Where did you buy that "audiophile" box? I am looking to retain as much space as possible.

freemind Get the subthump box and a JBL p1022 or, p1024(depending on what amp you will be using)with about .25 lbs of polyfill in the box.

You will be very, very happy.

Tom-E09 yeah before my amp decided to die i just had a single 10" in the trunk (i listen to alot of screamo, metal, and dubstep) the sound inside was just what i wanted. Enough bumpo for me to hear/ feel it without anyone outside knowing i had a sub. And it handled the dirty bass from the dubstep like a champ. Im about to get 2 10" to go in there now. I got a bigger box (but thats cause my buddy just upgraded his subs and is giving me the ole ones

If you decide to go with subs, especially if you are going to an aftermarket deck, the stock sub and amp would be a major pain to put in. You'd be better off going aftermarket. And just because you have a sub doesn't mean you have to have a super expensive or insanely loud system. Just go with a 10", and get one that is maybe 200-300 watts rms. That will be plenty of the average person just wanting some nice low end.

Another solution would be to go with say the subthump or even the stock sub enclosure, then put in a nice 10", and then get your 200-300 watt amp, and mount it under the passenger seat. I had mine like this for 2 years. A small amp will sit there fine, not interferer with the seat or leg room, and keeps it out of sight, and saves space.

the stock SVT sub is plenty if you are just looking for a little boost to the punch.

The best place to find them is in the buy-sell-trade forums, they pop up every now and then (i think there are a few right now actually).

If you decide to go with stock equipment and need an amp, let me know, i have one ill let go for cheap.

*Thin injection molded plastic (not the best sound quality)
*Limited airspace and mounting space for upgrading woofer
*Make sure you find the enclosure, plus the carpet facade piece as well.

But they are a super clean and easy installation.

Now if you were planning on using the stock sub, amp, and enclosure, you need the wiring for the car, and that gets to be very labor intensive, but just using the enclosure is very easy.
