    I don't agree because it is not exactly the best option for this situation. I highly suggest you stop posting like we are in the dome though.

    Nice sub for sure, but not the end all sub what so ever.

    45lbs is a good chunk of weight to work with. So there are far more options then most will think. Using birch will help with overall weight as well. Can go sealed or perhaps a precision port setup. Depends more on the budget.

    The Icon is not a bad choice for something like this though and would perform rather well.

    All of that and you are against a 75lb sub? Seems a little silly to me to draw the line there.

    Boston Acoustics SPG555 2 1000W 13" Single 2 Ohm Oval SPG Series Car Subwoofer 690283382889 | eBay

    2 of these on 2500rms would be **** 3.5 inch coil with neo magnets

    because of the neo magnet it only weighs 26 pounds lol

    Boston Acoustics SPG555-2 Oval 2-ohm component subwoofer at Crutchfield.com

    I have 2 of them in my pontiac in a sealed 2 cubic birch box with 2 spg-555 passive radiators i bought directly from boston acoustics. (call the parts department)

    for all under 600 bucks amazing sounding subs with super light weight in a small box tuned to 30hz with the passive radiators. the small 2 cube box saves a ton of weight for the 2 subs

    What do you plan on tuning to with a 6"' port with his limited space? I like the sub choice though.

    That's bad *** but I just can't see why you would add a heavy *** battery, 0 gauge, an HO alt and then skimp over 30 extra lbs on the sub.
