I have a pair of 12 inch L5's on a kicker 1200.1 amp. The subs handle the power with no problem. The stats on the L5's and L7's are almost the same.

I cut the whole deck out with a sawzall. It is cut too each side, down to the floor, and all the way to the window. It took about an hour. The front of the box has the brackets too hold the seat now. And I cover that fits the top of the box also fits to the seat, window, and sides. The down side is the trunk rods had to come out.

for a single sub you could maybe just cut a big enough hole for it too peek thru. But a fifteen might be too big. My 12's are as far back as they can go becuase there is alot of bracing that runs along the bottom of the window that should never be cut out. But your car maybe different. My seat is moved forward 1 1/2 inches to make the 12's fit.

damn i dunno if i can do that, ill have to look.

if i cant im thinkin bout facin it towards the tail lights...BUT the back of the box will be against the back bracing of the rear seat...THEN before the trunk opens up and get big(right after bottom of rear window) ill build a wall to cut it off....im hoping to achieve the same great bass i get now, but eliminate A LOT of the rattling and gain more SQ and maybe spl :dunno:

just no more rattles :(

ive pretty much given up on trying to get rid or all the rattles. ill do some basic shit like getting my liscence plate and trim to stop rattling but thats about it. if you can hear the rattles inside then its not loud enough!

I would get the Kicker L7'S. I have 3 of them being pushed by (2) 1200.1 linked together in a sealed box which resides in the trunk of my 95 IMPALA SS. You can check my setup out on my web site which is as follows:
