    12" Sealed Sub recommendation

    Hi everyone, I have a WRX wagon and would like to put a single 12" in the back. I have a directed 600D amp that puts out ~600wrms @ 1ohm so am looking for a dual 2ohm voice coil sub.

    I listen to pretty much everything, but primarily dubstep and electronica. My budget is around 200...what kind of sub would be ideal for this setup? I don't want a huge enclosure so was thinking something sealed would be best, also since it will be in the cabin I want it to sound as clean as possible.

    I already have my front soundstage taken care of with infinity primus components and a RF 150x2 amp

    Been looking at the Sundown SA12 and RE SEXv2 ....anything else that is better for the money? My budget is 200 but that doesn't mean I want to spend that much.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: 12" Sealed Sub recommendation

    Ok so I am picking up a nicely built custom 1.535 net CF sealed 12" enclosure. Can I get some recommendations for subs in this enclosure powered by my Directed 600D? Could maybe stretch to 250 for my budget.

    You might check out image dynamics IDQ12. They seem to have pretty good reviews for a sealed 12.



    But honey, you don't understand, I need to buy this......

    Those look awesome but it looks like ideal sealed box volume is .9 CF....not sure how the extra space would affect the sound.

    Re: 12" Sealed Sub recommendation

    if you're gonna go with a 1.5 sealed enclosure, you might aswell get a 1.5cf ported enclosure. Recommended enclosure ported is 1.5 - 2cf. Would sound alot better and have more output. Just a thought. And I also pm'd you

    keep an eye on that directed amp, they don't really seam to like running at 1 ohm. make sure you set your gains correctly

    Re: 12" Sealed Sub recommendation

    Ok so I've talked to some friends and it looks like I will have some help building a ported box. Can I have some sub suggestions for the below requirements?

    Ported under 1.75 cf, 600-1000wrms....under 250 for the sub or less. Want something very well balanced for ALL music types.

    Our SSA Gcon would be just about perfect. It will be back in stock shortly.

    Re: 12" Sealed Sub recommendation

    I vote SSA or the Obsidian audio 12" ported.. With the money you save from the sub you can build a nice ported box.



    Sub amp: Ampere Audio TFE 8.0

    Mids amp: Ampere Audio 150.4

    Subs: Two Tantric Sounds SHD 18's
