this speaker is big, i think it has a 1400 peak wattage on it so keep that in mind. Anybody who has had experience with this speaker please get at me.

Look at the instructions or contact the manufacturer for recommended enclosure. If there are different "recommended" options (i.e. bandpass, sealed, ported, etc), then it depends on what type of music you listen to, what type of bass response you like and how much space you are willing to sacrifice. I am personally into sound quality, so I prefer sealed boxes.

As far as power, get as much as you can afford!

Edit: Also, for location, generally in sedans either do a custom box in the corner of the trunk or behind the seat facing backwards. If you are going with bandpass, then the best option will most likely be to have the port right at the ski pass.

thanx for the help, I found the link to infinity that offers all the info you all may need. According to them I can use the enclosure of my choice. I would like a big sound and I listen to hip hop, but I also want it to look good so I am open to any suggestions. Please reccomend some specefic amps that would be good to buy. I dont want to spend more than about 600 for an amp.
some details:
Power Handling, Peak: 1400W
Power Handling, RMS: 350W
Sensitivity: 96dB (In car)
Frequency Response ( 1.5dB): 18Hz - 150 Hz
Frequency Response (3dB): 18Hz - 150Hz
Impedance: 4 Ohms
Mounting Depth: 6-1/2"

Does anyone have a setup where the bandpass is ported through the ski pass as explained here, if so please put up some pics.
