    Kove audio 10" Thoughts?

    So a buddy of mine gave me a Kove audio 10". Its a single vc, and it reads 6 ohm? does that sound right? Anyway, I was going to build a couple boxes for it and check out the differences. Anybody have experience with these or know what they want, in terms of a box? Here is a few pics of it that he sent me with his phone. I will be powering this with my aq2200.

    TC built, TC7 motor. More of a SQ driver. Could be just like the 6 ohm Eclipse drivers that had 6 ohm coils.

    May have also been a 4 ohm driver and coil has been hot like SPL said.

    It's pretty much this driver, likes small sealed enclosures. ---> TC Sounds TC-7 10"

    With power and EQ, I would go with this. Looks like .7 cubes or so.
