How to fit a 12" subwoofer (w/ box) behind my seat w/o taking the seat out?

I am in a quandary of how to fit a 12" subwoofer behind my '03 SE without having to take my backseat out. Is this possible? And how do I go about doing it? I would hate to have no box at all as I wouldn't get the same quality sound from the subwoofer. Any help would be appreciated!

Yes it can be done has been done and will be done again.LOL any truck style box will fit back there as long as it is no bigger than 31"s wide 14"s high and top depth can be 6"s and bottom 10"s.

there are some speaker boxes that will fit behind the rear seat and there are a few companies that make a box that fits into the bottom of the rear seat.

Yes Engineering 33 makes this box to go IN the lower part of the back seat but it will only hold 2-10s I guess you could get them to make the cutouts to fit for a set of the shallow 12s but not sure if there would be enough air space to suffice. http://www.offroadtoystore.com/Merch...Category_Code=

HENCE THE REASON MY FIRST POST HAD THE DIMENSIONS ,IN CASE HE WANTS TO BUILD HIS OWN.Those dimension are a starting point but I would build a down fire box for a set of 10s before I would build another one for a single 12.

Thank You!

Thanks guys... Got one of those Rockford Fosgate Punch 12'' sub today at Best Buy. Fits very nice behind the seat and sounds good too. Also got an amp for it. So now I have 2 amps... one that runs the 4 speakers and one 2 channel that runs the Sub. Now I have to figure out a way to keep it from being ripped off. Thanks Again!
