I got kicker shallow mounts and they sound good, also about 4yrs old and are starting to crack around the rubber(still sound good), ill be getting type r's next once the kickers fall apart.. Jl is decent too I had a 12w6 and it lasted and sounded good, I've had the lower end jl crap (w3) and it blows up fast, I'm not sure how there shallow stuff is but I'm not willing to spend the $ to find out when I know the alpines are good

sonicelectronix is usually better then ebay. i got a hook up locally easier to deal with.
last time got pdx1000.1 for 200 and type X for 250 so I'm hoping for a similar type deal

the jl13w5 is super sexy but very pricey, the alpine flat r's sound decent i did 2 in duramax on a mrpm1000 and it was loud but a little muddy for my liking... the kicker flats perform extremely well at a cheap price and surprisingly the kenwood excelon flat subs rock and arent too crazy priced either... i can get any of the subs listed above at a killer deal and can build boxes plus install if anyone is interested been working in the car audio industry for almost 6 years... just shoot me a pm if u need anything and ill get you a price

U ever install full size 10" under the back seat of newer ram crew? A buddy did it to his but the cover pushes against the seat and the seat feels harder ... Would rather go with full size subs .. My pm doesn't work for a while now

you can do 12's or 10's under the back seat of a crew cab ram theres tons of room when done properly... this is a 2012 i just did for a friend, 2 12" kickers in a fiberglass box off of a 1000watt rms kicker amp, absolutely hammered and sounded awesome

too bad they're firing the wrong way.

i want a sub put into my 2011 f150 supercrew under the passenger side rear seat where the sub from factory is located. i wouldnt mind getting one of those shallow mount subs as long as they hit nice. not looking at doing anything crazy for system, just need some nice bass inside the cab and really dont want to loose all that space underneath the seats. good for dog and groceries.
