New member here trying to get some feedback on a sub that would fit my ear well. I have a wide range of musical taste, everything from rap/trance/old school/rock, even classical at times. I am looking for a sub that would fit well into a SQ & SPL category, good output but clean and accurate. I want something that is going to sound fantastic at nominal volumes but can hit hard if/when I want it to.
I have already picked up the amp that will be running the sub, it's a JL Audio 500/1. The install is going to be in my new rig, a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. It will be in a custom fiberglass enclosure that will be installed in the back passenger side quarter panel. The enclosure will be between .75 - 1 cu ft of space. I will be retaining the stock deck as I really enjoy it and the Boston Acoustics 6 speaker system for mids and highs.
My budget is around $1000, maybe a little more. I have already ate up $250 for the amp. A sub around $300 or so would probably leave me the room I need for the install cost.
A couple subs I have looked at are the JL Audio 10W6v2 and the Image Dynamics IDQ12v3 (choose the 12 because the 10 can handle 500w RMS, wanted a little breathing room). I am open to ANY suggestions for other subs as I want the best bang for the buck. Let me know what everyone thinks and give me some suggestions for other subs, I'm not looking to break the bank here.
