    I've seen many out there like the DD, JL, etc. But what can you really expect out of lets say a pair?

    A pair would be a good addition to some after market components, nothing to much

    Yeah I saw that on another post. I was really thinking of add 2 6.5" in a center console to add some low end on my "awesome" BOSE system in the Avalanche. I put in a DD HU so running a small amp wouldn't be a problem now while keeping the BOSE system in tacked.

    if you're going to put 2 of those in why not a single 8" sub.....

    In a good T line box you may be surprised. I have a guy with Mini Clubman that did the 6w3 in the 6x9 location and it sounds full. Not super spl monster but a good full sound with a little thu mp.

    I'm very limited on space since I want to put it under (or cover it with) the "shell" of the stock console. If I move things around I might be able to squeeze .75-.85 of space. I figured after all displacement the space left would be better used for the 6.5" ported.

    That's kinda what I'm looking for. I have another "toy" that I'll be getting my bass fix out of. This is just my daily and I want to fill in the bass with something full and not have it sound like the kids are working over time, lol.

    ok so with limited space I know Rockfords got a small PUNCH 300watt amp that might work out for you.

    Amazon.com: Rockford Fosgate PBR300X1 Punch BRT 300 Watt Ultra compact Mono Amplifier: Car Electronics

    they have a 300 and 500 watt version of this small amp...I guess they just came out with the 500 watt.

    As far as the amp (smaller is better of corse) I'm not as concerned with as I can slide it under one of the seats. If not then under the rear seat. I was more really interested in finding out if I should bother with 6.5" or if it wouldn't make much of a difference.
