Look into the Alto shallow mount woofers, here... I have heard them and they are amazing drivers. I don't know the prices of them, really, but I can tell you they are very nice "pieces of kit".
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

I have heard the Pioneer TS-SW3041D and was not amused. The bass was I guess you could say muddy. It was in a ported enclosure and just did not sound right. Hard to explain, but in my personal opinion I would not run the Pioneer

I've heard most people say the Pioneer's aren't the best choice. Given that, I would probably put those at the bottom of my list.
I am really curious about the Clarion subs. I would be able to squeeze 3 of these into my truck because they use like .3 or .5 ft/3 each. Anyone have experience with these

you can put any sub in a small box, people just read the manuals and think that that is the best possible. yes they sound good in the recommended size box but you can put them in a small box also. someone correct me if im wrong but i have been told this a couple of times and dont see why it would be false...

Well, yes and no. From what I understand, you can put a speaker in a smaller box and have it perform properly if:
1. The enclosure is no more than 20% smaller than the recommended size.
2. If you do this, you polyfill the box- about 1lb. per cu. ft.
Or you can put it in a much smaller box and the speaker will sound like doodie. Honestly, I would rather listen to a stock system than a doodiety system that I built. Doing it this way is pointless.
My main concern here is the depth of the speaker itself. My theory is by using 3 of the Clarion subs, I have more woofer surface area and therefore, more bass. Again, this is a THEORY. I know there are all kinds of variables here which is why I am asking for the pro's opinions.

im guessing this is all going to be sealed up to save space right?

Haemphyst- I checked into the Alto subs and, my god, are they expensive. The 12" are $950 ea. and are discontinued. Wish I had that kind of money to waste, but I don't.
Aznboi- I will look into the Elemental subs. I just have a hard time spending money on something I haven't heard, especially if it is a brand that I have never heard of. At least a brand name like JL (for instance) you can usually count on getting a quality product.
Anyone else comment on the list of speakers?

Maybe someone can give a little more insight, but Rockford Fosgate has a shallow mount sub. I believe it is a 3.5" mounting depth. I have not used them before but is another option. If you want but can't information, i can send a link later.

ED builds their drivers in house...so they know they quality because they are giving you a 5 year warranty, what other company do you know that has a 5 year warranty on their products???
give their customer service a call and talk to them...really nice people and will work with you.
