Default Sub Install Question

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''
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 those are the same pair that I bought awhile back, no they won't fit..

I picked up a set of Kicker 12"s in a premade box from BestBuy..
spent two hours trying to make it fit.. pulled out the flooring, was literally upside down inside the trunk, no way.

I'd sell and find better fitting..(also you'll have to unbolt the trunk latch to get anything in there.

I have a single JL 12 in a ported box, and I think it hits much harder than 2 12"s in a sealed with one amp.

Yep, the JL is the King of Mustang BASS.
