OK. I own a 2000 firebird. I can build a box for subs myself. I need an idea of what the best subs would be for the most bass. I'm young and like hip hop and LOUD bass. I want to wake the neighborhood basically. Space is the problem. I have room to build a box with 10 inch height, 39 inch width, and 16 inch depth. This allows me 2.6 cu ft of volume.
I need to know what the best setup would be to get the most bass out of this space. I'm looking at spending under 200 for the sub (or subs). And I already have an amp.
Once again... I'm looking for advice on which size and brand sub(s) would be best for this area.
Thanks for your replies.

you want to wake the neighborhood but don't want to take up much space??
Those two terms don't go together at all...with 2.6 cu ft gross volume you can do a single 12 ported or a single 15 sealed. Won't "wakt the neighborhood" but will be some decent bass
There is no replacement for displacement

A nice single ported 12" would be adequately loud in that space. Ofcourse ... need to know what RMS ur amp is giving.

OK.  I'm running an MTX amp.  I'm wanting to push it down to 2 ohm... so I need either two subs or a single DVC.  The RMS is 775 watts at 14.4  (I have a 1.5 farad cap to hook into the system)

A ported 12" L5 might do the trick for you. Dual 4ohms so you can wire it parellel for a 2ohm load.

There might be better options so check the one I suggested and a few others that the members here will suggest and take your desicision from that.
