    Help me decide on a good SQ/SPL sub for my rig!

    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.

    Best bang for your buck would probably be the RE SE12 woofer. Loud and clean, period.

    JL 12W6v2. Not bad cost, excellent output and SQ. No worry about the power, it will be louder and lower than the 10w6 anyways. I love the W6v2 subwoofers. Run 1 sealed in the biggest possible box that you can fit in your space. Be really nice if you could find 1.25-1.5ft3 for it. Keep the power clean though.

    I'd either do the 10 w6v2 or step up to the 12 w6v2. You'll have the power for both.

    http://www.techronics.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=1156. Here's the 12 w6 for $308. I've dealt with techronics.com before, they have good customer service and they shipped a set of speakers I bought from them within 2 days. That's about as cheap as you'll find that sub.

    either sub you listed above would work well off of the 500 watts.

    my vote goes to the idq though. im a little biased though

    Thanks for all the feedback, keep it coming! Thanks for the link to the 12w6v2, that is the cheapest I have seen it for. I will look into the RE sub as well, I have heard it mentioned a few times on the forums.

    Has anyone had any experience or comments on Fi Audio? I know they are fairly new to the game but I have read a few positive reviews on their stuff. Their Q series 10 is $234 and their 12 is $244 directly.

    The Image Dynamics 12IDQ version 3 would be my choice. The IDQv3 subs are awesome when it comes to clean accurate SQ and hey get loud and hit super had too.

    I don't think you could go wrong with either the 12W6v2, or the Stereo Integrity Mag. Either would do very well in a small sealed enclosure such as yours.

    Why don't you go with an RE audio SE12D4 ...its a dual 4 ohm 12 inch and its 600Watts rms which is slightly what the amp puts out over...and its on sale for $99...its a good $200 dollar sub normally.

    http://www.rickiesdiscountelectronic...sub-16508.html

    You may possibly need a slightly bigger enclosure that 1 cu ft....the mounting depth is 6.5" on this sub
