    -custom ported box that will still allow me to put stuff in my truck (i.e. two decent size suitcases when I'm traveling)
    -i like to listen to my music pretty loud, especially when i have all the windows rolled down i like to crank it up as much as my speakers allow me before SQ becomes an issue especially with my stock speakers. But i generally listen to a variety of rap, Hip hop, dubstep, and house music.
    -for subwoofers I'm looking for a sub thats loud and clean that will put a little more 'oomph' in the bass compared to the two i have now(two Alpine type-e's in a sealed box). I don't need a sub thats just gonna rattle the heck out of my car if you know what i mean. Also, Im looking for a sub that produces good SPL but also great SQ. one thing i like is some good SQ, I'm not looking for a sub thats just gonna blow my brains out and shake all my windows and doors, but definitely one that will still pound (more than two i have now) and produce good audio.

    Anything is better than Type E's

    I love my VVX15, I would say for your G35 get maybe 1 VVX8, since you trunk is already small the 8 won't take up much for your suitcases.

    ^This, I'm sure it'll be just the right size (8") anything bigger and I think you'd lose more space than wanting (I've seen a G35 trunk).

    I have seen the g35 coupe trunk, but not the sedan. I would assume the sedan trunk is a bit bigger?

    I know dealers/builder won't recommend going over rated, I'm current going over rated on my VVX15 by like 1000rms handles it like a champ.

    Re: Subs Subs Subs

    You are going to need to throw a lot of power at an 8 to be louder then your Alpines since they have the advantage of cone area... Id look at the new Sundown V2, DD 2508, Or like I said I have an 8 that should take around 1500rms daily...
