    Re: Best shallow mounts

    What kind of response and power are they rated at? What $ are you looking at for 1?

    I have two Memphis MR10S4 in a box

    They sounded great in my f150 off of 400 watts, if you gave them there 600 rms they would sound even better

    What kind of music do you primarily listen too? How are the low lows? I listen to mainly hip hop, breaks and heavy bass.

    stereo integrity bm 4 hands down

    Stereo Integrity | SI BM mkIII
    if you can put a 12 inch hole in the box but it only requires .5 cube of space

    or

    Alpine SWR-T10 Component Car Subwoofers at Onlinecarstereo.com
    besides the bm this is the best shallow 10 can take up to 600rms and gets down and on clearance usually a 600 dollar sub msrp
    Alpine SWR-T10 Type-R Thin 10" 4-ohm shallow-mount subwoofer at Crutchfield.com
    here is some more infor on crutchfield


    and depending on how much mounting depth you have this is also an amazing sub and price per output the best option

    Re: Best shallow mounts

    I actually forgot that one of my reps at work used to be a memphis rep. He is coming to see me next week. He still works for the corp just selling different merch now. He said they were ok but that he hasn't really heard any shallow mounts that have made him say wow. I think I'm going to try and find a traditional sub that has 4.75 or smaller mounting depth. Any suggestions? If I ad a lip to extend my box I loose excursion room since I my box is down firing.

    I had two Rockford P3s 10"s in my 95 f150. They sounded OK. Not really impressed. Was putting 600 RMS from a Alpine PDX 600.1

    Re: Best shallow mounts

    So I ordered the Sundown SD-2 this morning. I actually looked at this sub before I bought the pioneer and liked what I read. For some reason I still bought the pioneer. I'm hoping I'll be telling myself, I should have just bought this one in the first place. All the literature I have seen says they are 500 wrms(conservatively), so does anyone know the peak?
