what are you looking to spend? how do you plan to use the car? doing a wall clamshell, regular box? size subs wanted? give us some more to work with. personally I like to do single sub setups that blow the 2 12s and 2 15s guys out of the water but hey its your world. anyway give us some details and we will give you our opinions and plenty of nuthuggery will be shared.

1.) Audiobahn Immortal - Immaculate sound reproduction and the flames make it louder. Get as many of them as you can fit. Make sure the box is sealed. Some 1/2" plexi on the front would look sweet too.

2.) Boss Audio amplifier - You're going to need at least one of these per subwoofer. They could probably hand 2 per subwoofer but that make do a 170dB and shatter glass. Do not want that. These are top of the line and the newest technology available.

3. OSB - A builder's best friend. Be sure to get at LEAST 1/4" OSB from Home Depot, Menards or a similar store. It's the best material for subwoofer enclosures. Offers an extremely strong design & because of the glue in the panel it's said to be 15x as strong as a 2x4 of similar size.

4. Get some nails, a hammer & get to work. This thing won't build itself.

Nevermind the resident pros they were car audio prodigies never a beginner. Best thing I could tell you is forget the cheap route you get what you pay for. Although that don't means higher is better. Check sound solutions audio the have a good selection of products off the main stream radar. Also check the build logs and read the stickies a lot of good information is available here to help know what to look for in terms of specs and quality brands. Get informed and know what you want before your waste your money.
