    Recommended Enclosures for SD-3 10

    Hello all, I recently purchased an SD-3 10 for my Ford F-150 Supercrew. I've been searching the webs for the "perfect" enclosure, but they are either too big, too ugly, or ported (or crap).

    Curious what others have done with the SD-3 10s that might help me narrow down my search.

    Thanks!

    CSCStang on here can build you a nice box. the new SD-3 line of shallows were designed for sealed boxes if i recall correctly

    They are designed to work well in a sealed, but will do well ported also. I'm starting on a box for the SD3 10 tomorrow. 2007 GMC Sierra under the back bench.

    Re: Recommended Enclosures for SD-3 10

    Recommended enclosure is .5 cu ft sealed. I am running mine in that currently and it sounds pretty nice firing forward in my F-150 super crew. I have the smaller portion of the rear seat flipped up and the sub is sitting right there . Lows would be much better if you can down fire it but I think the upper bass may suffer a bit. It sounds good enough for me in its current orientation but I may try it ported when I have the chance to build another enclosure. It won't get super loud but it has a nice sound to it that will compliment most music. If you want to boom this isn't the sub for you but if you want some nice bass to fill out your music then it should make you pretty happy

    Bingo. It would be my ultimate preference if only the people in my car knew I had a Sub. I don't want to shake and rattle anything. I just want to be immersed in good sound. =D

    CSCStang is going to build me a box, pretty excited.

    Fwiw, Jacob from SD just emailed me back, before displacement, the box should be ~ 0.62 ft^3.

    Re: Recommended Enclosures for SD-3 10

    How does it sound? How does it do with rap? Can you feel it in your chest? I'm thinking of doing 2 of these in my truck (same model as yours) but I'm so torn between 2 10s and 2 12s... feedback appreciated.

    I got mine purely for SQ...And for that it is perfect. I don't have it maxed out or extremely loud. If you doubled it up and added a little more gain I imagine it would sound great, but this is my first system with a dedicated sub. It would certainly fill the cab EASILY, kick drums sound incredible.

    I don't have much rap, but I turned on a few Nelly/usher tracks I have and it sOunded pretty **** to me

    If you want to dig down super low, you may want to err on the side of the 12s, but for the amount of space these save, really tough to beat.

    Thanks for the feedback. How did you describe the rap though? Whatever curse word you used got beeped out and I can't tell if it was negative or positive towards the low end bass lol.
