Subs in a foxbody?

Would it be appropriate to put subs in such a nice muscle car

I'm fine with just radio because I have put new speakers in it and I have a nice headunit. I hadn't thought about not being able to hear anything bewtween both the car and speakers being that loud. But I bet it would rattle the piss out of that car

I did this back in high school 10years ago and like it but will probably take it out and down size. Like listening to the car more these days. Plus I miss my trunk space.

Sub-Frame connectors only. The music will come out of the tailpipes and mouths of your adoring admirers.

I put 2 12" kenwoods with a 1800w amp. A little much in my opinion. I'm already bored with them. When my new car gets here I will not use them.

I'd watch mounting amps on box. I had set of 12s and 10s in Beretta with 2 big Rockford amps. You could barely swallow sitting in drivers seat. The bass vibrated couple pieces out of my amp.
I got a stereo in stang but hardly ever turn it up. My friend got in, was like turn it up, I stepped on gas. Told him that's my stereo. Exhaust better than music.

I got 1 audioque hdc3 12" sub in a 2.5 cubes of air box tuned at 34hz. Hifonics Brutus 1200.1 amp pushing it.. Wanting to maybe upgrade to the 1700.1 Brutus.. My sub woofer can handle up to 2k watts steadily..

All I could fit in my trunk.. Flex's my window so I'm happy. My trunk I swears goes up an inch lmao.
