Well, I picked up a new car...2013 328i and I am quite happy with the Harmon Kardon sound system. The only thing it needs is a little more low end. I do occasionally listen to some rap, dubstep etc. so I don't want to give up too much around 30hz. I know ported would make me happier but I'm more interested in space and aesthetics over SPL in this car.
At some point I plan on fiberglassing an enclosure into the drivers side corner of the trunk to house either a single 10 or a pair of 8's. I think the volume could end up being something around .5-.75 cuft, which I could probably get a little more if I needed to. I've got a rockford p500 that's on the shelf and am confident it will be enough power for my goal.
I want a sealed enclosure for the sake of space, this system doesn't have to get loud. I just want it to sound good, my other car does both quite well.
I would love nothing more than to stick to Sundown as that's all I've owned for subs...Basically an SD3 10 or SD3 8's, whenever they arrive, is what I'm looking at. I would love to know an estimated delivery on the 8's to plan this out a little better. I considered getting a yardsale sd3 10 and building a mdf box just to see how it sounds.
Of course I'm not really sure when I'll get a chance to do the enclosure with some other projects I have going on and riding season coming up fast.
Anyone want to chime in on thoughts of the SD series? 12 vs 10 vs 2-8's?
Maybe other subs that will do well in an enclosure that small and have good sq?
