Subject: Need a quality shallow sub
Date Posted: June 30, 2005 at 1:38 AM

I'm looking to install 3 10" subs behind the rear seat of my F350 Crew Cab.  The sub needs to be as shallow as possible.  I am looking at the the JL Audio 10w1v2.  Its only 4-3/8 deep.    Any other ideas?   Also, what amp would be good?  If I got 3 4ohm subs, i'll need a 1ohm stable amp. 

The rest of my system consists of: 

HU:  Alpine CDA-9855
Front Staging: Diamond Audio HEX S600a
Front staging amp:  PG 475ti
Subs: ??
Sub amp: ??

Thanks!

www.reaudio.com look at the RE-series 10"s

I'm not sure about the mounting depth though, i'm sure its close to the JLs. For more info on the subs, just call RE up.

Diamond DS10D2/DS10D4 have a 4.8" mounting depth.

Alpine Type-R I beleive are pretty shallow as well.
https://www.alpine-usa.com/

Eclipse makes a shallow mount sub I think too, not sure which one it would be though.

RE as mentioned above.

I am sure there are more that I cannot think of offhand.

Are you looking for SQ or SPL? The stuff above is mostly SQ. Also why 3 subs instead of just two? 3 tend to make odd wiring combinations.

Alpine type Rs? Almost 6 in" deep. Go back to square one. JL's 10" W1V2 are by far the best sounding " shallow  mount ", " small enclosure " sub out there. Use three 8 ohm tens for a 2.7 ohm load. I've done this to your truck and it sounds great.

I wasn't sure on the Alpine's, the website doesn't list mounting depth, niether do most others unfortunately. I use last years shallow mount Diamonds and like the way they sound alot, very comparable (to me at least) to the the W1V2s which I have heard in another truck.

It's all personal preferance of coarse.

How would you wire that to get the 2.7ohm load?

Use the AVI SL500 sub for this application, it is what I use in the new trucks like this. If you cannot find one at a local dealer, send me a PM and I'll find it for you. Here is a link https://www.avisound.com/ with the following info on this sub.

Mounting depth has been substantially reduced by positioning two magnets within the chassis, instead of one on the back. Dual voice coils allow maximum flexibility and are wound on a composite polyamide former for high power handling and output. The cone material is deeply convoluted to increase its tortional rigidity, and the SL-500 front suspension is the first in the world to use anechoic rubber material, to provide improved definition.

This is a dual voice coil subwoofer driver with an extremely shallow mounting depth of just 92 mm (3.6"). It may be connected in parallel (2 ohms), series (8 ohms) or at 4 ohms each from two amplifier channels (not recommended). The suggested operating range is 45 to 430 Hz.

For "stealth" installations, the remarkably small enclosure required for the SL-500 dramatically increases the number of practical mounting locations in any vehicle.

Eclipse does not make a shallow mount sub at all. (too bad)

I don't know, an all Canadian made subwoofer...



That's a really shallow mount depth though, and it only takes about 150 watts of power if I am reading the pdf correctly. I assume it is an SQ sub? Never heard of the company until you mentioned them.

These I have seen and heard personally... AWESOME sounding woofers!

It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Maybe we Canadians know a thing or two as well. When I first came to this forum, not many people were aware of Eclipse either....

BTW, AVI has been around for many moons now, not a new company at all. All you guys had best take note of this great speaker company.

NOOOOOO!!! Don't do it! No Earthquake subs! I was afraid somebody would say these in this thread... I saw tham at the CES this year, and the rocking modes alone are enought to make me recommend AGAINST them. Can anybody say 'non-linearities out the ASS'? These things are scary bad (and I DON'T mean "bad" as in "good") woofers! They sounded like CRAP in the demo car they had there...

Thanks for all of the replies.  Does anyone know where I can get some JL 10w1v2-8 subs at a good price?

Thanks!
