Yeah I seldom ever really crank them anymore. Hell, my truck I haven't even put the 'big' speakers IN in over a year. I have a dual 12" ported box that sits behind my 3rd row, or I can put in another box with 3 monster 15s in 9 cubic feet if I remove the rear seats. It still sits behind the 2nd row and below the windows. But... I just don't use it much.
