you could make the build in sections so its easy to remove, you'll have to have the 6x9's in seperate boxes to the subs, make card templates first,
why not fit a second ciglighter in the boot

i've taken the cig plug off lights before sometimes they work sometimes they don't, the neon i had worked, you'll have to fit a switch or they'll be on all the time.
you could wire second socket from existing one then when you turn ingnition off lights would go off

I've never actually been in a car which has a boot build.

What they sound like? or would you only use for shows etc.

in your instruction manual with your speakers(if you aint got you can easily getoff the internet) it tells you boxed volume required just make a box to fit underneath them that are the right volume and they create a superb sound! if you want a demo to start with take your sub(if youve got one) out of its box and listen then put it in, youll get better sound because the sound can only travel in one direction and thats towards your ear and not in the boot!

im doing my sound system atm just waiting to get time to go to B&Q to get mdf to build a brand new parcel shelf and boxes for my 6x9's

hope this helps
