    a pure SQ 10" sub: JL, eclipse, ed, se, WHAT?

    You may or may not have seen my post called "I need some QUALITY bass, but can't decide". Anyway... Before I was thinking I could get a "mid-bass" components, but now I have decided to suppliment my single 12" Infinity Kappa 120.3se with a quality SQ sub. I have been looking at: JL Audio w3v2, Ed K's, Eclipse 87001 series, RE, JBL and others.

    The big issue is that the price and stats differ between 50RMS and $50, but that is not what I am concerned with. I just do not know which models are made for SQ over SPL. I know JL Audio would be nice for SQ, but I would also like to look into OTHER brands. Remember SQ SQ SQ SQ SQ SQ!!!!

    THANKS TO ALL THAT CAN PROVIDE INPUT

    more specs add-on

    ADD-ON:
    Some things to help you in your recomendations:

    Looking for a sub at the price of $200 or less, and keep in mind, I always talk in terms of DISCOUNT ONLINE PRICING, not MSRP.

    Definately a sealed enclosure, I would also really like a 10" sub because it takes cost down moderately and also it would be a nice setup in my trunk if I could get a 10". Because my trunk peaks in height in the middle I could do a:
    [ o O o ] (with o= 10" subs and O= 12" sub)

    thanks

    out of the ones you listed the jl's are geared most for sq.....i just heard a set of 4 of them with a mere 600 watts that outpounded my underpowered w7.....so they get pretty loud too....may want to look into the 8w7 when it comes out or the se 8, and ed a8....a high powered 8 might give you exactly what your looking for....i imagen those three would of preform many of the 10's on the market.



    I'm back to stock in my new car.....

    ok thanks for the quick reply's, I have pretty much decided on Eclipse Aluminum. I was thinking about other suggestions the entire time though, so thank you, that probably helped me get higher standards:

    Polk Momo was first idea for about 30 seconds (i figured high price MUST BE GOOD, haha)
    JL 10w3 was next thought (because of SQ quality)
    ED k's - more spl than sq
    A/D/S and IDQ just weren't recomended enough, and seemed a little obsucre
    Alpine Type-R - good SQ recomendations, but too generic

    So I ended up on Eclipses, after reading reply's to this thread and also lottsa past threads. There was a general agreement that Eclipse had good SQ, although some complained of overpricing. And even people who said they were overpriced areed that the Eclipse would be a very good quality sub. So for now I have settled on them:

    Eclipse 8101DVC or 8101.4 (a 10" sub with 500rms @4ohm OR dual 4ohm)

    (this thread does not have to end here - feel free to keep replying !!!)

    EQ's - AudioControl Epicenter
    BOX - homemaid 1.7 cu. ft ported box @ 35hz (w/ neon & plexi)
    WIRE - 4 gauge w/ distribution and power blocks - KnuKonceptz
    DAMPENING - 50ft of Second Skin Damplifier
    CAR - 99 Acura 3.5 RL - V6 w/ 210hp - all stock
    NEXT - replace anything Bose, add HU, add navi

    the IDQ is a very nice SQ, but I really like the SQ and the sound reproduction of the Eclipse Aluminum
