    Need recommendations on cheap, excellent-SQ 10" subs (8 ohms or DVC)...

    I've got an ESX 1204 amp currently pushing my front components, with the rear two channels bridged and powering a pair of JL 10WO's. I loved the subs but time has not been kind to them. The surrounds have completely deteriorated on both and one of them actually doesn't move at all (I'm hoping it's due to a burnt vc or something else sub-related and not my wiring or amp).

    Anyways, I'm looking for a couple of 10 inchers that will give me excellent SQ for as cheap as possible....preferably less than $150 for both, and the cheaper the better. I don't care about SPL at all, just want something that delivers clear, crisp, tight bass with about 200w each (the esq puts out about 400w bridged iirc).

    Only catch is that the box/amp is pre-wired in parallel (i think...my car audio knowledge is a bit rusty), as the JL's I currently have are 8 ohms, so I'm gonna need something that comes in 8 ohm versions (or DVC 4 ohms, I believe...please let me know if it's not possible to power 2 DVC 4 ohm subs with a bridged channel and still have a 4 ohm load on the amp).

    Also, the box I have is sealed with about .75 cu ft. per sub, iirc.

    Thanks for the help.

    it just so happens I'm selling 2 Eclipse 10's for a friend at work. They were barely used in a sealed enclosure.
    SW6103DVC is the model number.
    Pics in a sec.
    $160 shipped.
    Both Jntar and ~Magick_Man~ have seen 'em. They're in pristine condition.

    Assasin
    Those would probably be my #1 choice based on reviews I've read online, but as I said, I need something that's either 8 ohms or DVC. Assassin's don't qualify.

    check out the great 12" challenge. they did extremly well for what they cost. the build quality looks great as well. the 15" i got is very beefy. look for a review post tonight on my 15". the silicon has dried so i will put itin the box when i get home, and give it a thorough testing.
