    Any suggestions on one beastly 12 to run in a sealed box?

    Im looking to run one 12 in a sealed box. I have a T1000bd amp to run it and it wil be going in the place of my back seat in my truck. I think ported would be a little much because of the lack of airspace in my truck cab so i was thinking sealed for tighter bass. Any suggestions on a sub that will be plenty loud on that amp for around 3-400 dollars at max? Any suggestions on selaed vs ported? Im just starting to get into non mainstream brands. Im interested in the fi q 12 and the hdc 3.0.

    I like the dc lv 3 but it says its not reccommend for a sealed box? im not apposed to going ported if it will sound good in a truck cab im just afraid that i will hear the port air being pushed out? Im more of a sql guy i love loud but not if the sub only screams on some frequencies and and not all.

    The bigger question is precisely how much space do you have to work with?

    TC LMS-R may be a good fit for you as well. IIRC there was one with some costmetic issues on here for short money not long ago.
