Basically, if you want loud bass, you are going to want to amp the speakers (or add a powered sub under the seat). I would think you could fit an amp under the seat or maybe even behind the dash if you had to.
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

That sounds like the head unit amp is distorting, although Alpine is usually pretty good about that.
How much money are you willing to put into this?
How much modification are you willing to do to the truck?
What is the configuration of the truck and what speakers are in it now and what have you tried with it?
CF shows "With carpeted door pockets" "With non-carpeted door pockets" "Without door pockets, with door grilles" or "Without door pockets or grilles".
I took a guess and it shows 4-inch speakers in the doors and 5.25-inch behind the seats, which won't get you great bass, especially for rap.
You could also think outside the box a bit - i.e. you could probably mount some 6.5's or 6x9's in kick panel boxes (but you might have to fabricate them). I haven't heard of anyone actually trying it, but I'd think you could mount the amp under the hood and run the speaker wires and remote wires into the cab from it.

RBL:What ever you do don't place an amp under the hood.
Would a marine amp work like this - or not?
For my truck the website says I have 4" in the back for the front and something in the back but i really only have two spots in the front, on the door, and they are 6 1/2 inches. I thought about putting two 8" low mount kickers in the back and think it would have worked but now a days i dont have enough time to make a box that would fit due to it was such a detailed box.
By the way the stereo i have in my truck is an alpine CDA-9887 if that helps with any further advise tips for some good speakers.
Thanks RBL - that makes sense to me.
Nanthem - 6.5-inch speakers will sound decent with an amp on them - not the pound you in the chest bass of a true sub, but plenty for listening.
Hope This Helps!!!
