    you have to know the specs of your sub. post the model numbers and what not and maybe the installers here can help you

    it'll depend on the sub itself

    grab winisd PRO and see if it has the specs, and design your box there.

    you'd be fine with .5 or .6 if your going to have them in a sealed box. or go with about .9 approx for ported.
    ...don't expect that those things are going to pound or anything, specialy in a del sol, with the firewall between the trunk, and and the rest of the car.

    surfertech - no i am not using home theatre subs. the box that it was in looks like a home theatre system but it is not.

    12v - yeah i think im going to be making a sealed box. i am putting the subs behind my seat because of the firewall.

    azn_sol - what kind of amp are you using? i figure that 2 12" wold be pretty loud.
