    POUND is subjective, 250 is a very small budget for a pair of 12's that will perform well. You can look at aq sdc2.5 at that price range.

    An option to consider - an IB install. One good 10" or 12" in the rear deck could give you what you want. My 85 Oldsmobile Delta-88 is also heavily insulated from the trunk like your Town Car. A pair of 8's in the rear deck did the trick for me.

    Re: Help guys

    If you have the room for a good ported box for two 15s, I'd take the crossfires. You'd probably notice a difference if you put your current subs in a ported box.

    Re: Help guys

    Does that Lincoln have a sealed trunk? I would check that also before dumping more money into the project. In my BMW and Mercedes they seal the trunk to keep road noise out of the cabin in the vehicle. Lincoln is considered luxury and may have sealed the trunk. I would let down the middle console in the rear of car and see if it's completely sealed off. If so you may need to open it up to allow sound to come into the cabin of the vehicle better. Worth a try, but bigger subs is always a good thought.

    Re: Help guys

    i took off the insulation between the back seat and the sheet metal separating the trunk from the cabin, it has like holes i guess in the sheet metal you can see into the trunk now, dam if only i did this alot earlier, i also took off the hard panel that runs along the top of the rear deck i guess, same thing the sheet metal has alot of large fabricated holes, this sounds SO MUCH BETTER, wouldn't mind those extra bmf's and another slash 1000/1 in the trunk haha
