Question 04 Dodge ram 1500 audio project.

Hey guys. So, I think this is actually my first post, but I bought an olderish dodge last spring and I've been wanting to work on it. It's nothing special, just a 1500 ram with pretty much no bells or whistles. It actually still had a cassette player before I threw in a different deck. So, my next step is I want to replace the speakers, and add bass to the truck.

Now, at this point I'm pretty much just starting, I have my deck put in already. Here's the technical information for it that I believe is relevant, or might be. Or I was just lazy when taking stuff out.

What I would like to do, is put in 2 10 inch subs with a custom box built for under the back seat such as the one attached to this post.

(Just an example, I'm looking for something that fits 2 subs either 10 or 12 inch in that kind of style, and I should probably note that it's rhino lined on the inside, but I'll probably end up cutting that out as need be.)

So, as I'm sure everyone who's reading this who isn't new can tell, I am new to this. I've put in car decks, I've done minor car work, and I'm pretty technical so I want to tackle doing my own audio system. However, I'm not sure exactly what I need to continue. The next thing I want to do is put subs in the truck, and then do the speakers. However I'm ok with doing it the opposite way.

Now from what I understand, for the subs I need an amp that would support two subs, the wiring kit, the subs themselves, the sub box, and a power capacitor? Please let me know if I'm forgetting anything here. What I'm really confused on though, is what subs and amp to get, as well as what speakers. I would ideally, although I would imagine it would be unrealistic, I want to create this system with about $1000-$1500 cad.

I don't need the system to be mind blowing, just good enough for enjoying music. I might eventually swap out the deck for a double dinn, but realistically the truck is more of a learning experience for me. Like I said it's nothing fancy, it's not a hemi or a 4x4 or a diesel. Anyway, any advice or help at all on this would be absolutely amazing.
