If you do end up going the 2 12" sub option, then I suggest getting this box, it just saves on boot space.
I bought it off ebay from Bayside Autostyling, based in melbourne, just under $200

Nice box >_<.
what Box is you're sub in? I know in my eb with the 12"kicker CVR I had running off a 800wrms OA mono when it was in a small sealed box it was barly anything and pulled a measly 126.9db.
Then I put it in the box from my 4500series MTX sledgehammer 137db.
Was also alot louder sitting about half way down the boot space in the middle facing the rear with the 60 down.

open up a hole in your parcel shelf and cover it in mesh, this will expose yout boot space to the cabin, similar effect to lowering your seats...

good advice but only sorta.

if you want that box then you need to find a pair of subs that like that size enclosure. its in the specs of all subs and they all have different needs.

my kicker 18 came in a box that was 6 cu/ft its not in a custom tuned 10 cu/ft box and sounds a s**t load better and louder, should be a 3-5db gain just from the box.

for what you like ide get a 15" in a ported box. how much $$$ you want to spend and go from there.

Thats a good idea FAST-XR, i may have to look into it!

and thanks heaps for that dan_mac20, that will probably give me more space than my current arrangement if i decide to go down that path! I have looked into what ausedwagon was saying and he seems to be on the right track. there are too many options when deciding what goes in our boot :/
