I had a 94 with a 12 orion and a small amp. It pounded! You wont need 2 if you have the right box, sub and amp. My box was like 12x12x15

I once had 2 12's in my 95. Took up too much room so I cut it in half. Later I made my own box and it fit even better off to the side of the trunk. All you need is one 12 in the rite size box and the rite amount of power. My sub kicks ass and comes out easy if I ever get a flat tire and need my spare.

I have a kicker l7 12" on a Kicker zx750 amp. I had to pull out the spare tire to get the enclosure to go in. Once I got it in I put the spare back in- just need that extra bit of space to maneuver it.

in my hatchback i have a 500w monoblock alpine amp and a type r 12 ported and it sounds super clean,

for you i would try and get a Sealed custom box made from your local car audio place that can make the correct air space for your speakers. and if you want to make your car and windows to flex and if you can afford it

get a custom ported box through the rear dash, my 02 altima had 2 type alpine type r's with 1000 w monoblock and i got like 3 tickets

a sealed box will be cheaper and sound clean but u wont be heard from a couple blocks away

with my bolt-on mods my cars system overdrives the exhuast so all i hear is music

just giving some advice the reason i like the single 10 inch sub is that is about all your trunk can really use 2 12 inch subs in a ported box takes up a lot of room and the bass wont be very clear or deep and you will rattle you car to pieces one ten in a ported box will hit very deep and still hit the punchy rock stuff with authority and you wont get all the rattles just not enough volume in the trunk

yes a ported box will rattle everything if its ported to nowhere....aka facing the trunk lid lol

but if its ported threw the cab in a custom box
it will hit cleaner than a sealed box could ever,
due to the precise air space to accommodate the sub woofers it will be a deep deep bass and loud. now yes the box could cost you 200-500 depending on what materials you want such as fiberglass amp covers etc wrapped in a certain material
but a custom box will make even the worst subs in the world with the least amount of wats to them sound great.

id only put a regular non ported MDF sub-box in a hatchback due to its airspace is open
it just depends how clean you want your system

a little dynamite never hurt anyone either if its that bad.

but rule of thumb
you can have 1000 bucks into a system
and if you use a ****** box thats not a MDF box it will most likely sound like **** due to not having enough air room for the subs to move. air space is key in building a chest pounding system.
you could have a 500$ setup with a mdf box and it could sub out your 1000 dollar system would hit less harder if you bought a walmart box or made your own sub box ( without the right measurements for air space )

correct me if i stand wrong

also a sealed box is a cheaper alterinative to get bass nice clean bass. but it will lack the in the chest feeling unless it has enough airspace in it

10s/ 12's and 15's all can make your car rattle..

its all about the box and the subs / amp watts
and if you have a power capacitor etc.

what i was trying to say is that the trunk is too small to use as a trunk with a box w/ 2 12s one good thing about using one 10 is the car is small enough for it to really fill with chest pounding bass ( i also have a single 10 inch cvr in my expidition and it is loud) and still be able to use storage space and remove the spare. it sucks when you have to fix a flat in the middle of summer when you are already late and you still have to fight with a speaker box. form meets function.

lol i dont have a spare in mine, i made a sealed box that rests in the spare tire area, i went the cheap route and built myself a good box, i got a 12 in explode rated for 1200 watts and a 1000watt explode amp, which is more then enough, and it sounds just as good as one of my friends who has sunk well over 1k into his stereo, used a cheap store bought box, and i only have 250 into my set up
