    Default Sub to fit under my '04?

    I have a 2004 with the Extended cab..
    Just wondering what types of subwoofers and boxes I can fit under my rear seats?

    I have a $250 gift card to Best Buy and would like to keep it all there.. I already have a Kenwood amp that should be plenty good for it, but can't find anything that will fit under my seat... Any ideas?
    I'm hoping to go with 10" or 12"..

    Do you want to put 1 sub or 2 under your seat? As for enclosures from Best Buy, they usually only stock generic boxes for car trunks in the store. You can see if they have any for your truck at Best Buy's website

    I got my box for a single 12" here:

    Best buy makes boxes for a reasonable price to go under the seat for either one or two subs, but for the subs they are kind of expensive on prices. But wherever you buy them you will have to get shallow mounts or find a sub with a smaller magnet to fit under the seat because the box at its shortest point will only be about 3.5-4 inches. What kenwood amp do you have? I have the 1800 watt for my 2 12's and it is awesome.

    i have the same year as you but just gmc and i ran two 10" pioneer shallow mounts with a 1000w amp and it sounds great! to me, 10" sound much cleaner than 12" in trucks. best buy does sell the boxes for your truck like this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Atrend+-...9&st=subwoofer enclosure&cp=1&lp=9

    but they don't sell the pioneers which i highly recommend. you can also try some rockford fosgate shallow mounts.

    They might have the Kenwood Shallow subs. Or you might be able to get Alpine Type S Subs from them. If you have the 1800 watt Kenwood amp that amp is good for about 250-300 Watts RMS to each sub so that would be fine...

    Yeah make sure the subs can handle the power of the amp. At 2 ohms the kenwood 1800w puts out 450 rms

    well one thing is for sure that your going to be able to put a ported box unless u dont want to have your seats down and the other thing too is that your going to have to get shallow mount subs.. one note about putting the box under neath the seat is that if your going to be listening to the radio loud then you should put up your seat because i didnt know but it would get hotter than usual and then it'll just shut down on me so yea just that in note.
