    Buying in 2 days.. i need all your help

    Alright, after reading on here I have basically decided what I wanna do. But there are still many things that I am either overlooking or am uncertain about, and perhaps some of you can help me out. I have narrowed the setups to 2 possibilities:

    2 12" Rockford Fosgate He subs (200 rms), and a RF 360x2 amp.
    or
    2 12" Rockford Fosgate He2 subs (400rms), and a RF 800x2 amp

    I am leaning toward the second one because I have the money and the He2's sounded so nice when I listened to them. However, I have some concerns. My friend said that those subs will blow all of my seals in my trunk, so I would have some hardcore rattle (no good). Do you guys believe this would be a problem? (99 ford escort zx2) Also, would I need to spend a lot of money on soundproofing or could I get by without all that? Would I need to upgrade battery or add any other electrical items?

    I really wanna go with the better setup, but not if its gonna rattle my car and sound like ***. I am leaning more toward spl, but still I don't want it to just sound awful. I am DECIDED on a sealed box to salvage a little sq. Also, what would be the best way to direct my subs? Should I just have them fire toward the back of the trunk, or would it be better to drop my backseat and have them fire into the cabin? Would that save my trunk seals? I am gonna talk to the guy at the shop too, but I really need help from you guys on all of this. Here is what else I have too... take that into account.

    JVC Reciever $180 and JVC 12 disk changer
    Inexpensive Kenwood 6 1/2 fronts and Kenwood 6x8 3 way rears
    99 Ford Escort Zx2

    oh yeah by the way i just noticed your in lexington, i have my two he2s the one i just talked about in the small sealed box still i kept them just incase i ever wanted to go back to them, if you would be interested i could give you a good deal on the box and the subs and i could meet you some where and let you listen to them. just an idea.

    I am only going to be payin 109 a piece at Ikesound for new ones so I am not interested man. But thanks a lot. So they sound good? They don't rattle the **** outta your trunk do they? What kind of car you drive? I really want some he2's and I will get them as long as I know they won't sound like rattling *** in my trunk.

    Everyone else chime in... i need to hear opinions and ideas

    well the trunk does or did rattle but ive dont a few things to stop it, i have an accord by the way, i have used expanding spray foam insualation on the truck lid to fill in the big spaces and to fill in better the 2 seperate layers of the trunk. also i used a dynamat type stuff on the walls and floor of the trunk. but anyway yeah those speakers are lous you will like them.

    Can someone tell me the best way to install using 2 he2's and a RF Power 750s amp? The amp is good for 375x2 @ 2 ohms. Can I wire my subs to 2 ohms and then send 375 rms to each? That would be a nice setup right?

    If that is gonna be no problem, then I will likely do it. Just gotta spend even more money on dynomat and sound deadening stuff now to keep the rattling down
