just a suggestion, i have found that the more research and more opinions you get on an option even if they completely argue with your main point, you are more informed for the decision you make, and you make a better decision.
me and you could get along very well...

I'll hopefully be ordering this stuff in like 2 weeks. I'll definately post pics once it's done and let you all know how it sounds and what I hit on a db meter.
I wish you could hear mine...you would probably settle on 2 12's. I dunno but, I'm not a small guy (over 6 ft) and I lost almost 0 space w/ 2 12's. with a 15...I would lose about 1.5"...to me, thats huge. And 2 properly ported, installed, selected 12's will be INSANE. I'm talking like over 150, thats the point where it *hurts* to sit in the car. Well, thats how I like my music :)
if you do decide on 15's...do a square shape box with 45 degree angles everywhere and tune to taste (music sounds good tuned from 36/38 on down) anywhere above 40hz tuning and it's a spl beater box
trust us, we are pretty knowledgable on car audio, 2 15's pretty much is a little too much for a ranger IMO. I know of 2 15's in a full size that hits a 152 (2 dd 9515's) but I guarantee you can't get enough airspace to push 2 15's to where they need to be. I am almost pushing it w/ airspace (way over rec. but not what I wanted) just because of space.
also, I would fire subs up port up...thats been the loudest in my testing. well loudest to the ear, the TL is different...
anyways, i vote 2 12's...maybe even 3...
3 12" type r's or kicker l7's on more than 1kw...you won't be hearing too well. I only have about 1kw to 2 12's and I"m hurting...bad
remember, properly port, properly install, install is SO much of your sound...i stress that a lot. If you were closer I could help you install, we could have a mod meet!!!! That would be pretty cool!!!
BTW, anyone got any audio they need installed, we can have a meet!!! I'm down...
