Rear Deck OR Ski Pass

I have been doing a lot of research and a lot of thinking on where I should put my subs. If i put them in the rear deck, I am going to do 2 kicker 10s. If I out it in the ski pass, I am going to do either one kicker L7/L5 10 inch. Any ideas on which setup would be the best bang for my buck/effort?

I think the ski-pass rocks and you can fit a 12" in there. I did the same but in IB fashion with 500W of JL power. The JL amps allows you to model the bass curve to your taste and I think this is mostly important in ski-pass IB setup as the sub is firing direct in the cabin.

If you so decide, remove the rear speakers and pluck out the foam underneath the rear speaker opening. If you want to retain the rear speaker, I would find a 5.25 as this won't cover the entire hole full thus allowing some bass trapped in the trunk to flow into the cabin. Again, I did this and I like it a lot...

Finally, do a search, you won't be disappointed - there is a ton of sub set-ups out here, your budget is the only constraint!

Yeah that is my biggest obstacle. One 12" can cost as much as or more then 2 10"s. I would like to do the skipass option because it not only sounds good, but looks awsome as well. Do you have a simple DIY on how you put the sub in the pass? That is all I need because I am going to have a company do all the wiring for me. I hae done some searching and Everyone says you have to drill holes and cut wood and stuff like that. What did you have to do
