    Here are pics of my car and sub installed in the back. I think any of the other suggestions in this thread would work for you since you have the sedan and need to do the trunk thing. I would still encourage you to go see a local car adio specialist in your area to see for yourself what your option may be. Enjoy!!!

    The problem is that the Kenwood has cooling slots on the back (check my pics in earlier post) and you can't mount it flush to the floor under the seat. The mounting brackets add another inch and about a half to the depth (for cooling) when you mount speakers face up. I was hoping it would fit also so I wouldn't have to use space in the back of my wagon .... but there you go.

    That sucks I have a few other ideas anyway, could you email me pics of the mounting brackets to mount it face up. I would be interested to see before I went out and bought it. Is there any diference in the seats for my 02 wagon. I thought I had an inch or more to spare.

    The brackets used to mount face up are smaller. The depth of the speaker plus the bracket would be about 5" (You might measure under your seat to see if you think you have the room. Remember you have to be able to accomodate the offset, about an inch, for the brackets to be screwed down to the floor. 9 1/4" wide instead of 8 1/4) mounted face up. The length is 15 1/2". The brackets have to be mounted to the speaker before the floor in the face up option so you would probably have to remove your seat to get it done. Of course this is the old model which I have in my car. The published size specs for the new model are 15-3/4" x 3-11/16" x 9-1/16" plus brackets which is thinner but wider & longer. It just might work. You might call Crutchfield or one of the other online outlets and get an opinion from one of their "experts" to see if they think the newer model would fit under the seat. They may not know. Good luck! http://www.crutchfield.com/S-MxoS9qQ...ch=Kenwood+sub
