2 Old subwoofers

I have two old speakers from probably 1992 time frame. What is the best way to determine max amps and watts (RMS and Peak)? I'm completely brain farting on this one...

Check the bottom of the magnet it is usually there on a sticker. Or what brand and model are they a member might know, I have been in car audio since the early 90's. If you can post a picture or just brand and model I might be able to help you out.

They are Kicker model C10 Competition speakers. I went to Circuit City today and they think that the max wattage on one of them might be around 150 W.. What do you think?

the 150 I believe is the rms. I believe the speakers you have are 300 watts max. I say get a 400 watt amp and install it to your truck. Makes a nice back massager.

I'm not sure what size box do you think I should build for that speaker?

go to http://www.kicker.com/06/kicker_home.html
the link posted will give you specs for a kicker comp 10 inch sub which is what you have. It says 2.27cubic feet. It will give you the correct hole size to cut out for the box. As for the cubic feet needed it says 2.27 cubic feet so build a box that will give you at least 2 cubic feet I don't think that .27 is really gonna make a difference in sound all that much. There was a thread that showed pictures of boxes people built for there trucks on here I don't know where it went though.
