    Need help on subwoofer choice.

    So far I have 2 Amps a McIntosh 404m (Cabin Components) and a McIntosh 301M 600watt @ 2ohms for the subwoofer. I am thinking about 1 10 or 12'' What would be the optimal subwoofer for SQL (with some SPL involved) that will fit in a 1-1.5 cube enclosure. I am going to fiberglass a cubby in the back of my audi to keep the sub out of the way. And the amps will be built into the floor.

    Opinions please!
    For interior Components I am probably going to get Rainbow geraniums. Not sure if i will do the rear doors or go 2 channel config to the front speakers.

    A RE SE would sound great with that power.

    Look into the SI BM 12, SS RL-p 12 DVC4, or FI SSD 12.

    I looked up thier specs they are dual 2ohm. That won't really work with my amp.

    Re: Need help on subwoofer choice.

    1 10w7 (i happen to have one fs in great condition) or a 13w6v2

    also an option is the Rainbow Vanadium (i had trouble finding a link)

    the SI BM 12 referred to was

    http://audiojunkies.com/product_deta...product_id=262

    any of those would work well.

    oh btw great choice in amps.

    Re: Need help on subwoofer choice.

    SE is a great woofer, but IMO w7 or w6v2 > SE
    (i've owned all 3)

    note: this is only true when price isn't a factor
