    subwoofer in wrong sealed enclosure?

    Hey am new here i guess you can tell my question is i purchased or i won one of these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ayphotohosting
    and wanted to chance that sub and install a JL Audio 10W7 subwoofer but the enclosure i purchased has an Enclosure Volume of : .8 Cubic Ft. and the w7 has an Enclosure Recommendations:
    Sealed Range: 1.00 - 1.375 cu. ft. (28.3 - 38.9 ltrs)
    Recommended Sealed Volume: 1.25 cu. ft. (35.4 ltrs.)
    Fc: 44.7 Hz
    F3: 40.7 Hz
    Qtc: 0.785

    would these 2 units work fine or shoul o considder a new enclosure? any help is better than no help.
    Ps: i will be powering the w7 with Phoenix Gold Octane-R 8.0:1 800w bridge at 2 ohm.

    First of all, the W7 isn't going to remotely fit in there. The magnet won't even have clearance I don't think. Secondly, it would blow that enclosure to bits. . If you are going to run a sub that serious, you need to get a serious enclosure. Honestly, the W7 is pretty picky about Clearence and its got a displacement of 0.09 cu. ft and a mounting depth of 8"!!! Find an enclosure built for the W7 or have one made.

    23mm EXCURSION too. Just to give you an idea, infinity 10" subs are typically like 12mm.

    You would have to ask JL to provide tech specs about mounting depth and volume and such. That is built specifically for a 10" woofer that is not even in the same ballpark as the W7. You seeem to think that a 10" sub is a 10" sub. Thats not the case however. Enclosures are built for SPECIFIC subs in order to obtain full performance. You need to find an enclosure that is designed with the performance of a W7 in mind.

    nope neitheir enclosure will work. You will have to get a W7 specific enclosure. The mounting diameter of the W7 line is smaller then other woofers the same diameter. for instance the 12 W7s mounting hole is 10.5" as where the 12 W3s mounting diameter is 11.0625". Jl did this for a reason, the woofer needs to be in a properly built enclosure

    To make one?? I'm not sure what you are asking. Anything can be made. Are you asking if you could have one made? Or if you could buy one?

    I can't answer that just by a picture. I would need access to the specs of that enclosure, but I think that Website is gone. What exactly do you want?You are looking for a box to fit customly in your VW trunk as apposed to something generic that would just sit in the trunk? If you are looking for a vehicle specific enclosure, I do not know of any that will fit your vehicle that will accomodate a W7. You may have to have one made.
