    Are you a Short Person? Is so great. if not you will HATE it.

    I am tall 6.1, I have a Box made for the my Reg Car with a signle 10. I lost way to much room. But the 10 hits Really hard and really good.

    2 12 is way over kill for a truck this size. Unless this is a show truck you are waisting your time and money....

    Later on i will get a Pick of my Box...

    I will second that unless you are a midget or into some serious modification of the vehicle; that there is no way to build a box behind the seat of that truck and meet the specs of those subs.

    get a single 12 inch kicker l7 its got to be the best subwoofer out there, i had a jl w6, 2 10 inch kickers and punch subs. the single l7 beats all of them out, it has the surface area of a 15 inch its 750 wats rms, which is significantly higher then the other subs, i have the l7 in my access cab and had to reinforce and dynamat everything because it was just separating the door panels

    I disagree that it is the perfect amount of bass. Try and find a similar setup to what you are looking for and give it a listen. I am not a fan of stillwater designs build of speakers (the subs in particular). I have found that the L7 design does get hella loud in similar situations as other drivers, but it sounds like a muddy fart on a humid day. :D

    I have heard some that sound pretty good, but the overall acoustic preformance is does not meet my ear's sweet spot. Also, check out thier website for technical data on the driver you are interested so that you can build the correct enclosure for your needs.
