    trying to ask questions in the main room is useless.

    i'm looking to put a 10" sub in my '06 trailblazer. i'm looking to get this for the rear of the truck...

    and the information/notes, say that the enclosure will hold a "type 1" subwoofer. i have no idea what that means...

    can someone explain to me what that is, so i can go about picking out a subwoofer without fucking myself :hs:

    got this off of crutchfields site...is this really, all that means

    so basically i can pick any sub as long as the dimensions and air space requirements are accounted for in this enclosure?

    Crutchfeild likes to oversimplify things like this.

    The enclosure is 0.65cuft gross so you need a driver that will work in 0.65 gross.

    If you need more help give us a price range and how much power you have/are willing to pay for so we may suggest some subwoofers that will work in this enclosure.

    i'd guess a rockford sub would probably work in that. or a diamond.

    so far i've came up with a wattage range of no more than 300-400 watts. i'm not looking for anything over whelming. I've found a JL10W3 i like for $165 new, and i believe it was 300watts rms. i would like to think that wouldn't be over doing for an everyday/simple set up.

    and i would need a suggestion on a nice amp to power it.

    and when you say a driver that will work in 0.65 gross, you mean in the specs of the sub, you go by the driver displacement?

    sorry for all the noob questions

    Working in 0.65 gross means that the reccomended sealed enclosure size is 0.65cuft minus the driver's displacement or a number that doesnt deviate too far from that.

    That is, of course, if you dont want to turn the sub magnet side out which would free up the driver displacement.

    A slightly more technical version is that the calculated Qts for the system after driver displacement (net volume) is between 0.808 and 1.000.

    naa i wouldn't want to do that. i need the back of my truck user friendly still.

    so with that enclosure, and about +/-$200 price range on a sub...what would you recommend?
