Yes you can get those under your seat, with an 8" deep box, but unless you are considering volume, they will sound like a boom box at 80HZ, and you'll get nothing audible under 40. They need much more volume. One would be better, for a cookbook design. You would need almost 3 cf (total) for 2 of them, and that would require seat removal I think. Would be a crying shame to do that to a Boston sub.

Masterp2 - I only have one boston Pro12 do you think i could do this without taking the seat out? I really do like the sub and hope I can use it but if the space constraints are too small you're right I'm not going to improperly mount a boston. I'll have to get some JL 10's or something if this doesn't work.

No. You need 8" of mtng depth, plus lumber thickness, plus 1" for seat clearance.

duckhunterintn, take and set the speakers magnet on a countertop and measure from the tops surface to the bottom of the speakers surround aka mounting surface, this will help with you mounting depth question to as how deep they are.

From what I've read on Cruchfield if you have a box that's not quite up to the exact deminsions you can use Poly fill http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Hu8NXvW...w.asp?I=027808 to make up for lost space. Maybe some of these audio pros can either confirm or deny that.

I plan on buying 1 Rockford 10" http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Hu8NXvW...sp?I=575P310D4 which requires 0.65 cu/ft (sealed box) and I plan on getting the box (single 10 with spacer) from the site I left a link for on my last post and use the poly fill so I think there are options if you can't get the box exact.

My box was a little short on air and I used a little poly-fill to help it out. I DIDN'T SPEND TEN BUCKS ON THAT STUFF!! Go to Wal-mart and get pillow stuffing, about $2, and pick up a twelve pack for the work ahead.

In my 98 Chevy crew cab I just let my 10" solo-baric Kicker sit on the back seat in a box, I have two 800 watt amps under the seat for the sub and they are mounted on a piece of partical board that I covered with black material. Behind the rear seat I mounted a 4 way amp, a cross over for the sub, a 10 disc changer and the power blocks. See photo. I didn't want to drill holes in my truck so I custom fabbed a "L" shaped mount out of the same partical board and covered that too, attached with staples. It fits perfect and it doesn't rattle or touch the back of the seat. If you realy want your sub or subs to thump, I would sugest a cross over. Foundryworks1 I like your set-up too. It looks clean.
