    Damn man that's too much. I would only put them in if you do sound competitions...otherwise just buy and resell them.

    I see the sub's airspace and depth requirements as problems, assuming you want to keep the stock interior intact.... Not sure if you can make a box with sufficient airspace for 2 15s, also, from what I've seen the most sub depth for behind the seats is 6".

    Lunar 1500, 12 inch DD audio sub in a probox, panasonic cq-c700u, hopefully more mods to come in time.
    I had 2 15's in my 2001 DC. Its possible if you dont mind turning your 4 door truck into a coupe. Gotta sacrifice those backseats. Haha

    Yeah, the backseat would become obsolete. IF I do buy them and install I would be eligible for a local competition crew and would use them for personal pleasure and competition. My only problem would be with the windows. I can' t go bustin' those on my salary.

    Your windows will be fine. You'd need an insane amount of power and cone area in order to push enough air to crack / break your windows.

    If you feel like sacrificing your backseat, rock them. Hell, build a wall for them!

    But as usual, worthles without pics so keep us posted!

    The wall would be another issue. I want to be able to be able to take them out and sell them before I trade in, total it, or just plain get tired of them. I was thinking more of just a box on top of the back seat with each sub on either end and the amps in the middle on a rack.

    i just got one 12" but the box is huge! i put downt the 2 seats in the back but left the seat backs up and the box fits perfect. Maybe you could do this with the whole rear seat or jsut take the whole seat out
