    have amp and sub box already

    This is going under the rear seat of a Dodge 4 door truck.
    I lifted the seat 4" and made a box under there. I have 3.75 cubic feet. The box is completely sealed. But porting IS an option if needed. I listen to every thing. I mean ever thing. Classic, wrap, country, pop, Spanish, hard rock. Mostly pop country and Spanish.

    My amp for the subs is a Kicker Kx1200.1. I plan on upgrading the rest of the system later. I already have (2) KICKER kx 600.4 to run ever thing else. I also have 2 1.2 caps.

    I would like some 12s. But if I 10s would be better suited then I could do that also. I have looked at the kicker solo baric L7 and the Alpine SWR-1242D Type Rs and the infinity 12s (forgot what they are).

    Suggestion or recommendations?
    Thanks

    here is a link to the pics. My gallery doesnt do short urls. So the pics dont always show up if I hot link them. The amp is supposed to be good to 1 ohm.

    thats not my box. I just saved the pics for an idea.
    I still need to cover and finish the box. In the pics you only see the top. In page one you can see the bottom, minus the fiber glass bottoms.

    Ill see if the pics work here. In this pic you can see the bottom. I fiberglassed the "bowl" areas of the truck, to make the bottom of the box.


    Sorry the pics only show up as links.

    Re: have amp and sub box already

    would/should I port the box with those? Is that enough amp for the new subs? I can sure wait. I kinda ran low on funds. SO another 2 months would be greeat. ANd the box should be covered and look a lot nicer.
    here it is just befor being finished.
