put a single sub in the center in the back n ull b able to have both seats just not alot of leg room or build a custom center console with the sub facing rear and itll work out even better then just mount amp under seat or on back wall

since i wana have space in the back for passengers what size speakers and brand do you recommend for me to install in the back and in the doors that is inexpensive yet will sound decent.

Look up JL Audio Stealthbox s10



And for speakers the best way to find out what sounds the best is go to a "cartunes" or any car audio shop and they'll have a room where you can hear a bunch of different speakers, dont worry about brands. Just close your eyes and whatever sounds the best, do it. But ive got alpines from craigslist and im happy with how they sound though.

this is what i did, its a custom box with a 12" alpine type r. ive changed the amp since then but you get the idea. i love it
! someone can sit in the back on the jump seat and have a comfortable amount of leg room.

I'm going to start building a benchseat/sub box/tool storage set up for my first gen this weekend, putting 2 12"s in so it might be a bit tall. Should have pics on Sunday.

yea i used google sketch up to design it and im sure they have some kind of area calculator. i did the math but i forgot how to do it all. one 12 should be fine, i have that type r in sealed box and it hits pretty damn hard for being under powered. plenty for an xcab

this is what i did... i just but as close to the third door as possible, lifted and put the amps on the floor underneath. my wife and kids still have room to sit in the jump seat, they just have to step over the amps.

2 boston acoustics g312s, boston acoustics gta-800m, gta-504 amps

if you get a really nice 10 inch sub it will sound really good and not take allot of room away you can mount it on the back wall up high to where the very top of it is covering the window by an inch or two. there would be good legroom

Front box will have the subs, rear box will be for the amps and storage for tools, it's a bit tall for a seat but won't be too bad for short trips. I might cover it with gray tweed.
