Quite possibly one of the broadest question threads I've seen. If your going to get rid of them, how much room do you want to use? Budget? Preferences? Power?

Make up your mind.
We cant make these decisions for you. If you like your backseats and want a little room to carry groceries or other bull$hit, okay
if not, then so be it.
But how big is your amp?
Do you like the 12's or would you rather go to a couple 15's or down to a couple tens?

It must be above wheel wells then, I had 2 15" l7's in 7ft 3 6" ports and was right around the 152 mark sealed legal on music. I'm sure with better subs you could do more.

Otherwise, keep your 12's, build a wall.
