If you want it hidden (like I do) You are pretty much limited to 4 places to put it. Under the seats in a custom downward firing encloser. Under a custom center console. In the rear side panels. Or in the rear cargo door(s). Also you are pretty much limited to 10" and must be shollow mount from the enclosures/kits I've seen online. The setup I'm going for is a dual subs in the rear cargo doors inside some Q-custome factory style panels, with a 1k watt 5ch amp on the underside of the folding rear seat (attached to the seat, not the floor) All in all the whole thing will look factory except for the head unit. oh, and this is what i mean by shallow mount http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...low-mount.html

I figured those would be the choices. The rear cargo panels seem like the way to go. I was only looking at 10" subs anyways, and I am not sure if I need two so I was just going to get one. I dont need it to move my rear view mirror, just something I can feel in hard hitting bass music.

Eh, the way I figure it, if those 2 10s in the back doors don't quite cut it (aside from metal do tend to listen to alot of EBM underground stuff, lots of bass) I can always put another pair under the front seats and put in another amp under the back seat next to the 5ch. But just to make sure you get the most out of the smaller subs you should definately invest a little bit of time and money into some sound dampening. I'm planning to get a couple rolls of RAAMmax and a few yards of ensolite, along with some of the Dynaxorb things from dynamat. It should sound really good even though it's smaller subs and large cabin space.

I have my third row, but I take my sub out and put the seat in if I have to. My third row is sitting in the garage.

I would like something I don't have to remove all the time I want to have a 3rd row or want to haul something in the back. It would just be an added annoyance (to me at least).

yep, that's why my whole system will be hidden. Hell, the only time you would even see the amp is when the rear seats are folded down for extra cargo space.

Make sure you have clearance, because when you let the seats down the top of the back rest rubs the bottom of the seat. unless you plan on sinkin the amp into the seat.
