1.9 is that total cubic feet? Or per sub? pioneer's new subs are 100 bucks each and they are straight. 1 cubic foot per 10" svc sub.  800 watt max.

Two CV HED dual 4's.  They do sound good in small sealed.  But, just like any other sub, if you want to make people take notice of you coming up the street two blocks away, you'll have to give up a lot more displacement for the subs.

I personally don't want to hear someone booming up the block.  If you're more like me and want to hear it loud and clear IN the car, this is a good budget subwoofer.  Make sure you have invested in the Dynamat, Fatmat, oatmealmat, what'sitsface-mat, mat-mat...or whateverthename-mat...to take out the car rattles.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

I will suppose that, by now, you will have actually LOOKED AT the linked page and will have realized that the information you seek is spelled out.  A couple of times.

Nobody is saying anything about tens, because you said that your first choice is 12s. I prefer tens. Tens are good. I have had tens in my last five cars. Tens are good. You ultimately are going to do what you want to do. Tens are good. You have proven this. Tens are good. I like tens so much, that I have two arc audio tens running off of a very old mitsubishi tube amp for my home theatre system. (I think i misrepresented the amp as a jbl in a past thread) Tens are good.
