Default Subs behind the seat?

Can you put any sub behind the seat of a 2012 crew cab? Im new to the F150 world. I am thinking of doing the JL Stealthbox but hate loosing that room under the seat.

Thanks

You can put it (stealthbox) UNDER the back seat, but I've never seen it placed BEHIND.
I have it in my 2009 and its perfect. I wired it with banana clips so that I can take it out if I need to. Friction actually holds it in place. I have the tw13 installed with it. ...

You're not going to fit anything worth having behind that seat

I put two sound ordnance powered subs behind the rear seat on my 2013 crew cab. They don't shake the block down but they punch pretty good together. The bass fills the truck nicely and shakes the rear view mirror.

I did a single SO and it's great for what it is.

Thinking of adding a second.

Add the second one in you won't be disappointed. And you can wire it up so only 1 control know adjusts the sub level with the remote

So it is JL that will fit behind the seats? I am thinking of doing this as well as the stealth box. My big question is about the volume limiter on this truck. I know that there are many threads so i will research before asking...

Don't hunk JL anything will fir behind seats. As to your next question, not sure but it's not so much a limiter as it pulls certain tones and frequencies to fall off the louder the volume goes.

No way for limiter to be off nukes you do LOC with DSP.

Others replace the door speakers and sub. If that doesn't work for you then you can go the DSP route but I guarantee that if you put in a better sub and door speakers you will be happy and won't even notice the "limiter"

Default Stock lariat sub

So I have a question. I have a 2009 F150 FX4 and I bought a stock sony 700 w sub/amp and it did not come with wiring harness/kit. Is there anyway to get this hooked up? I've called around and every audio shop I've talked to said it can't be done. I find it hard to believe I'm the first one that has thought of this; if anyone could shed some light on this it would be much appreciated. I need to know if I need it get rid of it and just get the sound ordnance (should of in the first place it seems).

Thanks in advance!

Do you have the Sony HU? Probably not. Then I would sell it.

I've got a 2014 Raptor Screw w/ the NAV, Sony, sub, etc. Thinking of upgrading and I like the idea of the behind the seat subs.

A few questions:

1) Will 2 SO fit behind the seat - without cutting the rear material?

2) How much space on the rear wall behind the seat will be taken up by 2 SO and would there still be space for an amp back there? (Thinking of upgrading door speakers/tweaters w/ a 4 ch amp or somthing like that.)

3) Subjectively how much better would 2 SO be than the Sony sub? How would 2 SO compare w/ the Kicker Soundstage?

I mostly listen to rock and alternative at mid-levels. Little rap.

TIA.
