I stumbled on to a friend from work working on the sub in his car the other day and it got me itching to add a little bass to my factory radio system. I've been through the multiple large subs and amps phase in my life and I still want a lot of usable space in my trunk. 

I remembered back in my retail electronics days I sold some car stereo set ups for single cab trucks that were super slim lined and I remembered being mildly satisfied with the sounds of a bazooka tube. 

 

I started my search with that in mind, then stumbled on to self-contained super slim units! Pretty much every manufacturer makes some version that is able to be slid under a seat. One that seems to be brand new on the market as of this year is the Rockford PS-8. It drew me in for the quality of rockford and the fact it comes with all the needed wiring plus a bass knob. I am on the hunt for a good deal on one currently.

I plan on installing it in the trunk. Hopefully mounted on the top section near the rear speakers. I'm running the factory head unit. I plan on using an RCA convertor to bum off the rear speaker connections to get sound. Should be a simple set up. Running the power line and finding a good remote line will be the only "difficult" part. The unit does have on/off sensing, but reviews on the actual sensing abilities have been weak for pretty much all manufactures. 

Wanted to get a thread going on it. Will hopefully have one acquired soon and begin an install!

I too am looking to add some more bass to my system.  I have 2-12" Hifonics Zeus subs to be powered with a Hifonics Zeus ZRX 1016-4 amp.  I know that running the power supply will be tricky, but I am also looking to find info on removing the radio dash so I can run the RCA's without "making a mess".  I haven't had any luck yet for the 2012 Z.  I may have find a Lincoln mechanic or bring it into a car audio store.

See if this helps.

drolds1, thank you for the helpful link.  I opted to have the installation done professionally.  For $100 it saved me a lot of time and possible aggravation
