How much speaker could I fit in rear doors 99 supercab?

Please forgive if this is in the wrong section...

But, I have this Early 99 supercab 7.3 4x4 and wanted to figure out how to make the music sound "better" and I see from research that no real space exists for subs under or behind the rear seat, and nothing exists on the aftermarket other than a rear console.

So, I could either spend money and try to shove something small under there and get "so-so" performance or give up seating/storage space for a bazooka tube or something. I dont really do hiphop and just want to warm up some modern country, so I dont need much.

Anyway that got me to thinking about those small rear doors that currently have some 6x8 Mazda speakers for rear fill and I have seen where guys have over-sized front door speakers in the past so could I use the rear doors for some smaller subs, I mean that window does not roll down and its a big space right? Could I just use some 6x9 or round 8" subs?

Has anyone seen this done? Got pics? Could I use a pair and then line the inside with dynamat and/or polyfill to get a decent lower frequency to make accurate lower bass? Some free air subs could do a fair job I'm thinkin? Thoughts?

6x8's fit n the front and rear doors.
i have pioneers with a sony deck and it sounds 100 times better than my dads stock radio.

and yes dynamat or insulating the cab helps a ton. will make your current sound system sound much better.

but a sub would probably be cheaper.

But, I was thinking of putting subs in the doors...have you seen anyone cut out more metal for an 8" that still fits/hides behind the door cover?

better sound

I have a 2002 crew cab. I had a custom ported sub box built to go behind the backseat that houses 2-10" subs. I also mounted 2 1200wamps under the seat, had to raise them off the floor so i drilled out the firing pin on some .45cal shell casings and screwed them to the floor. I replaced the factory rear speakers with pioneer 5x7's. in the front doors i replaed factory with very nice ARC Audio 5.25 components with the tweeters mounted high on the A post. topped it off with a nice Pioneer APP head unit! now this will cost around $3000 IF you buy all new equipment, but if you know some guys that are into stereos, you can get into it for less than $1200-$1500. Also, any kind of noise dampening will help! I used Hushmat, installed myself for around$325 for all 4 doors and the back wall, doors being lined inside and outside panel. I just may know where you can get a nice unit and some components for a good deal!

We'll, there really is no comparison between a crew cab door and a supercab door, and building a box just ain't gonna happen. I either turn these doors with non-roll down windows into infinite baffle cabinets or buy a cheap tube and be done with it. I was just wanting to know if anyone had already invented this wheel before that could share results.

Shallow mount sub's only need 4" from what I read, but I have never used any.

you know what a 4 inch sub might fit. of course it would need to be custom mounted but that wouldnt be a big problem.

Put shallows in there, dynomat it up and seal all the holes in the panel except the ones your door clips down on. Amplify them using the correct amp and obviously get a deck that has subwoofer preouts(rca). Had been done, just takes time
