I thought about doing two subs, in the place of the jump seats. I'm decent at fiberglass work, but I just got intimidated by messing with all that stuff and figuring out how big the boxes would have to be for the subs I used. I sometimes regret not trying it out, especially since my current box is too small for my sub.

You could toss your subs parameters into some enclosure design software, then adjust the volume a decent chunk either way and determine what your range of acceptable output is. You'll find most enclosures can be fairly forgiving.
A sub that asks for. 75 cubes sealed may do quite well in anything from. 5 - 1.25 and possibly even more.

Don't be discouraged because someone says your sub needs exactly x amount of airspace, it's more like x amount +/- 20% or so.

Go with a ported enclosure, and have even more leniency with your airspace.
Chances are, if you're good with fiberglass, you'll come out with an exceptional product anyways.

Yes, and with a sealed enclosure, the larger you can go, the deeper bass you can get, usually. (Depends on the sub also.)

Well, that was fun. My first legal 160, first 160 in all 3 locations (dash, kick, and headrest), 155 @ 28hz 153 @ 26hz... Now time to build something different.

Thanks! I've been kicking myself ever since I started taking it apart. Never been attached to a setup in the past but this one did everything I wanted. New build will be started shortly, should be pretty intense
