    Looking with an 8" to 12" under 500 watts.

    I am want to add some bass to a jeep liberty. I need to keep some cargo space for groceries etc. I don't need to **** off the world, but would like it to be loud. I was thinking of getting a one sub setup. I don't know what subwoofer I should get. I don't care if its 8",10" , or 12". I would like the sub to be 500 watts or smaller. I don't wanna worry about dimming with lights etc. I listen to rap but want it to be more be SQ vs Spl. I use SPL for my other truck.

    I noticed the Sundown Audio SA-8 only need .75 ^ft. But I don't know if the sound would sound great, especially since im looking for SQ. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I have a old school rockford fosgate PUNCH DVC 12". rated at 400wrms but will easily take 500-600wrms.
    Excellent SQ and gets quite loud in a sealed box.

    $100 shipped.

    I have a pair of Adire Audio Koda 8" subs. $130 shipped on the pair. You wont find a better sounding driver for less. They use XBL^2 technology to achieve a very low distortion driver. The pair would be perfect on 300wrms.

    Take a look at the Ultra A-12's. They are specifically SQ oriented. They are great quality subs. I have a couple people doing reviews on them on the forum and they seem to love them so far. They arnt terribly expensive either. Pm me if you are interested!

    Re: Looking with an 8" to 12" under 500 watts.

    I may get flamed but here goes...

    I have a pair of JL w1v2 8's in 1.4 cuft tuned to 33hz.....
    Sound outstanding and can dig very deep. In this box(final nominal load is 2 ohms) the take the power from my current Xtant 1001xd...500+ clean rms @ 2 ohms.
    I will say that they may like just a tad smaller box...maybe 1.2 ish.

    For what ever the reason, the 8" w1v2 is a great sounding driver, IMO 10X better than the other w1v2's.



    Silently stalking you through glass....

    Re: Looking with an 8" to 12" under 500 watts.

    I have a pair of new in box idq8v3 dual 4. The pair would do well on 500w and sound good 140shipped. The adire koda's would sound amazing though, if I was planning an sq install id buy them, but I love loud.

    Re: Looking with an 8" to 12" under 500 watts.

    How much space you can give up? Budget? If you can play with 2cu ft, one cheap and easy possibility is to put a 2012 Alpine Type-S 15 inch sub into a 2cu ft sealed box. Power handling is at 500watts. This latest design supposedly sounds very good. One of the few underhung voice coil designs on the market. If you need a more compact box, consider Image Dynamics IDQ12 in a 1cu ft sealed box. These are good SQ subwoofers, but can get pretty loud with xmax being at 19mm and power handling >500watts. Expensivish, but not too bad. If 1cu ft is still too big, consider Alpine's SBR (R8 in a custom ported box). These are very good subwoofers. In this box, it supposedly can only handle about 300-350watts because it's tuned too low. Infinity Kappa 120.9w should be happy in 1cu ft sealed box with 500watts too.
