    Best SQ 10" subs for trunk of bmw???

    May be getting a new car in a few months so I was curious what 10" SQ subs are out there and what is viewed as 'hot ****' these days.

    I'm looking for something with very tight SQ. I have some JL 12w6's in my truck right now and they are nice and loud but lacking on the sq side. They need to hurry up and invent shiva 10's

    Whats so good about the elcipse aluminums? How do they differ from their titanium line. Any more info on elemental design? I've never heard of them before.

    Probably a year back people were always talking about infinity perfects for subs and shiva 12's when going for SQ.

    I personally dont like the sound of 2 12's compared to 2 10's and the 2 12's would be overkill for a trunk install for my personal prefs.

    Can anyone comment on the SQ differences they perceived between lets say 2 10"s and 2 12" shivas? I've never had the opportunity to hear a shiva before =(

    Also I looked up the XMAX's on the eclipses and eD's:

    Eclipse Aluminum 10" : 1.20"
    Elemental Designs K 10" : .6417"

    Judging by this the Eclipse would hit a lot harder than the edK would it not?

    Btw, I'm considering a 2003 330ci.

    Thanks!

    that's over 30mm of throw, pay no attention to the listed xmax on the eclipse site.

    Eclipse will hit a little harder, they are one of the best SPL/SQ combo subs out there, I say sealed on them is the best, but the Ti's are much more for SPL and a little less for SQ then the ALuminums

    considering i'm poor like that, i have no way of sampling subs and whatnot. i'm just curious, why do you say no eclipse? i've only heard good things about them.

    if all you want is SQ go with Focal utopia. I know its an 11in sub but whataever. OR MB Quart PWD. Great Great SQ not much punch though.
