    Subwoofer Recommendation/Sound Science

    Ended up getting a used W3v3 and I'm REALLY satisfied with the sound. In the same 1.0 cu. box the Alpine was in. This is pretty much the bass I was looking for. I wish it was a slight bit louder but an upgrade to my HU should fix that or perhaps a second w3, but I'm hesitant on giving up trunk space. The bass is so clean and precise, unlike the Alpine where most of the time it was a lot of overhang with the bass. Even my friends $66 champions were cleaner than the Alpine. Now I know how to install my own sub though. I'm wondering what the w0's are like? and what are the best SQ subs available right now? The box is slightly smaller than recommended specs, can this cause an issue?

    Found a deal locally... Tempted to get these and build a box, and sell the Alpine/ or give to a family member.

    If I'm correct... I measured my prefab box that's supposed to be 1.00 cu ft. 13.70 width (in) 13.50 height (in) 13.60 length (in)

    Sad thing is I'm still with my stock headunit and fronts. So no eq and proper crossover. I'm just more curious on how it would look on a graph.

    How do you guys measure the frequency response of your subs?

    Yep, still with the sealed.

    Now that I've had this sub for a while now, and ran some low frequency response tests, I noticed the sub has a HUGE peak at 40hz and drops off heavily then. With bass guitar songs and songs with fast bass the sub has a hard time keeping up with the changing notes. I've started looking at building my own box but the only issue is the little tiny wedges on the inside, I don't know how I'll cut that perfectly with a saw. Any advice or can I leave that part out???

    Thanks for that, it's definitely what I hear. Upper bass has a lot of slam but then quickly rolls off, while having a hard time differentiating bass guitar. EDM, not really a problem as it doesn't matter as much (imo). I listen to mainly metal, rock, EDM, with some indie pop thrown around in that mix.

    I know all that, but from what some people on this thread are saying, doesn't seem like that.

    What is sound quality to you guys? For me I would like a sub that can actually differentiate bass notes. With the Alpine it sounds like it's all mushed together. I've heard it in HT systems, and my friend's kicker does it too. As far as going lower, that's nice, but I'd rather have clearer bass notes that cut off rather than bass that blends together & deeper response.

    I might be able to get a video comparison w/ my buddies cars since I have a pretty decent mic to use. We'll see.

    Yes, I went with a prefab sealed, and my plan now is to build one myself (using your box) over time. I just didn't want to wait forever to get my sub installed and would like to use this as a learning experience as well. Also now hearing three cars with prefabs, I thought I would be able to get similar performance but that actually isnt the case.

    Here's some measurements and pics. Someone told me I should check my gain with a multimeter. https://imgur.com/a/8KuSyrk

    12" SWS with a 1.0 cu prefab from Sonic. It is a cube.
