I could offer to build an enclosure once you figure out a sub, but I don't think it will fit in a budget that your talking about.

    If you did want to do this option I could get a box built and shipped quickly so you would have everything around the same time frame(in most cases that is), and all you would have to do is throw the sub in and put the box in the car.
    can i run the sub at 2 ohms if the speakers are running at 4?

    What would be an idea at your budget if you were to buy a sub and enclosure? Maybe we can help you find what you need with in or close to your price range.

    Re: Need 12" sub recommendations for SQ at ~210 watts RMS

    hmm, i guess i'd like to stay at $250-350 (max) for the sub and box combined. and i guess since im getting a new enclosure, i could look at a dual 8" or 10" setup instead of a single 12" if that would lend to better SQ. if i understand correctly, two 4 ohm subs in parallel is 2 ohms, or just get a single 2 ohm sub and feed it the 450 RMS.

    i know it's basically spoonfeeding at this point, but if anyone has a tried and tested setup they love and that's in my budget, enclosure and all, i'd be ready to pounce.

    I pmed you an option. In your situation with power and cost I think it would be a great option.

    I doubt anybody will agree with me but as far as I'm concerned get a diamond audio D6. You literally won't find a more crisp clean sounding sub



    system 1:
    Car:04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
    Sub: Tc Sounds 3000 quad 15
    Amp: Audio Pipe Ap1500.1
    Head unit: Eclipse AVN7000
    Big 3: 1/0
    System 2:
    Car: Gf's Pontiac G6 GT
    Sub: Orion HCCA 12.4
    Amp: Audio Pipe Ap3000d

    you could go with 2 Sundown E8 v.2s they're about $95 each then that would leave about $150 left over for a box for them. They would be perfect with the power you have and they sound really good.



    Bought from: Misfit138, Nateberrier, Loudrc, Jarvisb, DMP, RAM_designs, go_go_thrash, alxmlr789,imjnotu
    Sold to: Lazyrider, TaylorPro, AJM511, Energizedsbs, diarmer, sobe3yourself
    Traded with: Vitveet, Resko1 x2, Suicide Bobb, Dumple
    More that I've forgotten now and some more in progress

    crap, i didnt account for the mdf thickness, you're right!

    h: 12"
    b1: 6"
    b2: 9.5"
    d: 24"

    area of trapezoid = h * (b1+b2)/2 = 12 * (6 + 9.5)/2 = 93 in2
    volume = area * d = 93 * 24 = 1.17 cu ft.

    so does that open up some better options for me for putting a 12" into this box??

    What is the sound and performance you after? In my opinion it is a waste of funds to toss a sub into a random enclosure not built for it. Especially when you have low power situations I would prefer a custom box built to that subwoofer's specs to get the most out of it to ensure you get the sound and sound level you are wanting. Other wise in many situations you are wasting money by just changing subs. With that being said you need to figure out what sub(s) your looking at because sub displacement will change your airspace which will change your tuning and performance.

    I have been talking with him in PMs. I suggested the Dcon with a box ported box built to spec and tuned low.
