    Good sub for small space?

    I have a 1998 Ford F-150 single cab. There is very limited space behind the back seat. I'm just looking for something small and affordable to give some bass to my current set-up. Any ideas of a sub and amp combo? I'm thinkin two 8's? Wanting to order something by tomorrow. Thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty tall so I can't sacrifice leg room, With the seat all the way back I got 8" bottom length, 13" height and about 4" up top.

    Just going for sq man, my daily driver, just wanted a little more bump. I was going to try and do ported? May have to go with a sealed enclosure since space is an issue.

    I would try a 10" type R, you can fit it depth and height wise based on your pic.

    Depending on how much width youve got to get some volume, Id port it.

    $100 and sound pretty **** good with a little thump

    The type R requires 6.8-7 inch mounting depth. According to his drawring he only has 6.5 inches of airspace at the bottom. Even with the box being at that angle, I doubt it would fit.

    I agree with multiple E8's for his space. You cant beat that price at $50 a pop.

    2 E8s from the classifieds (21 left last check) http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=415092

    and this amp http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductC...&idproduct=383 (300x2 at 4 ohms)

    I did run 2 12" JL w3v1s behind the seat of my 98 F150 reg cab, but I had to move the seat a touch forward Sounded great. BTW, I did down firing... I'd recommend the same with the 8s
