I'm now planning on trying to stuff 2 15's in the back. 1000 RMS. I listen to mostly rap so bass is the better part of it anyway. I already knew that 12's would be more feasible, but I wanna have big subs, fairly big power, and big sound. I'm building a custom box so I can form it to whatever I want for whatever tuning I want. 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.

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 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...

no blow thru. not gonna happen. I am gonna look into 12's though. All my friends are *****ing about me getting 15's because "they wont have anywhere to sit". the audiobahn 12's are the same wattage rms and max so i'll prob go with those and a profile amp.
