I have one of those boxes except in a single 10" configuration. Its Awesome, but its a little big, mine takes up the area behind my seat.

I got my single box with the sub for only $120. And it can go louder than my brothers dual 10" 800 watt set up when i tune it right, and i only push 240 watts.

Looks like those are discontinued. Good price, dunno if you could get any warranty with them. The new upgrades are $10 more. check em out here:

How were you able to tell they were discontinued? Also Im looking at getting 2 12's. What amp would I need to run them? Does it relate to the watts of the sub?

I've had good luck with Kicker & Rockford Fosgate subs, in fact I still have my first set of 12" rockfords & my first 15" Kicker sub & they all sound as good now as they did 15+ years ago when I got them.
Never heard Kenwood subs, although I'm running Kenwood 2 & 3 way 5x7/6x8's in my truck & they sound great.

look at the RMS of the subs and try and equal that to the RMS of the amp.

ex. two 500watt RMS subs... get a 1000watt RMS amp.

dont look at max. it dont mean shit.

kinda like max hp/torque to the flywheel......its to the wheels that matters the most. only analogy i can think of.

Click this link to another discount audio online store. They list those Kenwood Subs as discontinued. Nothing wrong with getting discontinued items at all. esp if it saves you a buck or two.
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...KFC-W3012.html

As far as an AMP, just taking a quick look. Try this one on for size.
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...-D1-3000D.html
Good amp to get some punch out of your subs. fits in your wattage range for your subs too. and its affordable. While it isnt designed for high end competition, it should do the job nicely.

As far as the box, I am currently sizing my ranger up for pretty much the same box. Those subs you found will work just fine in the box you have. They fit in the specs as far as cubic feet required.

You should be thumpin pretty good time you get all of that put together

Go with this amp:
http://cgi.ebay.com/AUDIOPIPE-AP1500...item53e675d9cc

Get Dual 2 ohm subs, wire them all up to get a final 2 ohm load, hook em up to that amp and she'll put out roughly 1k watts. I would choose Audiopipe over Power Acoustik any day. Take my advice on car audio. You'll thank me later.
