Default Sub and amp suggestions

Currently I'm running two 12s in a shitty Ebay box with an old amp. I was given everything but the box by a good friend so I couldn't pass up the deal. I think I want to start working on the sound now and have a couple of questions.

The amp I have is HUGE. I'm not sure on power output, but physically it is very large. Can anyone suggest an amp that could run a single 12 but is relatively small in physical size? I know the first question will be: what sub? I don't know, I'm open to suggestions on that as well. The only thing I have nailed down is that the sub will be in a Fox Acoustics box under the passenger side rear seat.

My Alpine amp is pretty small and puts out 500W.

Kennwood amps are pretty small, and have good power. Small enough where I have a kennwood and another amp in my truck comfortably.
Sub wise, I personally love the sound of my l5 in my truck. You can get a box to fix that for your truck easily. Also,Look up kicker cvr and see if you like it. Cvr's are good subs with small amountsof power needed. My buddy has that in his QC and it sounds great! Just some suggestions

i'm running a 1000.5 with a CVX. LOVE it, but if I wasn't powering my doors I'd go with a 400.1 / CVR. Thats what I had in my last truck, worked pretty nice too

I'm running the Alpine PDX-M6 with the Type-R 12" sub in the Fox box and it is perfect for my needs.

The sub is 600RMS max and the amp is 600 watt RMS so it was a perfect fit. I would love to get rid of the factory Head Unit and replace with aftermarket... Like the $1,500 one we talked about Dave So that I can tweak the sound way more than with the stock settings.

I still need to rip out all the door speakers, tweats and roof speakers and replace with better speakers but....... I have a $2,700 product that i'm saving up for

I had a Soundstream digital amp and a JL 12" in my Integra.....amp was a beast and maybe 10 X 8 X 2
Get a DVC sub and run a mono amp at 2 ohms

P1.600D

I've got a l5 on a 1600x2 I run about 1300 watts on it and it slams. Cvx are damn good subs too! Look into that or cvr. Best sub for the buck

all comes down to money and how much you want to spend and what exactly you are looking for ... i could throw out numerous different setups but it's all dependent on cost and what kind of sound you are looking for..
