Help with box design.

I'm planning on building a large system, most likely with 2 alpine type R 12" subs and a alpine 2 thousand watt amp. I've got a 2007 Ford Ranger Sport Ext Cab. I have some experience with car audio and I'm great at wood work but I've never build a box before. I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind designing a box for me. I was planning on having the box fill the entire extended cab left to right, front to back and coming up to about the high of the headrests. This model of ranger does have the hump in the back so I was thinking of just building a small platform underneath where I could put the amps and so I don't need to make a curve in the bottom of the box. If someone wouldn't mind putting a quick diagram together with dimensions that would be amazing. Any tips on building the box would be great as well.

PS. Was considering using 2 15's as well. Any opinions on this?

LOL


But as to your questions, IMO, the box size you're asking for would be better suited for 15's. Are you wanting them top firing? Also, why do you want to put your amps underneath? If you're building a box this size, it seems better suited to have the amps mounted in a visible location.
