I'm toying around with Org-mode and Speedbar/Sr-speedbar.

I like that it shows Task and subtasks. But it doesn't show anything lower, e.g:

* Task (shown)
** subtask (shown)
*** Sub-sub task (not shown)
**** sub sub sub task (not shown)

Is it possible for it to actually show full depth?

This can be controlled using org-imenu-depth. Speedbar uses IMenu to determine the nodes for expansion.

By default imenu only captures two levels deep. (See Org Manual - Cooperation)

Setting the depth to greater than 2 levels and then initiating a rescan. This can be done automatically for you by setting imenu-auto-rescan to a non-nil value (GNU Emacs - Imenu).
