    SQ sub that will work best at low to mid volumes?

    Hi all!

    I currently have a 10" Diamond D2 sub on a sealed enclosure, but it sounds kind of crappy at low volumes, I need something that sounds very nice clean and soft at low to mid volumes, not that it falls behind at low volumes until you turn it up a bit then it starts to show, so what are your picks? SQ is priority, I HATE loud bass, I just want some nice soft bass that flows with my music.... btw this sub is being powered by a Punch 300.1 amp

    Thanx!!!

    do you have a budget or anything? i think an IDQ 12 comes to mind for mostly SQ.

    arc audio 12d4 . IMO better than the IDQ. ran off 350 watts and was really clean.

    the seas lotus woofer that is actually featured in car audio mag is supposed to sound great at low to mid volumes, just lacks in the high volumes range. if you want an all around awesome woofer that sounds amazing, i would definitly get the w6v2.

    A JL Audio W6V2 seems like a hard to move sub, I need something that can be moved with little power and will sound very nice...

    At low volumes most any speaker can sound good. You don't need a SQ geared sub to be able to enjoy accurate bass.

    On that note, a single Sound splinter RL-i10 should fit the bill.

    JL12w1v2......I have one sealed with 150w or so. it sounds really good at low volume or high. Its pretty efficient, so it doesnt take much power to bump.

    Highly recommended.

    Re: SQ sub that will work best at low to mid volumes?

    OK, thanx for all the replies,

    I currently have a Diamond Audio D3 10'' Sub on a sealed enclosure, will that be considered a SQ sub, or will a JL audio or Boston would sound much much better?

    idq , idw or id, or even ascendant assassins. id's are more forgiving imo in the box design
