    Biggest problem with the vert is getting a decent size sub box in the trunk. The trunk is shallow and the opening is small. I went with a small wedge style box with a 12" JLW6 (sealed)
    The stock headunit is junk and you won't get good clean sound using it.

    As far as Rockford, they are not the same as they used to be...all their stuff is made in China now :'( good thing i kept my old Punch/Power series amps from the early 90's :dancing6: as i looked on ebay and the old stuff is going for about what it went for new since it was made in the USA.

    My current system is
    Alpine head unit
    2 sets of Boston Acoustic Pro 6.5 Component sets
    1 12" JL Audio W6 sub
    JL Audio 300/4 amp for high/mid
    JL Audio 250/1 amp for the sub.

    this system is great with the top up or down.
