Will these Subwoofers fit?

I have 2 12" Kicker L7 subwoofers and a 1500 watt Kicker amp and was wondering if they would fit in the trunk of my camaro? Does anyone have the square L5 or L7's in there car?

I was looking on your site and went to the Camaro Sub Boxes and couldn't locate the box for the L7's.

Do these subs sound better in a ported or sealed box??

Ported will give you louder bass, Sealed gives you a deeper bass. If I am incorrect someone please clarify.

I don't know that I would use the word deeper to describe a sealed enclosure. I think maybe tighter would be more appropriate.

The main drawback to ported boxes is they typically need to be larger than their sealed counterpart. In the Camaro, this can be tricky to pull off. The sealed box we offer is the largest custructed box that will fit into the car period. Trust me, we tried to build them larger but they don't fit. The only way to get a larger box into the car is to build it in two sections and install one at a time. I have yet to do this, but we might give it a shot soon before I trade my coupe in. The downside to a larger cabinet is they take up more space and weigh more. So ultimately, you have to decide if filling up your trunk and weighing the car down for a few more dB's of output is worth it.
