You can do the flush mount in the trunk if you know how to fiberglass, it looks really trick if done properly. I do however, recommend the top of that be MDF since it'll be a flat panel (fiberglass isn't that strong when it isn't curved) The L7s are pretty good for SPL, but IMO for better SQ and SPL, other subs such as the Resonant Engineering X.X.X. is a better investment. Square subs suffer from a lot of design issues because of uneven stress points on the subwoofer.

i want a different install than the normal box sitting in the trunk install....i was thinkin about getting a fiberglass enclosure, or possibly doing something with the back seat...like...cutting out a spot, and mounting the box like, the front of the sub is flat with the back seat...ya know what i mean?

You have to email their sales dept at www.reaudio.com, it'll have a link for sales on there. Weigh out your options, as there are many out there that are just as good. As far as price, it depends on size, here's a list:
X.X.X 10- $395
X.X.X 12- $405
X.X.X 15- $435
X.X.X 18- $475

Stores carry them, but not specific chain stores or anything to my knowledge. If you email sales they can tell you the closest dealer that has their products. 1 12 is more than enough, and they're louder than the equivalent size L7. As far as amp, it depends on your budget, a JBL 1200.1 can push them well and is around $300 or less. Depends on the enclosure you use as well, if you want loud I'd recommend ported.

alright, that sounds good...what about 2 of them..haha...how much would an amp to push that cost? if i can get 2, the more the better i guess, and my budget is gonna be around 2200

2200 just for subs and an amp? Plenty of options. Two of them would be even better for SPl, BUT remember that with any amount of power that high, you'll need to consider a high output alternator to power the system. Two 12" X.X.X.'s would be 800, say 850 after shipping, add another 150 for the box to be conservative (or fiberglass materials and MDF, etc.). An Eclipse DA7232 is a great amp that puts out 1000W RMS x 2 at 2 ohms, $1199 on www.woofersetc.com Remember with that amp, you HAVE to get the voice coil upgrade on RE's subs, you'll need to get a dual 1 ohm version(normally dual 2 ohm). Doesn't cost any more if I remember correctly.

and i mean, i would like to end up with a little bit left over, so i mean...1 of those should be enough to be felt in my car and around the neighborhood right?..because right now i have 2 kenwood POS subs, and a crappy RF amp, and i want something that is signifigantly better than those...whats the RMS on the X.X.X. sub

1600, but that's the thermal rating. It typically doesn't need over 1000 to reach full excursion, depending on the box. One is plenty, if you want even more then consider a ported box. If you do one sub, then any amp putting out around 1000W RMS is good, such as the JBL 1200.1. You'd still have plenty left over for other upgrades. Alternator cost depends on vehicle, www.mralternator.com has a lot of them and typically they're between $200 and $300, some are less than 200.
