subs for a 96 single cab...help for the love of moses...:)

hello all, im new to the forum and own a 1996 single cab...my main questoin is what do us single cab people do about subs? i saw the MTX thunderboard and it says it will fit behind the seats (which unfortunately are bench but im workin on that) with out any loss of leg room, does anyone have this sub and if so does it sound good? any help is appreciated and thanks in advance

heres a link to the MTX sub im talkin about (disreguard price, ive seen em go cheaper than that)

I have the thunderform. I like....but mind you i DON'T like body shaking bass like some people. I like my set up to be able to hit fine and still be able to enjoy the music and understand the lyrics. The thunderform does it so i'm pleased.

i originally had that box from supercrew sound.. it was kinda big .. really took away from the air space on the face of the speaker.. i can give you the deminsions of my box if interested. i will tell you i am at bare minimum for air space, but it sounds great and i still have my buckets all the way back and reclined comfortably.also have plenty of room for my amp as well. im not sure how different our cabs are back there but heres the amp ..

I dont doubt it will fit...ive bought boxes online before that claim they fit a 1996 ranger single cab and they usually do. However, i have to pull the bench seats all the way up. I'm 6'2 and driving a single cab with the seats pulled all the way up with my height is like waking up and finding my head sewn to the carpet...but thanks for the imput i appreciate it....

unless you're trying to pump out ALOT of bass, the thunderform works just fine. i'm running that with an amp to my front 6x8 kenwood speakers, and it sounds great. i added bass for balance, not to shake the street. i guess it depends on what kind of music you listen to.
