    Need suggestion for sub that takes very little space

    Hi, I need suggestions for subs that will sound good in a very small sealed box, preferably 10 litres (0.35cu ft) or so. This is to fit in the spare tire well of my 1995 300ZX.

    I am primarily interested in 10" subs with good SQ. I know the Rockford Fosgate Punch10 and the Focal 27V might fit. Are either any good? Any other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I think you'll need a little more space if your looking for SQ.

    The punch is a good entry level sub but I have heard it and it's not big on SQ...I would go with the Focal.

    Eclipse Alum10.... Great SQ and decent SPL...

    I had a Alum 15 and it performed great in 1.6cubes, 1.2 cubes and .90cube....YES it can take a small box and sound decent and not punchy.... The 10 inch alum will be great for you space...

    Sure they can

    Brahma works in pretty small box as well, needs to be realistically larger due to displacement.
