I currently have a nice SQ setup, but I'm looking to improve my low end.
I have a 1995 Honda Civic DX 2 Door.

Cheap Bassworx prefab box from BestBuy
I've been debating on building a new box, or buying an AudioEnhancers box since I don't really have the space, or tools to build my own box. I have a Brother in Law that works at a cabinent shop so I could build my own but don't want to have to ask if you know what I mean.
I have about 16" of height clearance in my trunk so that kind of limits what I can put in the rear. I could sqeeze a 17" high box back there if need be. I'd love to upgrade to a 15" if I could get it in the trunk.
I'm thinking about changing amps to an Alpine MRX-M100 which would give me ~1kw to play with. I used to run PPI amps back in the day but I've seen where they're not the same company any more and look like junk now IMO.
The Subs I've been looking at are::.
-PSI 12″/15" Platform 1
-RE Audio SXX15D4 / SXX12D4
-RE Audio SEX15D4 / SEX12D4
-Sundown Audio SA12 / SA15 dual 4
-SKAR Audio VVX-12D4 / VVX-15D4
There are some others I've looked at but can't think of them all ATM.
I'd like to stay around $2-300 on the Sub. I'm looking to spend around $6-700 on everything and I can get the Alpine MRX-M100 for $200. I'm not wanting to go too big because then I'll have to upgrade everything else, and currently the system sounds great just could use a little more low end.
I am planning on running 0ga. to the rear, and if I do I may isolate another battery in the trunk. I'd rather have too much clean power then not enough. Plus I listen to the radio w/ the car off often.
