    If you can fit a normal sub then do it. No debates, shallows don't have the travel which in turn means they don't move the air that a normal sub can.

    What do you listen to? 10's are a bit tighter and 12's will be a deeper sound. It's all up to you and what room you have in your truck

    For rock I'd tend toward 10's. For rap I'd tend toward 12's.

    Enkie and surreal just nailed it...generally for a wide range of music types I would go with a pair of tens in a sealed box for musical quality. Mind what Heater mentioned though, he is right when he says subs are more prone to over excursion in tight, sealed boxes...tuning will become even more so important.

    Well, I actually said that speakers in a PORTED enclosure are more prone to over-excursion.

    If you think you may be running at the top end of what the sub allows, I know that Kicker calls out for a decrease in cubic feet for the sealed enclosure from specifications. They just recommend making it less, they don't give you a number. This would make sense and be in line with what I said regarding the unsealed enclosure and more excursion on high power.

    Whether you are going to do a sealed box or a ported enclosure, please obtain the technical specifications for the sub woofer in question and make sure you do the correct calculations for both the sealed enclosure and when you do the ported make sure the port dimensions are accurate for what the manufacturer calls out. If you do this, as long as you do not exceed the max wattage limits for the design, everything should work fine. Call or email tech support if any questions. Kicker has very good tech support.
