The Johnny is 32" tall and 7 cubic feet. The Mini Marty is 24" tall and 5 cubic feet. 1/2 way in between should be 6 cubic feet. I'm guessing that the "Austin" would be around 28" tall.

I don't have any idea how you are going to get a box that deep behind the seat of a single cab truck. Based on that I suggest the Sundown SD3 series. They aren't true shallow mount subs since they...
