Subwoofer install

Hi,
I'm new to the forums and I was just wondering if my subs would fit in the trunk of my 2006 mustang that I just bought, or the back seat if that doesn't work.
The subs I have are 12'' kicker 10dc22's with a JVC 2-channel amp that I had from my last car.
The subwoofer enclosure dimensions are:
Height: 16''
Width:32-7/16"
Depth : 13-7/8"
Second Depth: 17-1/4"

Im pretty sure there is enough space in the trunk (barely though) but the problem is getting them in. Is there anyway to remove the trunk linear or backseats and make the fit? Or should I buy a new enclosure or sell them and find better fitting subs?

If they won't fit in through the trunk opening, try popping the back seats down and slide it in from inside the car. (May have to remove passenger seat)

I have dual 12" subs in my '07 mustang in my trunk. Mount the amp against one of the seats and I custom mounted the subs easily

Do what I did... single 12" kicker L7.

Also, for those of you with a current setup, they do make dual 12 boxes specifically for mustangs.

I ended up selling them for the same price I bought them and now im looking at some 10'' rockford fosgates. Anyone have experience with these? I also might go with a ground shaker box that is custom fit for the mustang and put in 12'' JL audio subs or RF's.

I had dual 12" subs in the trunk of my 05 but I took them out cause they took up to much trunk space, i now have only one 12" sub in my trunk but it can handle 1200watts so it's good enough for a while.
