    12" free-air or IB subwoofer

    Item(s) Wanted: A decent SQ 12" infinite baffle/free-air subwoofer

    I have a wide trunk that is 26 cubesor 736 li. This will be mounted on my rear deck
    My amp will only put out ~250W/400W on its 5th channel, so I don't need it to be huge. I won't able to power it entirely..!

    Looking for high Xmax, Qts and low Fs



    Possible Condition of Item(s): Any, not broken



    Price Range: $100+

    Re: 12" free-air or IB subwoofer

    The JBL GTO sub I suggested has been used for IB by Matt Borgardt, formerly of Image Dynamics, for a customer's vehicle. He used 2 of the 15s, but the 12 is very similar.
