    The way i done it in my cav and senator when i had them was i took the boot carpet out and used that as a template to cut out some MDF as a base to mount the subs on then i used battening round the edge and in the middle to support hardboard cut out the same shape covered in carpet.

    18mm MDF, use the boot carpet as a template, just cut it smaller otherwise it won't fit. Then it depends how you want to mount everything, I would mount the sub box underneath into the spare wheel well with the amp/amps on top and then another panel to go over it with either a cutout or fan for cooling.
