    if you're planning on upgrading soon, I'd suggest picking up a sundown SA-12, it will sound good on 500 for now, and when you upgrade it will take 1000+ with ease.

    most dc subs fail from being in too big of a box and someone trying to push them very hard ,

    yea thats what i was thinking.. something that can take 500 but if i wanna upgrade have some room to play.. i'm looking into a 4dr car so i will have more room for another sub though but can't see myself running anything higher then 1500 watts if i upgrade.. more then likely ima run a 1000/1 jl audio (same model that i have in 500/1).. UNLESS you got a better amp.. i can get the 1000/1 for 140 used so there not really pricey in florida.

    it all depends what year and such and such.. i read reviews and i forget what year maybe 08 or 10 they made the subs pretty good and they dont have this problem.. mine is a '11 model..

    my box is in spec, clean power from a jl. gains ant even that high.. maybe it didnt like being ported but it only had maybe 24hrs of play if that.. kinda sad..

    i found this vid
    1 Sundown SA-12 in action - YouTube
    @2:50 he shows it in action.. looks like he had a square box at one time.. can i do this if the specs line up?

    Go with a bigger box to compensate for the low power and you'll get just as loud as the recommended box with more power. Hoffman's Iron Law if you need further explination.


    And here's a good square sub. haha

    if you do a compression box you can get very loud and low on very little power as well
