Ive been pondering about getting the JL 8 inch microsub. Meant to be good for small spaces... Unless I could get a 10 w7?!

Dam you Sumil for letting me see this clip!

On a serious note.. Your car dude.. WOW. It's so tasteful!
LOL thanks dude appreciate the comments

JL also do a shallow sub for you guys wanted to keep the space and come over to the dark side

W6 is an awesome sub but its completely your preference on what you are after! W6 is an SQ sub, W7 just hits hard as hell! its a novelty factor with how much movement you get from a W7

obviously their are loads of alternatives out there

what you thinking of going for then dude?

Oh i didn't mean you should get a W6! Just offering some different advice including making a custom corner enclosure. W7 is a great quality sub no question and obviously people want different things from their music.

Im not really sure what im getting at the moment. Im looking at maybe a 12w6 and a morel sc12, which are pure SQ subs but im also looking at some SQL ones, like Soundsplinter. Its going to take me ages to decide though and need to look at a lot more All i know is that i want a 12" in a corner loaded enclosure.

Funny enough, I want 10W7 in the corner. But its depth is 8" which would be a problem. Also never played with fiberglass stuff, so can't make my own box.

I've never played with fibreglass either but it sounds like fun! The process is pretty simple though.

If you can get the optimum volume of a 10w7 in that corner then you should be ok. I think you should be able to get 1-1.5cu ft.

I am after 1.25 cu ft only but TBH, I do not think that is possible.

At the top of that making this fiberglass project does not help.

So I will end up with sub box. Once you have done one for yourself, I will simply nick that one

Haha nick my one.

I think if you do try 1.25 in the corner it might stick out a bit. Only know for sure once someone measures it. But i think 1 cu ft should be fine.

Minimum recommendation for 10W7 is 1.25 cu ft so dont want to go for corner sub and risk tight box with rubbish bass where amp has to push harder.

Sorry P5 MUL, wouldnt go beyong this, but your 10W7 made us discussing this. Just want to save some space.

Yeah the W7 needs more than 1cu ft, and would be a shame if it wasn't in its optimum. Better to build the right enclosure, maybe one of those zen enclosures:

Thanks for the pic. Nice job!

I'm actually thinking about this one:

http://www.salesafter.eu/product_inf...e--primed.html

as it's over 70 cheaper than SSDD. In fact I think SSDD look overpriced. Even the genuine BMW diffuser is only 263!

they are cheaper dude as the center's not in CF! they come plain black all over

people pay extra for CF on trims (the CF part for that diffuser alone if you bought it separately is 100+ if you can find it) so a complete price of 270 is about right

post some pics of yours when you get it!
