Need help with choosing subs and amp for truck

I have a 2010 Silverado Crew Cab

I want RF Punch subs and amp under backseat of my truck. Probably have to go with slim subs, I know, but it's not that important that I beat the block down, I just want bass if I want it. I was thinking of going with a single sub under one seat, but if that is inadvisable, let me know. I would also like to be able to remove the whole thing if need be, for cargo room, although I have a bed with cover. I'm not exactly sure what I can fit, or how everything would sound. Not sure one would be enough, due to box size. I have an aftermarket radio already, but would need everything else to hook equipment up. I try to read this stuff, but honestly, I get lost in the ohms and stuff, and just want a system done right.

A single 10" sub will be good for a setup where you are going for sound quality. Adding an additional sub will add about 3 dB. I prefer to go with one really good quality sub than two or more. If you are going for SPL then multiple subs would be the way to go. I would check Crutchfield to look at what fits in your truck. There are some pre-made sub solutions are for your truck. I think JL audio had some products that would work in your truck.

For a truck I'd say 3 sub's would be sufficient!

I own a tundra QC and I only use 1- 12" JL Audio sub that is ported using a PPI amp. Its plenty for me but not sure what you are expecting out of the subs. Also I owned those pancake subs (slim) from kenwood and kicker and it just was too boomy 2-tone frequency subs for me and it lacked accuracy.
