Default help with box and speakers

Ok guys I'm new to this forum and I don't even know if I'm posting in the right area. So I have no idea where to start. I'm making a homemade boombox with these speakers.
1 Pyle PLG64 6.5" 300 Watt Car Mid Bass/Midrange Subwoofer
Pair of Pyle PLG3.2 3.5" Gear X Series 2-Way Speakers - 120W Max

A total of 3 speakers

I'm still working on which amp and crossovers to get any help would be appreciative. I'm leaning towards the lvpin 200W 12V Mini Hi-Fi Amplifier Booster because is has a output just for bass I think so that would power the mid subs. The box I'm shooting for a 2 foot (length) x 1 foot (tall) x 1 foot (deep).
Plus I'm looking to make it solar powered with a charge controller with a security panel type battery (lead sealed) but again not sure which one to get so many 12 volts with many different miniamp options

Do to not being a audio type of guy I would like to thank all ahead for any help

The amplifier is fine as long as you realise its about 20W, not 200W.
Your box seems too big for the drivers to me.

rgds, sreten.

Make the box a little thinner. Perhaps 6" deep. Divide the box into two halves. Install a 1mH. inductor in series to the 6.5" driver and run the 3.5" direct. The 3.5" driver already has a capacitor to the tweeter..

Git that done and we'll work on the rest..
