Who has what?

Looking to put some speakers in my 99 CCLB but not sure exactly what will fit behind the seat. What do you guys have for subs? Not sure if i need to put shallow mounts or if i can squeeze a couple normal subs back there? If possible, some of the Kicker square model solo barics would be my choice, but i know they are pretty deep. Lemme know what you got!

You wont be able to fit those l7's behind your seat.

I have 2 10" L7's in my truck.

Here's a picture of what I did

I went with one Kenwood Excellon shallow mount 12" in a ported box behind the rear seat. It sounds really good to me and it hits hard. I think I paid $90 for the sub on ebay and $40 for the box at Best Buy. I thought I had some install pics around here somewhere of when I did my whole truck.

As soon as I start working again I plan on ordering some JL audio 8w3v3 4ohm. Its the W3 series 4ohm 8inch sub. They fit under or behind the back seats easily. They run on a really low RMS so you don't need a big amp to push them, and from what I've heard in my buddies truck, and read from reviews, with the right amp or proper tuning, they can sound equivalent to some 12s and most 10s. They last a really long time, and sound so tight and so crisp its amazing. They don't sound sloppy or super loud. They also hit almost every frequency and tone.

The only problem is you gotta drop some money on them. I think they're running about $200 per sub right now. But you will not be disappointed at all. They fit anywhere real nice, and hit real hard. If you don't mind spending some money on some quality stuff, those are real nice to go with. I also think the Jl 10w0 subs fit behind the seat, but they are bottom of the line JL subs, still nice, but the 8w3 hits and sounds better. I'm stoked for mine, I'm just debating if I want to get 2 subs or 4.

Well, I deff know what I'm doing when it comes to sound.
I know how to do a little modifying also.

Quick example. Went to audio comp a few years back and had a mustang then.

Had 1 10" l7 kicker. The box I had built for it was prolly 3 1/2 to 4 feet in length and 2 feet wide, Ported of coarse.(Yea it was a big box for one sub)

I went up against people with 2 12's, 2 15's and 18's.

I think I came in 3rd place out of 100 competitors.

So you can imagine what 2 of these will sound like haha

Just keep in mind when your purchasing subs. You get what ya pay for. Look for the lowest ohm and find a dual cone sub not a single. Duals hit alot better and harder.

When getting an amp, see if you can find one that is one ohm capable.

I have 2 kicker subs with 2 kicker amps, I think I spent about $900 on the amps and subs and i built that box for about $200
(I pick the best for my truck!)

My subs are wired up in a parallel wiring which are both 1ohm capable.

Pushing about 1500watts of power.

Something else I like about my sub box is when removing the sub box or the subs from the truck, you MUST wear metal gloves, or your hand will be shredded.

Heres an updated picture of my subbox. I started to wrap/stretch the box with vinyl last night!

I enforced the underside of the box and inside the box with razor wire just for security purposes.

Will take more pics when I finish tonight!
