    Icon7 Focal Polyglass 33V1 13" - What Enclosure Type, Amp, Wiring, H/U Is Best

    Hi Gang!

    I'm thinking of doing just ONE of these subs in my Jeep Cherokee. Do you think that's enough or should I go for two? If I do two, should I have one box or two?

    Is Sealed the best way to go with these Focal subs? or ported, vented, bandpass?

    What is the best amp to use...I want best Sound Quality without breaking the bank, but also a lot of Deep End Bass

    Basically, how should my setup look with the Focal 13" as the centerpiece?

    Thanks for all your help!

    I currently run all focal polyglass components, but I am getting ready to upgrade to the polyglass subs as well (hopefully soon). Go with a sealed enclosure, not vented. Also, focal sells this padding that looks like auralex to line your box. I can't remember what it's called, but the shop I deal with was telling me about it. Supposedly, it will make a big difference on the sound quality of the subs.

    You can do either. If you like the ability to get a lot of bass out for some stuff then go with a tuned ported box. I've got my 2 40 A's in a ported box and it sounds great. It is still nice and clean sound but can still get loud.

    Focal recommends sealed (I know that are not as efficient but....doesn't that give tighter more accurate bass response? Does anyone know where to buy a good sealed box for this particular sub?

    Can someone name a few good SQ amps that will push approx 400 watts RMS.

    For head units, should I go high end Alpine or Pioneer? Any other suggestions I'm open to....
