Default What 6 1/2 sub to go with?

So I’m beginning the research process for my next vehicle(Fiat 500 turbo) and I’m looking at multiple 6 1/2” subs. It will be ran off of the factory amp which is rated at 46 watts X 2 @ 2 ohms. So I am looking at dual 2 ohm 6 1/2” sub(I’m only going to run a single sub). The box also must be smaller than 1 cubic foot.

Here are some of the subs that I have found that meet the criteria;

Sundown SA V.1
Ampere Audio 2.5 RVE
SKAR Audio EVL-6.5
CT Sounds Meso
Memphis 15-PRX6D2
KICKER Cwrt672 CompRT
Digital Designs 506D

If there are any other ones that I missed then let me know. So which one would work best in this application? 92 watts(46 watts X 2 at 2 ohms) total and a box no larger than 1 cubic foot to save the small amount of cargo room that it does have.

I have a pair of the EVL 6.5's. They are ok but mechanical limits are slim.

It would be a toss up on the Sundown Audio X 6.5 V.2 the CT and the DD's. But I realize you have a power restriction. Maybe look into Massive or even DS18 see if something meets your power range.

I love massive audios sumo 6.5s. I'm using them as my midbass, 3 per door in a sealed application for 45hz-120hz range. Best frame/magnet I've seen on a 60$ 1.5" coil speaker! Cast non stamped basket direct leads. I'd like to see a speaker that beats this for the price.

no idea yet. The old EMF audio coaxials they are replacing are loose as hell compared to these stiff buggers, I can't push them 1/4 down without worrying about damaging the cone. I would say the coil would probably go or the spider would rip before they would bottom out especially if you kept them above 40hz which a 6.5 inch speaker definitely isn't made to play much lower than.. I looked at all 6.5 subs and thought these where the best for the dollar! I challenge someone to find me a better quality 6.5 for only 58$ on eBay. Looking forward to hearing all of them in my doors!

I always had that 100hz to 40hz gap in my system. I see what your going for with these. I like to see how far I can take limits on coils suspensions and what ever else is gonna come unglued. I am running two evl skar 6.5's to the numbers box and I can just about move my wipers lol. Now this is in a 01 vw beetle just about peak watts maybe a little dirty. Im looking for a zv5 10 frame and motor. I got a drop in for my old one and someone baught it from me regardless of the spider tear. I have a cab 1600.1 I like running. sold the x8's and scv 2000 I like them as well.
