Summary: I originally a had another high end sub combo in mind. But after doing my homework I decided to go with JL Audio and boy am I happy! These bad boys POUND! Make sure you buy an EBC for your amp because some songs will leave you deaf. I was also very surprised on the size of the box, I still have plenty of room in my trunk.
Pros: Great sound Tons of Punch Handles quick bass kicks Perfect size
Summary: I was upgrading an old system and in the process downsizing from an Alpine Type-R 12" in a large ported box. I decided a sealed 10" sub is what I needed for my current needs. After initially trying a Kicker box and returning it, I gave this JL Audio enclosure a shot. I could not be more pleased. This 10" hits just as deep as my 12" and takes up 1/3 the space in the trunk. Sure it does not hit as hard, but it has excellent quality and it still pretty loud.
Pros: Well-built, small form factor, great sound for a 10" sub
Cons: None. It costs more than other subs, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: Let me start by saying I had a ported 10" MMATS sub prior to this - which ended up dying on me. That thing thumped, but the SQ was a bit muddy for my taste. I like the thump, but SQ is equally important if not more. I replaced it with this and was worried it would be to quite and not be able to handle my JL 600/1 AMP (this sub is rated at 500RMS). Boy was I wrong! This thing is half the size and 90% of the THUMP my last ported box/speaker combo! It's amazing...
Pros: Big thump. Precise. Small package. First perfect in in the trunk of sedan.
Summary: Great package! The box is beautiful and the sub is great. I have it installed in a 14 GTI and it fast response in a smaller car it perfect for bring out the bass of any type of music, I listen to rock and contemporary rock and it works great.
