    Which 10'' or 12'' subs for .77CU.FT. sealed?

    I've been looking/trolling around the forums for some ideas, as to what I can fit into my enclosure. It's a dual chamber sealed and I have 6.25" of mounting depth to work with (With no regard to magnet diameter, as I have over 9" of give in that aspect) and 80cu.ft. I assume I could fool the sub into thinking its in a 1cu.ft. with polly-fill. I more so lean on "feeling" my bass. The amp I'm using is a Hifonics Colossus LTD.

    A ported box really isn't an option I don't think? - Vehicle is a 2006 Silverado 2500HD crew cab, and no I will not put in a cut-though, lol.

    So which subs play the lowest and hit hardest given my "sealed situation"? Budget is $1,200.00 for the pair if it is absolutely necessary to get deep bass into my truck.

    FI SSD10s came to mind, along with DC level 4s. Do they like sealed?

    If that is all the space you have a 10 sealed or 8's ported is all your gunna be able to fit... Look into Dayton HO's

    Are you down firing or similar?

    I have a pair of Diamond Audio M3 10s that would work really well in that type of space after driver displacement and such it should be about perfect.

    Yes, the box is down-firing.

    "MB Quart Rwe series"

    Amp is a little strong for those isn't it? I understand I can control the output with the gain. However, it seems redundant to use (IMHO) a cheaper speaker like that with a amp capable of driving some serious speakers with the mounting depth I have allotted.

    Not really, I have around 1.6-1.7 under the seats to work with, minus getting fancy with the box and trying to go behind the seat supports. Then another 1.7-1.8' behind the seats.

    A ported box is doable for a single 12', but I lack the skills necessary to make this happen and have been unable so far to find a local builder that wants to take it on.

    WinISD predicts that Dayton Reference HO12 SVC should work fine in this box. It recommends more space for the DVC version.
