You can put shallow mount subs back there, but in doing so you loose the ability to lift the back seats up.

Or you can do this and still have use of the back seats.

And there's really nowhere to put an amp that it will get sufficient airflow, I reccomend running a 12v fan off the remote wire to keep it cool. Most electronic stores sell these

Will this fit under the seat of a quad cab?

i've always wondered about the quality of a sub like this that you can fit under the drivers or passenger seat

You might want to to call or check with Q Logic to see if it will fit with a Quad Cab.

Motorbreath..... The quality of the sub is good quality. I have had there boxes and speakers before and never had an issue.

If you just want a little 'deeper base those logic boxes will do the trick.. question is do you really need the full back seat? I have 2 12" back there and retained the single seat.. going to build a custom box soon.. but thats the main question.. do you need the seat?

That box will not work, it actually recesses into the storage compartment under the cc seat which the qc does not have

Well, yes, the whole thing is replaced, you no longer have a 'storage box' and you have to move the jack.. that is called a stealth box.. that is the only way your going to get subs in that truck that are at least half decent with out taking up seat space.. those little cheesy ones under the seat will not do much good.


Or you can just get some nice 6x9's back there or 8'' depending if you want/willing to do some custom work and cutting on the rear stage... seal it up to get a nice response. I've already found out by my rear fill's in the rear, with out sealing it up back there its a little pitchy in some of the tones
