Question Best "Unobtrusive" Subwoofer?

Hello, I'm looking to buy a 2-door JK Wrangler. Noticing the unique Wrangler layout of the back basically being flat (I won't have my rear seats in), I feel like a subwoofer just sitting there would look weird and get in the way. This being the case, I'm looking for a decent subwoofer that won't be a burden on my cargo space much like the factory installed "premium sound" package's subwoofer (like this). I'd even settle for a bassy sound bar. Recommendations?

I put a "boss" 8" flat sub under my passanger seat. It sounds great, has an amp in it already. $100. No its not competition, but it throws plenty of bass to fill the voids. Also get aftermarket speakers and head unit. Im glad I did.

You can put up to a 10" sub under each front seat. I know because I have two 10" Sundown SD-2s, one under each seat. I have made several others for people with Rockford Fosgate 10s, Alpine Type R 10s and the new JL Audio shallow 10.

No big box in the back and excellent bass performance with the top off.

Yesterday I installed a Kenwood KSC-SW11 under my drivers seat. It fit perfectly between the seat mounting points.
