the box is sealed, i bought it thinking about buying a rocky foss sub and bearing in mind bigger sealed boxes offer better sound...

i don't know if i want the rocky fosgate n e more, so i need some other sub suggestions.

i've looked at JL, alpine, audiobahn, lightning audio, but my box is too big for the subs to work well!

n e suggestions?

budge it anything around 150 mark

cheers for n e help

sorry (doh! ) 12" mate.

i like the sound of JL subs but i was looking at the specs of them and it seemed te max size was 1.75 for a 12"....

suppose i could cut the hole bigger for a 15" JL - is that wise?

k seen the specs for the W3 and my box is too big...

originally i wanted a rockford fosgate sub which would fit nicely into this box ( a range of 0.9-2.79 cubic foot)

it's the 3412 BTW....

another sub i've found which works well in this box in the Kicker comp VR 400RMS bugger - n e opinions on this one?

actually from what i can find the Rockford 3412 and the kIcker are my only choices for around 140 so which would you go for?

the amp will be a Kenwood monblock 400RMS...

ta for n e help

Fill your box full of slats of wood glued down to reduce the size inside or port the box but get it tuned correctly, a 12" ported would sound nice in 2cuft.
