Mounting Depth Question

So, I'm planning on building a custom box for a RockfordFostgate P1S410. It needs .50-.85 for a sealed enclosure, and 1.40 for a vented. My problem is my regular cab pickup. I have about a foot at the widest point, between seats and the cab-wall. My question is, with a 5 1/2" mounting depth, how much space should I have between the bottom of the sub and the inside of the box? I want to get decent sound out of it, but space is my main concern, I can make sacrifices if need be. Any opinions or ideas for an enclosure would be greatly appreciated.

2" min and even then it can cause defection from the pole of the sub(kinda like putting a 4" port 1-2" from the back of the sub or box)I would stay about 4-5" or more

If you don`t want to do something like a T shape box(sub between the seats and box extends behind) then you are left with side firing 8",A bass tube,Heavy mods,a bunch less foot room(you don`t want the sub damaged from smacking the seat back) or shallow mount subs.Anything can be done just depends on how far you are willing to go
