I also have a single 10" Kicker Comp VT. It is loud. The sound quality is pretty good. It does have a bit of an internal rattle with the sub, but I hear most kickers have that.
Overall I would give it a 7.5/10.
My '97 and your '96 have the same cab dimensions and if you want me to send you the dimensions of my box or amp rack or something just ask.
If I were to redo my system, I would try and find a way to afford and fit in a 12" JL or alpine sub.
