I am considering a new sub, either the Image Dynamics ID10D4 V.3 or the Image Dynamics IDQ10V2.D4. Here are some links to both.

I need a custom box. This will be going in a 97 Toyota 4runner, and I want a sealed enclosure built to specs. I am new at this, so I dont know what else you need to know to get the enclosure built. I would like some prices along with pics of previous builds if possible. If any more info is needed, let me know. Thank you.

I can do it. I'm in Fort Worth, Texas so shipping wouldn't be much to Arkansas. Here is a few pics of a box I built for another IS300 owner on my lexus forum. It was a carpeted sealed box for a 12" alpine type R with a plexiglass window so you could see the magnet. She mounted the amp to the side. I would have preferred it on the rear of the seat but it was her choice :rolleyes:

PM me if you're interested.

As far as driver selection between the two you listed...the IDQ is more SQ oriented than the ID. What are you looking for?

I am looking for sq. I have 2 JBL 10's right now in a prefab probox. Way more bass than I wanted. SQ is ok, but far from being worth what I put into it. Can you give me a rough estimate of cost (need to know a ballpark price, I understand you wont know exactly). I was thinking about doing tan carpet to match my interior, but never saw that done, what do you think? I just need something built to specs so I can get better SQ. Thanks a lot, anyone else?

I'm guessing I'll need to get 2 yards of carpet. I usually get my carpet for enclosures at Partsexpress...do you think this looks like a match for your interior?

If all you wanted was a sealed and carpeted enclosure built to spec I could do it for $120.

Here is a pic that lets you see the color a little. I am trying to sell my JBL's and cant do anything until they are sold. I am not sure, I would like to keep my setup around $200, which would mean that the IDQ is out of the question with a custom box. That was the sub I was leaning towards, but at 160, that dont leave me much for a box. Any ideas? Thanks.

with a buget that low I'd just keep the set up you got...

anyways I don't build sealed enclosures I put all my time
into getting the most out of ported applications
(I missed the sealed part of your post)



and Thanx BJ..

Honestly I would go for the ID10 for use in a sealed application. It would have a little more output. The two drivers are close in SQ too. How much power are you going to throw at it?

I have an old school Rockford Fosgate 360a2 amp. Although rated at 360, I have heard people claim bench tests showing all the way up to 500 watts. If the ID 10 and the IDQ 10 will be close in SQ, I may do the ID with custom enclosure. What do you think? My JBL's sound great at hight volume, but that is not how I use my system so whatever I get needs to sound great at low volume (one 10 should do the trick) Thanks a lot.

You should be able to run that amp on an ID if you set your gains correctly. Since you are putting it in a sealed enclosure you can run a little more power too. If you really want to get your system around your price mark I could cut you some slack and do the box for $100+whatever FedEx charges to your zipcode.

I really need to know, will you be able to match it perfectly to specs for this sub? I want to make sure it will be worth the extra $$$. What do you think would look better, doing the black/gray carpet or using tan to match my interior? I havent saw a matching setup, so I am not sure about it. Also, I am thinking resale may be easier on a black carpeted one????? I notice the ID subs require very little space, which is nice. I like the tight punchy bass, so I am guessing I need something on the lower end of the recommended size, right? Thanks a lot.

I can build it to EXACT specs. The driver displaces 0.05 cubic feet so the box would just be made 0.05 bigger than whatever you want it to be. The range on the Image Dynamics website is 0.4-0.8 sealed.

If you did want charcoal colored carpet that makes things easier for me. I have about 60sq feet of it in my closet b/c that's what matches the IS300 trunk

If you are interested PM me tonight. I have time tomorrow I could build it and ship it out Monday.

WOW, that is service. I gotta wait till I sell my JBL's, which should be soon. If nothing else I will put them on ebay. I have a few people interested on another forum, however it has been down for maintenance so I have been unable to communicate with them in the past day or so. So would the IDQ be worth an extra $30? What about the color thing???? PM sent BuckyBoy. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all the help you have given me.

Any ideas on color matching? Any other builders out there? Thank you all very much.
