Need advice and some help

Hi There

Here is what I have installed in my car.
Alpine CDA 9855
Focal 165V component set in the front doors
Focal 165V component set in the rear
Alpine 4 ch amp running fronts and rears pretty sure it is 60 watts X 4
Rockford Fosgate BD1501 used to be running a pair of Clarion 10" subs in a prefab sealed box. I somehow blew both subs at the same time so I currently have a 12" RE sub in a prefab ported box that doesnt sound very good.

I spent quite a bit of time tuning the system in my car after I installed it last year and it sounded sooooo good that I would go for long drives in the middle of the night just so I can listen to the system. At the time I had a pair of Clarion 10's and I loved the way it sounded until I blew them.

I recently had some work done to my car and they disconnected my battery and all my setting on the Alpine deck reset back to factory. I totally forgot about writing all the settings down and now the system sounds like crap and I can never get it to sound as good as it did.

Now this is where I could use some advice. The Clarion 10's subs that I had are now discontinued or else I would have purchased another pair. Now I have no clue what I should go with as a replacement. I would really appreciate some advice on a pair of 10's and also if there is someone on the board who would be interested in helping me tune and possibly even help me build a new box for my trunk. I can very easily install anything but the only problem I have is building boxes. I suck at it big time. I am willing to provide food and lots of beer for anyone who would be interested in helping me with this project.

The car is and 08 Corvette Convertible and I live in Oakville.

Thanks :-)
