Need some help with Audio (Subwoofers)

My last ranger i had 3 12's in the back rendering the jumper seats useless. Im about to be picking up another ranger and id like to have some type of subwoofers in there, but still be able to use the jump seats. Im thinking 2 10's, each in their own box directly under the seats, or just 1 12" if it will fit. I have heard mixed opinions on shallow firing subs, so i was wondering if shallow firing subs would be my only option here, and if so, which ones sound the nicest.

Also, what do you think about this?

Height 13-1/4"
Width 21-1/2"
Depth 3-9/16"

Would that fit? Under the seat while its layed out that is. I wish i had the truck right now lol or else i wouldn't be bothering you guys with these questions and id take some damn measurements myself.

PS: Im sooo stoked for this truck. my first truck ever was a 95 splash edition ranger so i definitely have a spot in my heart for em. Haha this ones more of a monster though, 2000 XLT (4.0) with a 4" Suspension lift, 3" body lift, 35" mud tires, brush guard, 4x4 lights... ahh i cant wait...

Heres my first truck btw. Thanks for any help guys

The link is broken so I'm not sure what your talking about but a height of 13"? No way that would fit, you can see my box is almost 5" tall and it is almost touching the the jump seat. And as far as shallow subs go, don't expect it to be as loud as your subs you had before no matter how powerful it is because they just aren't.

But I have a 10" Kenwood KFC-XW1000F and it performs pretty much like any shallow sub out there. Here are some pictures of my box, also remember when making it to not only consider height, you have to remember that when people sit on the seat your gonna want most of the sub covered by the seat so their legs don't hit the sub.

(that is about the max you want to go because I have about 1 inch of room above the sub so theres a little room for the seat to sag down when someone sits on it and some room for the woofer)
