So I'm looking at my options for getting a sub in my 2007 FX4 extended cab;

I'm looking at either an underseat powered sub I found on Amazon with the slimmest profile:


Dimensions: 33.02 x 23.5 x 5.72 cm;

I made a quick prototype and it seems like it would just about fit under the passenger seat.

I don't know much about electrical/audio equipment so I wanted to ask if at 100 watts RMS this will be able to fill in the lower end sufficiently?

If not, I'm considering something for behind the seat. Such as this Scosche powered sub:


It wouldn't be as discreet as the under seat option but I'm assuming as a 10 inch with 125 RMS it will deliver better bass.

Can anyone weigh in on this?

My credo
Crossed threads are tight threads.
I would go at least 200w dedicated separate amp. 2 channel is all you need if you are only powering the sub with it. Look into 4ohm vs 2ohm, and also consider dual voice coils. My 10" in a bazooka tube thumped like a 12", but a behind or under seat setup can sound good if done right. I would go at least 10" sub if you want bump.
