Default Help with audio system update.

Ok guys after doing some reading on here and looking at a lot of pics I would like to ask all of you for some help on upgrading my audio.
2004 QC.
Pioneer head unit[ came with truck]
Pioneer 6x9 front and Pioneer 6.5 or 5.1/4 in rear.[came with truck]
I added Boston acoustic 3.5" for the dash.
Picked up a new mdf box for 12"s on craigslist.[Which I later matched up a few local dealers as the same one they sell...supposed to be based on the probox]

So I went and looked for subs and an amp...and threw the box in under my seat..didn't seem to fit real we tried their boxes, probox/wooden/and even a foxbox..all with the same results.

Seems as if the carpet needs to be stretched ? in order for it to sit flush.

Also are there spacers that can be bought to allow my rear seat to close completely over the box?

And the last question....
What is the best bang for buck amp and sub combo?
I have looked at kicker so far and alpine subs..And Kicker and planet audio amps.
I have to keep the budget pretty low at this time but can't stand to turn the radio on any more it sounds terrible.
{My wife has a Bose system so it kills me to go from her car to mine...]

Any help or opinions or pics would be greatly appreciated.

Well as for the box fitment, I'm not sure why it doesn't fit. I had an 04 and had a box like your mentioning then I made a custom fiberglass box for it. There are seat spacers you can get but what I did was undid the bolts and added a 3/4" nut under each one and it allowed my seat to go all the way down.
For sub and amp combo,
Amps: MBQuart, Rockford Fosgate, Cerwin Vega, or kicker
Subs: Alpine type R, Rockford Fosgate, Cerwin Vega, RE Audio, Kicker.

Those are the brands of amp/sub I would run in a box like you have. Those amp brands I mentioned tend to run close to true rated watts unlike some other brands.
