    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    I only mentioned 1.5 cu ft for the Dayton because that's what the manufacturer suggested. If you have a way to run some mock ups, I'd totally appreciate it. I'm in no hurry. Open to the proper box size and $200 or less driver for mostly rock in the trunk of my car. Thanks so much!!

    I hear you saying I need to experiment myself. I wish I knew more about where to start. I kinda feel like finally making some decisions is the starting point. I’m happy to look at other drivers. That’s why I’m here, to pick the brains of those more knowledgeable than I.

    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    System update...I found a JX1000/1 locally, so that's going to be my amp. It can run 500W at 4 ohm or 1000W at 2 ohm. Was going between the Infinity 1000W and the Dayton 10" Reference HO-44. With the amp nailed down I think I'll spend the extra money for the Dayton. Just need a nice ported box design, 1.5 cu ft 13" tall and 15" deep...whatever length. Lots of questions about tuning. I've heard 30 to 38 for trunk mounted sub in a Chrysler 300. That's the last decision...so many decisions. Appreciate everyone's help.

    I wanted to keep the box at a size where I could fold down the rear seat to use the pass through if possible. That is a 2.04 cu ft box. I could go up to 3.4 cu ft if necessary. If going one way or the other gives me amazing bass I would consider that. I’m not needing too loud. A 10 or 12 would be a massive addition to the stock unit. I would be nice to be able to test some setups in my car.

    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    You’ve been pushing a 10 for me and I have to give it heavy consideration. I’m sure you know more about it than me. When I go around to local shops I’ve heard some 10 recommendations as well. I never know if they are trying to make a sale or if they mean it. When they play songs I like I’m not blown away. I think it’s because they said they are running too low of power. Even a W7 10 was not great. There are two songs, if you think a 10 will kill it for those, that works for me. The opening to Hotel California with the long bass notes. Second is Nightmare by Avenge Sevenfold. Two different songs so kind of a challenge. Looking for one sub to give me the business on both songs.

    Yea man, I appreciate what you are saying. I'll have someone design something for sure. Now, where is that dude?

    Driver might come down to the enclosure size. 1.36 is a lot different than 2.5 cuft. If I can get the same sound from a smaller box, I would prefer that.

    So basically any combination of drivers and amps I have will get me where I want to go in the right enclosure? I was going to build a sealed box and put a properly sized flared port in it. At least that's what I was going to do. I thought it was that simple, but maybe not. I'll search for the design guy. Really appreciate your help.

    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    Yes, decent amount of quality bass for mostly rock, the rest a mix of 80's and practically anything else. I'm going to build the enclosure. Thinking ported and tuned to the specs of the driver. The stock system is not bad in the 300, just need to put a little bump in the trunk.

    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    When I first started this journey I was looking at that Infinity amp with the Kappa 1200W driver. Looks like things are going full circle in a way. Thanks for the info, I'll look at that one again. I guess I could have gotten the JBL amp and the Stadium 1224 driver and had the same setup.

    About have amp nailed down, opinions?

    Looking to run one of these drivers in a ported box. Dayton RSS315HO-44 12" 700W or SSA Demon 12” 550W Have amps narrowed down to- Pioneer GM-D9701, RMS 800W x 1 @ 2 ohms- $162 Audio Pipe APMI-1500, RMS 964W x 1 @ 2 ohms- $124 (maybe too much for the SSA?) NVX VAD 10001, RMS 760W x 1 @ 2 ohms- $153 Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Yes, another 'which sub' topic

    Part of the sealed is space. I've also read that sealed is tighter. I've also considered a 10 but am worried I'll lose the rumble. I have a 12" in my home and it rumbles at low but shakes the roof when it's going. Maybe it's apples and oranges. I had a 10" in an extra cab truck years ago, it sounded great. I appreciate the info and I'll look more into it. As for the question at hand, do you have a preference regarding manufacturers? Much thanks!

    Yes, another 'which sub' topic

    I have a '16 Chrysler 300 with the 6 speaker Alpine system. Sounds good, but needs a little more low end. I'm not looking to compete and I'd prefer quality over loudness. I've been researching this over two months and I can't get my head around it. The more I look the most rabbit holes I find. I've looked at Alpine, Infinity, Fosgate, NVX, Sundown, Skar, DC, Dayton, SSA, Soundcubed, JL, Arc...everyone has good and bad to say about all those. Most of those I can't hear locally so I'm hopeful y'all can get me going in the right direction. Number of subs preferred: 1 Size preferred (if configuration allows): 12 Budget: $200 for the sub Power to be used (which amp(s), include which resistance): I'll buy an amp at the same time that matches with the sub. Space available (take measurements, do not guess): I have a trunk, the only restriction is 13.25" in height. I want to build a sealed box. Goals: I'd like to know it's there at low volume and would also like it to get after it when it's turned up. Listening habits: I'm a drummer so I listen to everything. Mostly rock, hard rock (double bass) and 80's. Preferred brands/subs/whatever: I don't really care.
