    Which sub to buy? - HELP

    Here is my set up...
    Front - Focal 6.5" (165KF)
    Mids - ID OEM's (like the CX64)
    Amp - probably 5 channel Focal or Arc

    As for subs I have it down to three...
    Focal (11") 27v2
    ID Q10
    JL 10w6

    Also I can get a good deal (save a few $$) on a new IDQ 12"

    Should I take the ID Q12 or stay with a 10/11" sub. Will the 12 sound perform the same as the 10" (response, tightness, reverb, etc).

    IF not the 12" then which 10/11"?

    Want to stay sealed with about 1cu ft space.

    Opinions/help needed.

    Thanks

    personally, i'd take the idq12". if the w6 was a 12" i'd probably lean towards that. however, never heard the focal so i can't comment on that sub.

    that focal is real nice, but $$$$$$.

    Id go with a ID Q 10.

    Tightness and size of the subwoofer are not as related as you think they are.
    There are "tight" 15's out there

    Is there a big sound difference between the ID Q 10" and 12"?

    I am running the ID OEM mids and CTX tweets upfront, and an IDQ12 in 1.0^3 sealed. It is ******** inducing. Buy the IDQ. Please. For the love of your wang.

    I would go with a 12" -- either Focal or JL. Well, 11 or 13 with Focal.

    The IDQ sounds good, but the output just isn't nearly enough in my experience. All thimgs being equal, I would go with the JL.

    The ID's are rated for 500w I think. I don't plan on giving the sub more than 300W total @ 2ohm.

    I plan on using the sub just for SQ (I listen to a lot of jazz and old rock).

    Picked up the ID Q12V3 D4 on ebay (new in the box). Save about $100.00 from retail.

    Also have a set of ID OEM's on the way

    Dayton HO or Mach5 IXL?

    If not, I would lean towards the IDQ or W6 , then the Focal if you can find a good deal on it.
