Subwoofer reccomendation

Recommended Posts

I have an 07 ram quad cab.  Second time owning this truck.  It has hertz energy 6.5"comps in doors and hertz dieci 5.25" in rear doors.  I have a jl XD500/3 on comps and the sub channel puts out 300 at 2ohms. I will not change amps.  I will be buying that under seat box for 1 10" .65-.8ft^3 depending on which box I decide to get.  

 

So I want SQ.  Loud is subjective loud to me wont be loud to you all I know.  I really want to fill in the bottom octaves is ideally what I want.  So what sub for the small sealed box and 300 watts? 

Pricing the cheaper the better $125 is probably the max cause thats $200 for sub and box and im broke for car audio.

 

I don't know anymore what all these internet brands are. I've been in this hobby since like 1998 so I guess you could say old timer.

Loud is objective, SQ is subjective.  

Bottom octaves or octave?  How deep is the "bottom" to you?  Small sealed & cheap do not make big lows.

Really hard to beat the value of the SSA subs, but $200 for box and sub won't get you there.

Well the box is around $75.  So that leaves me $125 for a sub.  

I know loud and sq are subjective recent good sounding systems to me were 2 10w0 in that dodge ram atrend box with 300 on the pair.  That was plenty loud as well.  I'm just wanting 1 ten I know its not "loud".  Lower than my hertz comps.  In non sealed doors in a novice install.  I listen to 90's-00's hip hop and rap, rock, metal, and 70's rock.

$125 for a sub is the money.  Only have 6" depth it seems as well.  I won't spend a ton of money on this system.  Already had most of it as this is my old truck.

Image Dynamics ID10.  Try and find the V3.  They had 6 mm more Xmax than the V4s do.  ID cut them back because they were outperforming the IDQ for a fraction of the price.  The V4s are still fine drivers though.

That ampere sub intrigues me greatly.  Looking at mounting depth and box size are my concerns.  Ill go find that website.

I know nothing of amperes subs. But I'm gonna hold out for a pair of the demons I think. I'm guessing they'll be worth the wait. And since I've been here this long and yet to try some ssa subs.

SBS sub.  10".  Ok so I may be selling my other truck that has a JL cp108 box in it already.  If I do then I'm gonna switch it over to this truck if it fits.  If it doesn't fit ill sell it.
