I was planning on doing that originally, I was going to do just the one 10 inch sub but I would have made the box ported and both the amps would have been mounted on it. It would have looked sweet but I didn't want to take up floor space. So I went for a more compact approach and I think I like this better now.

I had built the box myself out of 1/2 and 3/4 MDF, I'm sure they sell a box specifically for the ford ranger similiar to mine somewhere online but I have the tools and decided to save some money and make it myself. Its sealed and is about .66 cu ft.

Yeah, I at first was going to have zero floor space. I bought a Memphis Audio Mojo 15 inch sub that I was going to put in my truck. The box was going to take up half of the cab space in the back of my truck though, so I sold it. I would have gone deaf if that thing was in my truck though.

So far a Kenwood. I'm getting Kenwood speakers put in as I speak because the old ranger speakers are going. Driver speaker was already blown. He showed me the old one it got water in it and was just garbage . These are deff gonna give it a clearer more quality sound

Do you know if I would change my head unit (factory) to another kind like your kenwood. Would it make a difference using the factory speakers?

You will see some difference, but upgrading the speakers will give you a bigger difference than replacing the head unit. The stock speakers suck really bad.

A head unit with stock speakers will give some change though not much . But aftermarket speakers will give a dramatic change haha

My old ranger speakers were garbage.

The factory size 6x8 will work fine.
