If you want it to "bump" this won't do it for you. A single 10, even when corner loaded rarely satisfies a bass head. And yes, you are a bass head. If the first thing you ask is if it bumps, you're a bass head. For you, I'd suggest something big (at least a 12), with a lot of power handling and a ported or bandpass box.

yeah, i'm a bass head, whatever you might want to call me, i'm running a nice set up of 2 12 alpine type r subs with 350watts of mtx power to each :) but the box is so darn annoying and inconvient. . . i'm a skier, so i think it's time to compromise.

I have the gain cranked up more then should be, but when I have the volume set at 4 the rear view mirror and side mirrors are unusable. You could do better with two twelves. Solo barics L7's are good. W7s are good. But I like the stealth box b/c I lost about two inches of useable space in my trunk.

I've got a 10 inch W6 V2 in a ported box and it sounds like 1 if not 2 12's... no kidding. I have people tell me all the time that it sounds like 2 12's back there!! Even though I love the setup, I'm having a custom enclosure built. My sub won't fit in a JL stealthbox so I'm having someone build me a "stealthbox" that it will fit into. Retail for a stealthbox is $499, I'm having mine built for $150.. Just something to consider

I've had my custom 'stealthbox' for a while. I'm using the Polk-Momo series 10".... and let me tell yah... This thing bumps (driving it with a PowerClass 2400 amp at 400W RMS @ 4ohms) . I have the 2nd most recent model. I think the newest model handles 500W RMS @ 4ohms.

I used to have a dual sub box which took up a chunk of trunk space. The lows were cleaner.... but the small sacrifice going to the 10 was worth the space savings.
