i would say a 2.5 cubic foot net box sealed would be a good box for you......my little brother is also stationed at Ft. Campbell. I'll be down there in 2 months to visit him before he redeploys

Ahh, the problem here is that the XXXs really should be in a ported enclosure, and you don't have room in your civic without doing a wall. The 12s sealed need 1.8cuft ( I think) a piece. Usamps.com is REs page, go check the specs.

Poorly worded I guess. I'm not saying there's any problem with them in a sealed enclosure, but to get them loudest you need ported. They're gonna sound good sealed, but they'll be louder ported. It's a moot point anyway, because a proper ported enclosure won't fit, heh. Also I didn't really know, I didn't check myself. And getting an alternator cheap isn't worth it when it ends up not being good

since you have a civic you have tons of options for alts. Iraggi, MCR, Ohio gen, lots of others i just cant remember off hand. just do a search on google for high output alts for your year civic.

You should be fine with 2 g31 batts and one small one under the hood for a decent bank of batts as long as you got a decent alt to charge them. you might want 3 g31's but 2 good ones will most likely suffice.

IIRC the md2d makes 1500 @ 1 ohm. you might want to get some more power to those xxx's especially if your going sealed.
