one 12w3 to stealthbox?

guys help me decide! now i have one 12w3 but still stuggling if i should pay the $400cdn diff to get a stealthbox. first money doesnt matter that much, the thing is that i think it sounds like crap when i mute the back speaker. and also now i feel like at low volume i can hardly hear the bass and people said with a box is not as clear(i dont have fold down seats). i really dont want to go with a 2 10" because it will take up my whole trunk. what should i do?i only have one week to exhange so have to decide quickly. should i change to a more bass better sub box? or get the stealthbox and lose the back speakers?

I've never heard anyone's system with subwoofers in a box in the back, but what you'll see if you read the old posts is that our trunks are very well insulated, so if you want a lot of bass, you either need to punch a hole in the ski pass through or you need to make more bass -- or both.

I have the Stealthboxes (replace the mids in the rear deck) and have been very pleased with them, especially for the money and not having to give up space in our already cramped trunk.

If you want to shake windows for several zip codes, they might not be enough bass for you, so depends on your ultimate goal.
Better picture coming!
