    alright guys, building a box

    alright fellas I am starting to build my box for my 2 K's


    I am thinking that I am going to go ported. I have the entire bed of my truck to play with and am needing to know what to tune it to. I am thinking maybe 2 cubes per sub plus port, am I way off here or does this sound right.

    I am also looking for a amp to run them. believe they are 500 rms or 6. what amp will put these to business. thanks for any input. looking to stay within the 350 mark for the amp. thanks
