Confused

Im tired of staring at the 2 Kicker L7 (square ones) 12's that have been sitting in my closet for over a year. Im gonna put them in the truck. Few questions first...
Is it possible to fit these two subs behind the seat? If not ill build my own custom box and sit it where the center console is.
I want a good sound system, do i need crossovers, capicitors, etc?

Please pass on any other helpful info you may have

another option is to raise the back seat up 3-4"....that is what I did on a buddies truck.

Then you can build a down firing box, and have a tidy place to put your amp too.

no way to fit them behind your seat. You should be ok without capicitors, what amp are you running? I ran a 1000 watt alpine amp without a cap and was fine, no dimming of the head lights!

Im not sure about raising the seat, never seen anyone do anything like that so idk how it would look. but tank always knows so idk.

I saw a guy that had subs in his bed in a simple box, but he had a camper shell. not sure how it sounded tho.

I agree with tank on the rear seat lift and custom box, I would recomend a cap around 1.5 farad or greater. What amp are you gonna run?

not sure on the amp yet. I need one that will push at least 1600 watts rms. the subs are 1400w peak a piece. So its gotta be big.

You mean lift the seat up 3-4" or scoot it forward 3-4"?

Here is what i did, One Kicker 12in L7 with a custom fiberglass box, it is the same size as the stock seat, and there is Softer padding then the seat had before.

You cant even tell there is a sub in the truck, the amp is a Kicker Mono 750RMS 1500MAX with a 2.0 Cap and 0 gauge wire from the battery to the distribution block, I also have a 4000watt Inverter under the back seat.

The Sub is Dual 4Ohm so it is 2Ohm when wired up, the amp is a 2Ohm Mono, the speaker and amp are ment for each other, max with max

The best part, THE SEAT IS STILL USEABLE, it flips up just like stock, Come on Lady's
