Default sound system help

ok yall i bought a 99 ranger 4x4 off road with the 3.0. im not to happy with the facory radio or speakers. i have the ext cab but also have 2 9 year olds that sit back there so a sub box is pretty well no go. is it possibal to put a small box with say a 10 or 8" sub behind the fold down bucket seat? i have also heard that they make one that goes under the pass or drivers seat but i dont see how. does anyone have suggestions. as for door and rear speakers i can get some good ones and hook them up to a amp and mount amp under one of the seat. just miss my bass.

This is what I'd do if I were you...

Front speakers:
http://cgi.ebay.com/PHOENIX-GOLD-RSD...item1e5d7574b9

Rear speakers:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Phoenix-Gold-RSD...item2eb6187610

Amp:
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...-ONX4.125.html

Wiring:
http://cgi.ebay.com/KnuKonceptz-Blue...item588ea88596

(You'll need an extra set of RCA's with that Knu Konceptz wiring kit)

Do you want a lot of bass? Or more like 500w?

I believe this will fit under a seat or even possible behind a jump seat

that sub that goes under the seat is the first one i have seen that small thats awesome anyways i replaced my stock speakers with kickers and an amp it gave me more bass but lacks vocal. I think the stock speakers are great, changing out the hu could improve speaker sound, the stock hu isnt that great so change out the hu and then see if u still wanna change out speakers

That boss under seat subwoofer is decent but they don't last. I had one for a year and a half and it crapped out

do a shallow mount sub like this: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500SWS1...FShallow_Mount
with a custom box mounted to the rear wall.
here's my box's with 2 8" kickers. mine aren't shallow mounts but with a shallow mount you could probably build a box that only sticks out like 3". even with my boxes i can still sit 2 ppl back there

Never would of guessed the MB Quart would be so affordable. Glad you put up a link. I have used Sonicelectronix in the past too.
