Im gonna have 1.5 cb ft for the whole box and 1 inch of clearance to the seat. With that said im looking at these sub options.

1 12in sundown sd4 0.8-1.0 sealed $300 if i go this route i could potentially add another im just trying to stay on the lower side of my budget
3 10in image dynamic idv4 1.2-2.4 sealed $390 i have no first hand experience with this company
2 10in image dynamic idv4 0.8-1.6 sealed $260
1 10in image dynamic idv4 1.1-1.6 ported $130
1 10in sundown sld 1.0 ported $200 or 2 sealed at 1.0

Any recommendations or experience with any of these subs would be helpful.

A couple of quality 8s ported will get crazy ..these days 4 quality 6.5s can get crazy in that space

Id throw a pair of 10s in there on 2-3k @ 32-35 htz if you have room for a pair. For a single at that 1.5 a single 10 should work

i looked at the sundown sa 8 and x8 but it would cost a lot more to fill that box out goin that route and get less cone area
4 8s in my crx shut down 4 15 in an envoy and a wall of 12s in a truck at one show i went too ...4 10s in my wrangler shut down 6 or 8 18 kicker solo xs in a H1 Hummer at a show in Arkansas ..cone area isn't always everything ..both vehicles had at least double the power I had the hummer had at least 4 times the power a wall of batteries and 6 alternators ....

Could you source me an 8 that has less then 5in of mounting depth and doesn't need room for back venting. Im having a hard time finding subs that fit those guidelines. The sundown sld looks promising and would have enough airspace for 1 of them buts thats about it. Is one 10 ported gonna out perform 2-3 10s sealed?

It should be close to equal...and stronger low end ...

Ya 5 1/2 is just barely to deep. I figured 3 10s at 300rms each 900 total sealed would out perform 1 10 ported at 600rms.

It's actually 5-7/16", but I understand. I just dropped four 8's behind the seat of my Dodge standard cab. Your best bet is 4-6-½'s if you are on a budget or two JL 13tw5's sealed if you aren't on a budget. Just being honest.

Why 4 6 1/2s over 3 10s sealed. Wouldnt the 10s go a lot further?
