    Pure SQ subs for my application?

    Hello,

    Well RIP GTOBRA

    I have a new 2003 F150 Supercab and it needs some boom

    Want to go full-blown SQ setup here.. but also want low-low-LOW extension as well. Don't want it loud, I want it deep.

    I never bought the system for the GTOBRA, so I am hunting for everything at this moment.

    Was thinking of:

    1 15" Adire Brahma
    1 15" RE XXX
    2 12" JL 12W3v2's

    or even a single 12" Brahma/XXX if it boils down to it..

    Box size is flexible, I will be willing to change box size to increase SQ/extension if need be. Max size of 2 cu.ft, however.

    This will be either a up or down firing sub, whichever sounds better in the truck.

    Any suggestions guys??

    Thanks!!

    Zylo

    Out of your three choices there...the Brahma would be my selection - thats just me, however.

    based on your criteria, it seems like you could take a brahma 12 or even a 10, and give it a big enough box to go as low as you want. You don't necessarily need a 15 to go low; you just need a big box. And since you said you don't need SPL at all, the 15 shouldn't be all that necessary.

    I have heard that the Ed O is a pure SQ sub and the K and A are sql. Another subs not mentions for SQ would be maybe 2 10" Type-R's(I'm a fan) or possibly a 12" HC, heard HC's have some real nice SQ.

    the K is definately SQL
    it gets lound and sounds good doin it and the A get way louder and sounds good
    i also heard the O series subs r made strictly for Sealed enclosures....now y would u have an SQL sub in a sealed enclosure...i mean im not genius but i believe a ported box will get u louder...and the A and K sounds great in a ported box and gets way loud

    now im not saying the O's dont get loud but im not saying they do get loud i never heard one but i do have the new e10k's and they get loud and sound good
    but i really want an e10A or e12A but maybe in the future lol

    I wouldn't use a 15 in 2 cuft..

    you're looking for low end extension.. from a sealed box.. that requires displacement ability.. and power handling.. (you'll want some good power)

    I'd suggest

    XXX 12"
    Brahma 12"
    A 12"

    all 3 will do the job in 1-2 cuft sealed.. and would be the best overall bet

    at least thats been my understanding
    That's why their site has A listed as the "Audiophile..."

    :p

    From your requirements I'd suggest the Brahma 15" and goose 'er... You should love the results...
