I just put a whole system in my truck last weekend. I bought a sub box for 2 10" subs off of ebay, shipped for $98, it fit perfect. I had to open the sub holes up a touch but for the price you can't beat it. You lose your jack and carpet for it to fit, I trimmed the carpet to fit above the box so it looks neat. Oh and also had to trim the center seatbelt cover it's a straight cut so no biggie. I went with a Kicker mono 600 watt amp, it puts 300 watts to each Pioneer shallow mount sub. I have a PPI 4 channel amp feeding 4 Polk Audio replacement speakers and a 2600 series Pioneer touchscreen. I'm very happy with this whole setup, it sounds really good, I'm sure the JL's or the Alpine type R's would hit harder, but I'm older now and don't need all of that, it's pretty impressive how it turned out. I think they make a box for 2 12's but not sure, and I do have a power rear window.

I've got a 2000 CC, and what I did was search the web and found the spec's for a box, and then built it myself for a lot less money, plus the satisfaction I did it myself. I picked up 2(10") Baja sub's from Circuit City and the amp as floor model's for under $100 after it was all said and done I've got less than $300 in a kick arsh stereo system that will shake the outside mirrors

Its a high price tag, but I dont regret it.

I cant argue with a man that builds his own.

I don't have any pics or write up but I can tell you whatever you wanna know. I could take some but I'm getting ready to go snow skiing for the weekend so I don't have much time to do that. If you are still interested I might can post some up first of next week, I bought everything off of ebay the amp wiring kits, the Kicker amp, box, subs and touchscreen for a little over $800 and did it all myself. It took about 10-12 hours of wiring to make it all look good. Oh yea the Kicker amp came with a capacitor and amp wiring kit too for $250.
