I have a pair of Kenwood Excelon P-XW1000B 10" Single Subwoofer Enclosures that I want to place under the rear seats of my truck, along with an amp. I havent torn the plastic or support bar out yet, so I dont know what I will have to do to make them fit correctly. But one thing I was wondering is how you would go about the wiring? I dont know anything about the 8" My link with bose system. I installed a 7" android head unit in my last truck with a separate base control that tapped into the amp inputs, so I'm not totally green to complicated systems.
Thanks for any insight..
Oh.. heres a pic after one month of ownership and 2000 miles. I removed the Z71 stickers after a while. I've always felt that they belong on a RC car rather than my truck.
It's a 2017, 2.8, Z71, Premium bose, Cajun red, bed liner, and a few other things.

I think with this truck I'd just use a speaker level input for the sub amp and find and tap into the rear speaker wires. I also don't know what's going to happen if you tear out the plastic under the seat. I wonder how much that supports the seat? I would hope it is there for a reason, because it really sucks that it's there .

I wouldn't trade any ounce of storage. The truck is very lacking on storage space already. You didn't get the Bose?

Thanks, and I think it is a new color. It is a head turner, which I was not expecting. Might get some *fingers crossed* ;)
Kinda ticked me off to find out that they sold a ZR2 model of the same color in my town, right after mine.
Anyway.. From what I have seen, under the plastic shroud, there is a bracket which supports the front of the rear seats. The speaker box options that I have seen act as replacement support, therefor they are of a down-fire variety, which is the style I have on hand. I think because they are narrower combined that the Chevy plastic cover, I should gain a small amount of storage right in the middle of the seats.
I really dont like the idea of tapping into the rear speakers because the audio has been altered for them by the stereo. If I go to the deck, I can put in an inline control to do on-the-fly adjustments. Plus I'll have to get power back there somehow anyway.
