    I do not know the condition of your truck, but as far as doing a blowthrough, personally, I would look into doing a color matched fiberglass camper shell type of build. Remove the rear window and the actual box can be big enough to fill the whole bed, or whatever.. and then the only thing keeping you from returning the truck to stock condition is putting the rear window back in.

    You should weigh in the automatic depreciation of the vehicle when you design your system. If the loss in resale value caused by cutting up the bed and cab significantly outweighs the cost of a used fiberglass camper shell painted to match, then why do it?

    If you are wanting to do a Bandpass design, the choice of driver will be decided by the box and required power handling. And with a bandpass design, sq is not determined by the driver anyways. It is strictly determined by the box (port).

    Id also second the Q. Load them up with all cooling options, and throw them around 1500w each. I know for a fact you can fit 4 15s in an S10 and get some killer sound.

    ps..you can expect a higher impedance rise that is inherent to a bandpass design...just a FYI

    Are you sure it's the right website? Let's check our references here before we make any rash decisions.
