    got system mostly done, need advice on box

    I ended up getting one of the audiobahn A1800DQ mono amps to power my two kicker 12 L7's. There both 2 ohm DVC. I have it wired so i can switch between .5 ohm and 2 ohm. Soo...if you can't do the math, at 2 ohm that's about 600 watts per speaker, and at .5 that's well, like 900+ per speaker.

    Now, what's the best box for these things to make them frickin loud. I have basically the whole trunk of a 96 grand prix

    are these any good:

    Thanks

    Never run the amp at .5 unless its for a burp, and build your own box.

    well sealed will work if u dont have the space but if u have the space go big ported, thats if u want them to get frickin loud make the box as big as u can, and do not run ur amp at .5 ohms unless u have the money to throw away and buy a new one
