Extended cab subwoofer

I know this has probably been covered on here before but I couldnt find an exact answer. I want to install a single ten or twelve inch sub. but I dont want to lose all of the under seat space. Is there a decent way to only put it under the drivers side rear? Or is the best option to put one under the front middle seat? Any experience with this setup?

If you dont want to lose space in the back the front middle jump seat is the way to go. I have made one that fits under the center seat. It only raised the seat about 2 inches. It's specifically made for a speaker needing .5cu/ft air space. I will have pics tomorrow. I also have 2 more almost made up.

I used to think high mileage was a bad thing, but its a badge of honor on my F250 Powerstroke.

yeah I'd like to see some pics if you have em. I have felt around under my middle seat and it just doesn't seem like theres much room for a sub but I haven't removed anything either. It seems like a great place to put a sub though.

That is what I am shooting for... I guess you go a little bigger than a half cube. I have been waiting for a new Stereo Integrity MKIV 12 inch sub to finnally go into production. It has small mounting depth and only needs .5cu/ft airspace.

I put mine in between the center console and the rear seat...Lost one spot for someone to sit but for me it wasnt a big deal as normally the dog is the only one in the back seat lol

I made one similar to the box above, but I deleted the brackets so that I had adequit air space and didn't raise the seat at all.
It's therefore not bolted down as good as stock, so not exactly street legal for someone to sit there...

Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.
