Powered sub under passenger seat

I tried searching but could not find anything.

Does anyone have a powered sub under the passenger seat? Wondering what options there might be that fit the 5th Gen

I currently have a mono amp under there, and a small 8" JL Audio micro sub amp in the trunk, powered by a old JL Audio e1200 mono amp (120W) under the passenger seat, but more and more I'm putting up the third row and having to take out the sub box due to the small trunk that's left when the third row is up.

These are ones I see that might work, but have no idea on the fit:
Sound Ordnance B-8PTD 125-watt compact powered subwoofer at Crutchfield

Sound Ordnance B-10AS Single 10" sealed subwoofer enclosure with 100-watt amp at Crutchfield

RetroSound SUB-8100 Compact powered subwoofer: 100 watts and an 8" sub at Crutchfield

JVC CW-DRA8 Compact powered subwoofer: 150 watts and an 8" sub at Crutchfield

JBL BassPro SL 8" compact powered under-seat subwoofer enclosure at Crutchfield

Im running these under my seats.

No issues at all with clearance and no mods needed except removing the foot vent deal

Sound is pretty good considering the line input and the small space.

It is in no way a replacement for a full amp/sub combo.

I would go with the Alpine, I had it all picked out before I went with my JL in the stock speaker box. If I couldn't fit the stock sub box I definitely would have done the Alpine

I have a Kenwood powered sub under my drivers seat and then added Focal ISS690 speakers in the front doors/dash. That was a huge improvement from stock.

Last month I installed the Kicker Key 180.4 amp under the drivers seat with the sub. That proved to be the difference maker. If you are going to add the sub I highly recommend adding the amp for the speakers too if you haven't done so already - made a huge difference for the speakers and the overall sound quality.

It's a bit tight under the seat but it can fit.

Take a look at this thread regarding installing the powered sub - it proved very useful for me.

It completely covers the heat vent now?

Covers, not exactly. Air can still flow.

Once you remove the "end" the vent terminates in front of the sub.

I can try to grab a pic later.

This is very helpful, thanks. From your alpine I can see the dimensions, so now I know what fits.

My 'full' amp/sub combo is not a very powerful one. I mis-typed above, I currently have an 8" micro-sub from JL audio powered by a 120W mono JL Audio e1200 amp. While it's amp/sub combo, it's not anything to write home about.

So you have the Kenwood powered sub AND the Kicker Key amp under the same seat? What model sub is that?

I already have a 4 channel rockford fosgate amp under the driver seat powering all the speakers, which are not stock speakers.

That is fancy, and it looks like that will "hang" the sub so it clears the vent.

As a pro tip, velcro sticks to the carpet.

Glad to help.

I see, yes in comparison to the micro sub I think you will be happy with these, I wired into the rear channels so that along with the EQ I can tune the sound more front for less bass.

On that Alpine model, there is also a bass knob option that I am not using as well as HP/LP filter knobs.

I have a Pioneer powered sub under the passenger seat. It seems to provide all the bass I really wanted, and doesn't restrict the air vent in any way. As an FYI, there is a detailed installation procedure in the Modification sticky above, entitled Subwoofer Install.

Which pioneer do you have?

Anyone have any experience with this one? Cerwin Vega is an established brand, and this seems to be the only 10" powered sub I can find that has the dimensions of the Alpine one that @Heavy_GD has

Cerwin Vega VPAS10 550W 10" Low Profile Amplified Subwoofer

It is listed as the #1 out of 17 powered subs reviewed here:
