Which 10" sub to get?

I have had 12s in the truck since i bought it. First I had two 12s, but it took up the whole portion of the extended cab. So i cut the box in half and used one 12. My system bumps. But, it takes up too much room, and i need to be able to fit one person in the back. So, i want to switch to a 10 that will take up only 1/4 of the floor space so a person can sit on one side in the little seat and be able to have leg room.
What sub can I get that will give me the power and deep base that I had with my 12? And will it even be comparable with one of those tiny boxes?

ok, someone told me to get type Rs, so I found a couple on ebay for a little over $100 for a 10" SWR. It says they only need .8 cu ft of air space, which should be a lot smaller than the box I have. Are these good subs?
What do I need for an amp as far as RMS and should I get the 2ohm subs or 4 ohm. And since their dual voice coil do I need a 2 channel amp or can I use a mono amp?

I have a Infinity Kappa perfect 12" which they don't carry anymore but with a Rockford Fosgate 550.2 amp and is much louder than my old set up of two Kicker CVR12s.

if u get a 12 there will be space for someone in the back.

I have an exile audio 10 right now and love it. I just put a image dynamics in my sisters car and that decent also. I won't put low end audio stuff in a vehicle, Im not about earth shattering bass, just a good clean filler to say...

Im glad you went with type r. I had a 10" a 12" and a 15" and Always been extremely happy. The only thing I would suggest over the would be a kicker cvx or solobaric.
