    Best subwoofer for small sealed box (truck installation)

    I don't post here much, but thought you guys might could help. Currently I'm looking for an 8" or 10" subwoofer to fill my needs. I will be using two of them in a sealed box that will have about .65 cu/ft per chamber and will be downfiring under my rear seat. They will be fed by an AP15001D. Eventually I'd like to add another enclosure behind the rear seat as well, so I think for now I'd like to stick to some subs that can handle around 600-700rms for the pair (that way I can add 2 more of the same woofer later down the road and get full power from my AP without having to add another amp, and possibly battery/alt).

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    P.S. The truck is a Chevy HD2500 Crew Cab if it matters at all.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Forgot to post, I'm looking for something fairly cheap. Around $100 per woofer with a max of about $150 per woofer if necessary. Don't need super high quality.
    5.25" mounting depth

    10's are also nice

    the ed 8's are amazing subs that love sealed boxes and are on clearance for only 40 bucks

    oh and if you are getting a box, fox acoustics are the only truck boxes i would ever buy

    Not very much then... Look into the two lower Sundown lines below the SA series they are shallow mount oriented...

    I'll check them out.

    Really leaning towards trying the ED8's. They look pretty sweet, and if it didn't work out the way I wanted, I would only be out $80 for the pair... very tempting.

    I was thinking about a pair as well but Sam got a pair and both had coil rub... So I kinda decided there is a reason they are on sale for cheap...

    Re: Best subwoofer for small sealed box (truck installation)

    Perhaps I'll rethink my decision then. I think the SD-2's are next up on my list.

    Also looking at the REX10 as a cheaper alternative. Not sure what I want yet.
