I went with a single 12" DVC 2 ohm Boston Acoustic Pro series woofer in a 1.5 cubic foot box. I built the box to follow the seat back angle, fit around the rear ledge and span between the door trim and tunnel. The woofer faces down and has a gap of 2" to the floor. It played PLENTY hard and was nice, as I could put whatever I wanted on top / around it. As for sitting, you would have the other seat available.

well cvxs are round solobarics and they love air space. So a vented box is probably the best for 2 reasons. 1 the bass is louder and 2 it lets the voice coils breathe which is really important on kickers. I seen more people fry l5s and l7s in a small sealed ox then anything. They love having air to breathe and to help cool. So look for a big dual 12 slot vented box and you should be happy...ALSO dont forget to break the subs in for about a week before u turn the gain up!!!!!!!!!!!
