Puttin in sub/subs!

Okay been wanting to update stereo system in my pickup. All around speakers will come around later. As of right now just wanting to throw in a new head unit, a sub or two and amp to power them.

My only problem is, my truck is a extended cab and not full size. So what the hell are my options for putting a sub into our trucks??? The back seat underneath is only 7'' tall so i dont really see that being a option???

Any help on convient sub locations are very welcomed!!

If you want it to look clean a box under the seat with a shallow sub

Door speakers will be better than a sub. The stockers do not even compare to quality aftermarket speakers.

Goose, while i listen to country 75% of the time. All my buddies and girl listen to rap/rock all the time. An i too enjoy it. I think the extra thump from a sub would go along nice since the truck literally has no bass at all stock lol.

Aftermarket speakers put out a lot of bass,but its your call.

I like sound quality over bass. Stock speakers and a sub does not equal quality.

They way to do it is. A good head unit, some good speakers and a nice amp pushing those. Then a sub. I turn my sub down because I like to hear my music but a nice thump is nice

Yeah, I've seen the under seat boxes for the extended cabs. That's probably the best way to go. I want to replace all my factory speakers and headunit, and then later I will put in an amp and 2 under seat subs.

Also, I don't know what you guys are talking about. I've turned up the bass and a little bit of treble on my factory system and basses real good when blasting rap or rock. Still sounds clean too. Obviously, it might not compare to a Pioneer system or something, but for a 11 year old system, it goes pretty hard.

There are a few guys on here who have put a sub in their center bench seat. JL Audio makes one to fit there too.

When I had my 03' F150 ext cab, I had a custom made box from Probass (if I remember correctly) that fit under the back seat on the passenger side. My F150 had a hump in the center of the floor board and the box had a lip that sat up on top of that hump. The speaker I had was a 10" Crossfire and it pointed directly at the floor, down fire style. Had it about 3 days and looked it over and noticed the speaker was rubbing on the carpet, so I had to buy a grate to put over the speaker. Ran a 760 watt Pioneer amp under the back seat as well. Had it hooked up to my factory 6CD changer. It sounded great. Added plenty of tone to my sound system but wasn't over powering. Sounded best on country music honestly.

My buddy had an 05' reg cab F250 with a crew cab box behind the seats with a 10" Digital Design sub and it hit so hard it blew his cruise control buttons off his steering wheel one day. Mine was much more subtle, and I loved it.

Like I said, it doesn't compare to aftermarket stuff. The way I went was: 1) Door speakers 2) head unit and then a sub. If you are wanting the best sound with very little money then just do door speakers.
