    A sealed box doesnt need as much airspace so that might be a plus. Sealed will leave u with more sound quality than anything. If you go ported you wont have as much sound quality, but you will have a higher spl. The box will need more airspace and it doesnt sound like you have much room for a big(ger) box, so thats a negative and prolly pretty much out of the story. It will be kinda hard to fit those subs behind your seats if you have a single cab.

    Is it a bench or two bucket seats? If its a bench it doesnt matter where you put them but if there buckets and you put them behind the driver seat youll prolly have to put the seat up closer and your knees will be on the steering wheel. So you might take that into consideration.

    yeah i have a box in now behind driver seat and my knees are on the steering wheel andthe bad thing is that is it a 5 speed so it makes it a litlle hard. I cant put it behind the passengers seat beacause it has the jack holder.

    Yeah id just slam em both behind the passenger. Do you have a center console or like an arm rest in the center. Cause you could rip that out and make a custom enclosure in that area.
