    10" subwoofer suggestions

    after many years of service my jl audio 10" woofer is on its way out.i don't know much about woofers,so i am asking what would be the best woofer? the t/a has the factory monsoon head unit and speakers,plus a subthump stealth box,and rockford-fosgate amp (not sure how many watts the amp pushes).thanks.

    I had a Memphis Audio dual voice coil 10" in my last setup and it sounded pretty good. I hated the JL in the stealth box and got rid of it pretty soon after I got it.

    I have heard a few different ones in a 4th gen. Right now I have an RE audio 10'' in a stealth box that I would never change. Alpine type R, Infinity Kappa Perfect, and a JL w3v2 all sound stellar as well.

    You need to make sure the sub matches well with the amp. For example, if you get a dual voice coil 4-ohm sub, that means you'll need to connect the 2 voice coils in parallel (2-ohm load) or in series (8-ohm load). If your amp works best with a 4-ohm load, you wouldn't want a DVC 4-ohm sub.

    i agree the JL w3v2 sounds great...but for the stealth enclosure for f-bodys, the w1v2 sounds better...not as loud...but way better sound quality- at half the price....i had the w3v2 in my z28 w/ the JL 250/1 ....w1v2 sounds better IMO....w3's need more air space....ported if possible to sound its best....the w1 was made for small enclosures.

    I have an Alpine Type R 10" and it's awesome - sounds great at every level. If you're concerned about $$ ... try to find an '07 or '08 Type R, I got an '07 model in '08 for $90 from an audio shop. Definitely worth every cent you spend

    subwoofer= JL audio 10w1-4....amp= rockford-fosgate punch 45.2...i'm sure amp is at least 10 years old sub is probably about 7 years old.

    If you liked your old JL...then pick up another......if the amp is 2 ohm stable you could get a 4 ohm dual voice coil sub. Either the JL w1 or JL w3 will suit your needs.

    JL Audio 10W1v2 4ohm model would be excellent in f-body with said amplifier.

    i looked at the subthump website and that image dynamic sub was one listed as "suggested for best performance".price is right too.thanks for linking that website,their prices seem to be a bit lower than crutchfield.
