Get some powerful 10 or 12" woofers, that aren't too deep, and get some that work in a smaller sealed box

i will be doing 3 rockford 12" subs this summer i play golf and need room for clubs and other chit that i have back there here is an example of the box that I will build this summer

are trunks are big to begin with and that is a bonus!!

as for the dvd i suggest that you buy a headuint that has a flip up screen or get a roof mounted unit. If youi have a moonroof this may be more of a challenge

If you want trunk space... you could just get a pair of 300w Pioneer self powerd bass tubes.. throw off alot of bass for the money and youll have tons of space left.

For the dvd screens I would go with the flip down just because its so much easier. If you dont mind doing the work for the headrests go ahead
