    Looking for a budget 12. small space. 600 rms.

    In search of a 12" sub.
    Budget is about 100-120
    Running off a jbl 600.1
    Going in a extended cab silverado, downfiring.
    Box is 1.2 cu [email protected] ported and 5.75 mounting depth

    any suggestions?

    Current dinosaur pioneer sub is overpowered and gets sloppy at high volumes

    You will be limited with choices. 1.2 is pretty small for a 12. Not that some subs can't work in that small space, but at that price, you can't afford a sub that is optimal in 1.2. You might be better off sealing it up or making it for a 10. Alot of 10 inch subs will fit perfect in that.

    I have two re 10s of course you only need one. There rated at 310rms but I gave them about 450 each and they handled it great. They sound best in a ported box. If sell you one pretty cheap. Or both and have em as a spare or run 2.

  7. Re: Looking for a budget 12. small space. 600 rms.

    Trevor, we have a 10" Radioactive sub in dual 2 or 4 ohm that may fit your needs. It does require a little more mounting depth than you have posted but it is rated for 600 wrms, has a 2.5" voice coil, etc. if you are interested, we could work something out to put it into your price point. I guarantee you won't be let down by this sub.

    HDS200


    if you add a baffle for a 10 on the box it will leave you with 6.5 mounting and i would go with the soundqubed on 1.2 ported

    How would the DCON do?It's slightly over budget about $30.National back order tho.would fit with the added baffle

    If the Dcon was ready, it would be a top 3 choice. But I would suggest taking a look at the Sundown SD-2. I don't think we have had a single customer have one fail who used them properly.
