Well, don't really undrestand why you mentioned the fold down seats. If you're worried about the bass getting into you car than you could either remove the H/K 5x7" (if you have H/K upgrade), if not, just pop out the two holes. If you go with one 12w6v2, then go to a body shop and cut the hole behing your rear arm rest area. Then fit the sub directly behind it so that it fires into the cabin.

The bass sound is great!!!! I lose about 1/3 of volume when the arm rest is up. My wife drives with the arm rest up.................and I drive with it down.................perfect for her and perfect for me.

No. You have to leave enough room between the subwoofer and the back of the seats (including the arm rest) for full excursion.
