if one twelve good, if two say bye bye to trunk space. I personally get my subs on craigslist cause there usually priced real good and i can test em before hand. Point it to the back of the trunk in a sealed box and secure the box to the carpet with L brackets. Should be all good, also run the wiring along the sides of the cars, with the power on one side and the remote and RCA on the opposite side.

Kicker makes a really quality speaker.

I'm here because I want to learn from YOU! There is so much to know, and I have a small brain. Don't hold it against me.

I was thinking about getting a sound ordnance b12. Sounds like a good quality sub for the price. Any comments on it?

Please, and trust me on this, do not, I repeat DO NOT buy kicker subs. I'm one of the automotive installation technicians for geek squad in Southern California, and although Kicker has a stylish products, their bass can get a little muddy. As far as brand loyalty goes, I'm a pretty big fan of polk for both speakers and subs.

If you want a nice even bass level and clean sound you may want to go with 2 10" subs.

How about a JL audio Stealthbox? I realize for your model year it's only a 10, but a 10 in a properly designed enclosure will sound way better than a 12 in a questionable box:

(I have a Stealthbox in my 2011 and it pounds, but it's a 13")

the stealthbox is nice and replicates what the mach 1000 system offers, though a good angled and ported box rear facing with 2 tens works well in our year also, i know-2 JL 10's in my trunk.

Stealth box looks sweet..until I took a gander at the price... I'm on a bit of a budget. Try keeping it 300 and below

Wouldn't you want the remote turn on to be run with the B+ from the battery, since they both carry straight power as opposed to the RCAs, which carry a line-level signal?

A sealed box will be for listeners looking for sound quality driven system that is clean across the entire frequency band. I use 2 1o''powered subwoofers without box
