2) 8" Rockford Fosgate HE Subwoofers
Like others I was in search of more bass. I weighed the options and elected to install the 8" woofers in the rear deck. I removed the factory sheet metal deck and fabricated a replacement from 3/4" MDF (medium density fiberboard) with a 1/4" sheet of wood on top to get a total of 1". I recessed the holes for the mounting screws using the factory locations (get longer 6mm screws). The woofer locations were also recessed so that the woofers would be below the top surface. Once installed I stuff some foam into any openings to help give a sealed enclosure. Now remove the padding from the carpet that would go over this board. Lay the carpet back down and you will never know that they are there. The factory carpet buttons will not be used. You will have to get some upholestry srews/hardware of your liking to refasten it. Also, get some 8" speaker grills and lay them over your speakers to protect them. The cover panels at the seatbelt will be trimmed slightly.!
EXCELLENT sound! More then average I would say. The best part is that it looks exactly the same as before you started and can be easily reverted back to stock. You will need to be somewhat skilled to take this challenge on.

10" subwoofer in Q-logic truck box - sealed. $70 for the sub, $50 for the box.
Very good. Take out the spare tire and this box fits right in its place. Sounds good. Does not rattle the car, but you can feel it. If you want annoy those outside the car as much as you want to be able to hear it yourself, you won't be happy. Likewise if you want a dance club on wheels, this isn't the setup for you. But if you want to add an adequate amount of kick to most types of music, retain the majority of your already meager trunk space, and not pay a whole lot, you'll be satisfied.
