Hey guys.

I currently have 2 older kicker Comp VR's in my truck (10's in a ported box)

with a random amp, it hits pretty hard and louder than most people around town here, but my box is way to big, it takes up almost all my extended cab space.

so i want to make the box that goes into the folding seat in the back, and just put 1 10 or 12 in there.

thing is, i still want loud. can we port that? and make it larger? i don't really know anything about making boxes really. but i want to get either like a sundown 1200 or something like that, and for sub i'm not to sure, either like a DC Sub or a Audioque sub.

i know going from my cheap random setup to a way better amp/sub is going to be louder, but will i notice a large difference going from 2 10's to a single 10 or 12?

i'm not in a hurry to upgrade my audio system, i've spent way to much this month already on my truck, and i gotta sell a few items and pay off the truck finally in a few months. so just give me ideas and i'll get a picture of my current setup right now when its daytime.

Optima Redtop battery, Big 3, i have 0 gage wiring for when i upgrade, and also larger speaker wire as well. some dynomat done to the cab but i'ma do more on the doors/floor soon.

Well a few nights ago i ordered my sub, says takes 5-7 days for build time.

i'm hoping by the end of next week it comes, that would be nice.

i'ma go pick up a sheet or 2 of mdf tomorrow and start in on the box before work.

here is something to laugh at, i picked up an AC/DC clamp today when i picked up some mdf for my new box

with 45 hz tone i'm at about 150 watts per sub. and man thats hardly nothing!

it can flex the back of the cab pretty good, and you can hear me from blocks when i have the windows open, i really wonder what it would do on the TL. lol
