric and a 450w amp in his extended cab Tacoma and it was more than enough. With an 8" sub you all lose some of the low low bass but you will have the higher frequency bass the 12" will not have. If you want lots if bass I recommend two 12's or three 10's. You should have plenty of room for some shallow mounts.
