    Best 8" or 10" Sub for 300w RMS @ 2Ohm

    I'm going to build a box between the two jump seats in the back of my truck. Heres the catch:

    Cut-Out Diameter has to be around 9". The space between the seats is 10.5", so using 3/4" MDF leaves me with 9.75" MAX Cut-Out Diameter.

    Basically 10.5" is the MAX Diameter of the sub, 9.75" MAX Cut-out Diameter.

    I have an Alpine MRD-M300 rated at 1x300w RMS @ 2ohm, 1x150W @ 4ohm.

    I'm looking for SQ mainly, but its my brother's truck and he listens to alot of Hip-Hop so the idea of SQL probably fits better. Definitely not SPL.

    Most likely going to be sealed, but may become ported if the faux arm-rest doesn't get too tall.

    These Should Fit
    SS RL-i8 8" 200-500W RMS
    DDAudio 8" 1508 450W RMS

    Any Suggestions?

    IDQ10 is 11 inches. What kind of truck ?
    Also 10.5 outside will give you 9 inches on the inside.

    06 Frontier King Cab.

    I saw a thread on clubfrontier.com and got inspired. But I wasn't too impressed with the OP's choice so I wanted to hear what CA had to say before I went ahead.

    I have the same truck doing the same thing but have 600rms@2ohms. You can fit 10 3/4 wide. Will be really tight but will fit snug betweeen the seats and allow the front seats to go back the entire way. I'm looking into a JL10W6v2 on here for sale. Overall is 10.5/ Cutout is 9

    seats are usually cushioned, so maybe you can squeeze 11" in.

    if so, I'd go for the idq10 v3

    They are but the one front seat has plastic thing on the side and 10 3/4 wide is really, really tight. I cut some really stiff cardboard for templates already.

    Quote-As per NISMO's info above, IDQ's and ID10's are 11"... too big

    The ID10V.3 will work as its 10.125 and the IDQ and IDMax are 11.
    I had my mind set on an ID10V.3 but the more I thought about it I dont think that would be enough and I would end up doing it over so I got a bigger amp now and looking for a 10in sub around 500-600rms with a 10.5in overall frame size.
