I have a jl stealth box with 2 jl 12s under the back seat.. Not storage but definitely worth it. If it's in your budget, go for it and use bed storage instead.

I bought the JL Stealthbox with 8" down firing sub. Can you see it? Haha - I love this bad boy! Don't need to blow up anyone's ears. Sounds great, and smooth! Affixed amp to back wall of cab. You prolly already know the BCM is ground controlled; knowing this I added a turn on switch to the center console.

Nice install bat wolf I like how the rear wall was used for amp mounting. Any issues mounting the amp there?

None at all. I put a layer of dynamat on the back cab wall, then placed the amp and marked the holes. I put fat rubber grommets in the holes, mounted the amp with hardware and loctite, then applied silicon to prevent leaks at the screw holes. Oh and I sealed off the passenger side cab vent since it's above the amp as I didnt want to worry about moisture from it either.

This is a Sound Ordanance powered 8" sub. Should fit under your passenger seat. Only $199. I have a sound ordnance amp for a 10" Pioneer shallow sub that fits under 1/3 of my back seat. According to Crutchfield, Sound Ordnance was started by several guys that worked for Pioneer and felt they could develop a superior product at a fraction of the cost.

I know it's not top of the line brand name, but I've got nothing but good things to say about my amp and it fits the description of what your looking for without tons of medication and spending a small fortune.

Thats Sound Ordnance is awesome, exactly what I was lookin for. If I can get it to fit under the passenger seat that'd be great.

Sounds good! Glad I could help. Just double check the measurements before ordering.
