    SQ subs?

    Hello, well I am pretty sure this thread was started over and over again and most of the replies were JLW6 but here's what's my problem is.
    1) I owned JL12"W6v2 and it was an awesome sub, I sold it and now looking for something different.
    2) Has to work in smaller enclosures because I am trying to do a clean/hidden setup this year and don't want to take up half of my trunk like W6 did.
    3) Has to be an SQ sub good response, linearity and stuff like that.

    I looked into Precision-Mass subs but don't know anything about them and I don't want to be like my friend who bought Treo sub 2000Watt RMS and killed it with 1000Watts of clean power . So any recommendation from you SQ guys is helpful and needed.

    Thank you

    WoofersEtc.com - The Online Car Audio Super Store, The largest selection at the lowest prices! Image Dynamics Authorized Internet Dealer!, Ground Shaker, roof mount monitors, car monitor, car video, flip down monitor, Eclipse, Eclipse Car Audio, Ecli 73

    This is something I've been meaning to try for a long time. They are geared toward Sq and response. Obviously a big plus is the cost. I've never heard them, I just love everything else I've tried from CDT Audio - They have 6" components that sell for $150 (maybe a little more now) that rival $500 speakers.

    Other than that, you may want to explore a Jl Audio 12w1V2. The new W1s are very good, afordable and designed for smaller enclosure.
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    yikes thats actually more airspace then the W6 needs.

    If Scott_fx were here he'd probably say look at Elemental Designs.
    I'm trying to find a sub I came accross that went in a small sealed and sounded good.

    I think though you need to clarify some things-
    I take it you want a sub that works well in sealed applications not vented correct?
    How much power, what amp?

    most of elemental designs subs are SQ oriented. i have a 10" (eD 11Kv.2) sealed in 0.5 cu. ft that sounds very clean with 300wrms

    Well after looking through a coupe of options I think this might be my next sub, the price tag is a lil high but way lower then W6.

    The sub is not out yet but will be in couple of week's, it seems that MbQuart started to make nice SQ subs but I wont know until I hear it in a sound room which wont happen for probably another month.

    You should check out the image dynamics IDQ. These are proven sq subs and require very small enclosures
