They make wedges that fit behind the rear seat. You could also easliy build one your self out of plywood, you spealer(s) and some outdoor carpet. There is plenty of room back there.

I've also seen a Bazooka mounted sideways behind the seat - kinda cool also.

If you are going to use 12's don't use plywood, use 3/4 MDF board instead. This board flexes and holds in the vibration giving you a good sound. I have two 12's behind my fold and tumble seat. Make sure you off set the box to the right so that you can still get to the lever to pop your seat and then offset the speakers to the left to clear the latch pins. This puts the speakers in the center for the most part.

If you are running a low wattage amp there is only room for one 12. You would want to build a sealed box to fit the whole area behing the seat. That is if your going for db, if your going for quality build it to spec which is usually 1cu ft. I use a 4.5 cu ft ported box tuned for 2 12's and 800watts RMS. Had to remove backseat, plan on making it downfiring so people can ride back there easier. I built a small box out of the left over wood to put my amps in and put it infront of my subs as a backseat.

boxes aren't built out of mdf because it flexes. It doesn't flex. That's the point. And don't build a box to a generic size. Every speaker has a specific size enclosure that it is designed to work in. For factory, look at JL's stealthbox. They're loud and have excelent sound quality, and it will probably never be stolen.

I have two orion 10's and two orion 12's in my jeep and all the seats are still there. The twelves are behind the back seat along with two competition amps along with three capacitors. Those are the big guns of my system but still they fit. It pushes about 160Db with a softop. Oh yeah all of my boxes are made of 7/8" thick headboards. If I could've I would have used 3/4" MDF. Its what all the stereo shops use. This should tell you that if you are creative enough that you can fit it without major changes.
