I currently have a 12" AA Avalanche and it has good output and good low-end extension, yet it doesn't reproduce higher frequencies in the sub range very well. As a result, it doesn't really seem to blend in well with my two-way component set, so I'm thinking about getting a new sub. It has to fit the following criteria:
-Handle 1000 watts
-Works well in a small sealed enclosure, .95 ft^3 or so
-Reproduces frequencies over entire sub range, from lower to higher frequencies
-Output isn't a HUGE concern, looking for a good blend of sound quality and SPL (I ordered a 600 watt amp, but they sent me the 1000 watt version, so I need something that can handle the power )
-Budget, no more than 350
I looked at some threads here, saw the FI SSD, Alpine Type R fit might work, unfortunately my enclosure is a bit small for a IDMAX. I am really intrigued by the SSA Icon, which is supposed do well in a small enclosure. However, I haven't read much about the 12" version, only the 15". Again, needs to be a 12", handles a lot of power, fits in a small 1.0 ft^3 enclosure, and preferably hits higher frequencies.
