I want to up grade my sound system. For cheap

At the moment my radio doesn't even work but I want to fix it.
- I want to put 2 8 in. subs under/in my rear seat.
*I have saw people talking about it but i don't know how to do that.

And the wiring how would I do that, what do i need to connect the subs to my radio and make it work and Bump?

You are going to have to do a little research to make this idea work properly. The only component you're leaving out is the amplifier. It supplies the power to make the "bump" as you say. Sound quality and clarity is better than sheer power. I used to design subwoofer boxes and got a pretty good handle on the slot port design for open cabs and trunk spaces. You'll need to plan it out correctly of you want it to work. What do you have already?

I learn something new about you every day...

And to the OP I say just get a simple 10" kicker from best buy that fits behind the rear seat and an amp that's around 300watts and a wiring kit from Walmart. I had the same set up on mine with a 400watt amp around $220 complete.

Look up "SirGCal" on here or Google. He's a Mod on here (JF) I believe. He designed a sub box that functions as your rear seat. I got an old YJ rear bench for $10 and plan on converting mine into a single 12" box. Right now I'm running a cheapo sub box from Walmart and a Sony 2 channel amp (1000w) for all 4 speakers and sub. Sounds good at the moment but the box is a PIA to work around and had to add spacers between it and the tailgate for it to work.

I picked up a used 10" box designed for pickup trucks and small cars for $40 at a local Facebook garage sale site. It came with a pair of 300W 10's and horn style tweeters. Picked up a decent, used, 1000W amp for $50 from Craigslist and a $60 wiring harness from Wal-Mart. $150 and a morning's labor and they can hear me coming a block away.
