how its going to look:

its a flush with trunk floor, spare tire well install. its going to be painted same color as my car i already have all the stuff to prep for paint ! im putting metal bars across the top to support the carpet + w/e things i put ontop.

i need to make mdf rings for the subs and rings for removable ports and a 2nd amp rack for subs, depending on which i get

now i need help help with.....

i have 2.2 cubes to work with, i need shallow mount subs, could i fit 2x 10" ported or a do i have to go with a 12" ported. im leaning toward ported because i like to tune low.
shallow subs req. less cubes right? clarion only req .75 for there 10's, kicker req. 1.25-1.75

what would be good choices?
basically loudest i can get

I would go with a single 12" since the ports are going to take up some of that airspace. A single CVT in 1.7 cubes tuned to 30hz should sound ok and get decently loud. Getting the port to the correct length may be difficult though.

was thinking 12" cvt too, i think in the end thats what im going with, im worried it wont be loud enough, im going to try to squeeze out more .cubes

what is mininium cubes i need for 2x 10" cvt @ 32hz? or any other choices of 10"

but port is no problem to fit, im going to do it diagnal facing the rear of car
since its fiberglass i can make a gap under the port so airflow isnt interupted

Are you going for multiple round ports or a single slot port?

The smallest I would go with the 10s would be about 1.2 cubes each tuned to 30hz. I don't think you really have the room for two CVTs. And actually, I think I would do closer to 2 cubes for the 12"

yea seems im going with a 12 lol thanks for the help,
should i go
kenwood (i got a kenwood indash and looks alot better imo)
mb quart

i get em all at about same price. and which can handle the most power (not rated cause i know cvt has to be able to handle more then 400rms)
