Don't think there is enough room. The sub needs atleast an inch between it and the floor. there is no more than a 1/2 inch between my shallow sub and the top of the box. There is only about 7 inches if that under the seat. My seat will not slide or function normally. It is locked in place, unless I am taking the box out, and that takes a little time.

I've had custom made enclosures that fit under the front seats for well over two years now, and I've been running Arc Audio 10 inch subs w/ no problems. I'm actually running 3 of them off of a 1k watt Arc amp.

I too am running subs under my front seats, but I'm not as good as Dave and Brad. I only have 8's under my seats, but if you talk to anyone, I bump pretty damn hard with them.

I know its been a while. This month I may be able to towards the end. I just had surgery and driving a maunal is literally a pain right now since I had carpal tunnel surgery also. Soon though, as soon as I'm strong enuff to.

I can't really give dimensions for my box cause its multi-faceted. It is a box, sort of, but it was made to fit every crack and crevice under the stock seats. I'd have to disconnect my screens, and remove the seats to get the boxes out.

Some of the shallow 12s should work if the cubic foot requirements are the same as some 10s.
