It's a reg cab, so the sound's gonna be muffled by the seat anyway...

Got a box picked out or are you building one? Some may require a shallow sub. That severly limits your sub choices.

Of your list, I LOOOOOOVE the Kicker CompVR's.

If i was you i would visit your local pawn shop and check out all of the stolen goods they have to offer. I got a kicker amp and a Keenwood sub and box for 130 out the door and it hit pretty good, i only have like 250 watts going to it too.

You're being to vague, what you need to look for is prices, size, power handling, power input from an amp, 1 or 2 subs, etc.

What kind of music do you listen to? If you listen to rap, look for a high xmax (12-15mm) if you're more into rock anything less will do (4-10mm).

^Yes building your own box will probably be cheaper, and over all better, however $100 will probably not get you subs.
Do you already have an aftermarket deck?

I got my 2 10"s for 90 shipped. I'd say look around for shallow mounts.

^yea but that's all he'll get. he needs a box (MDF, Carpet, any tools you don't have, screws, silicone, glue, terminals) an amp, and an amp kit.
definitely not going to find all the for <$10 lol

But you said subs, not everything else, lol. I'd say shallow mounts and build your own box.

i just found a 2 8" subwoofer box on ebay. Will 2 8" subwoofers sound good for my regular cab. The measurements are L=15 1/4, BW=7 1/4, TW= 5, and the height is 11.

I have a Pioneer 12" shallow mount on the way. I got it for pretty cheap (70.00) here :
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+TS-SW301.html

I'm going with a shallow mount to save quite a bit of room. I have a regular mount 10" right now that keeps my seat too cloes to the steering wheel. The reviews for this product look pretty good too. I'll let you know how it sounds whenever I get it put in.
