    Final sub choice input

    After 2 weeks of reading specs and racking my brain learning the important stuff for a sub I've narrowed it down to the following.

    Pioneer TS W2502 D2
    ID IDQ10V3 D2
    Alpine SWS 10D2
    JL 10W3V34
    Sundown SAD2

    I'm really liking the pioneer but I'm finding their specs a little unbelievable at their price. So basically I'm looking for opinions on THESE SPECIFIC subs. It's going to be a small sealed enclosure. I'm looking for SQ as a priority, but would still like to get loud. I'm coming from a Boston Acoustic G310-4 and really liked the SQ so you understand what I basically like...if you've heard them. Could you mention why you would choose one over the other as well please.

    Either JL or the ID from that list. I have to ask though, have you looked at Dayton?

    Re: Final sub choice input

    Thanks. The c2 looks very good, but I'm only looking for 10", plus the space it needs for the box is more than I want to give up. I'm not feeling the daytons. I know the amp plays a part in this, but strictly from the subs specs, what spec should I be looking at that tells me how quickly the sub responds...ex. when the note ends the sub stops?

    Re: Final sub choice input

    I went with the IDs.
    Now with the next question.
    I currently have a .49 cu.ft box, the ID requires .55 cu.ft. I've been told a difference of that amount will not make a difference or affect the performance or sound in any significant way. Is this true? What can go wrong if anything? Can/should I compensate by playing it at a lower volume until in get around to making a bigger box if its really necessary? Should I be careful turning up eq on lower freq (20-50) on sealed boxes either this undersized one or any in general?
