    Shallow mount 10" sub or regular ?

    The box is a sealed with15 L internal volume.

    A JBL shallow mount is recommending 14.15 L and a regular Kenwood requires 18.4 L.

    Shallow or regular for best result, and what would happen if the Kenwood went in the undersize box ?

    if you put the kenwood in a smaller than normal box it will produce a slight hump in the frequency response
    but being as its a sealed unit it will still work quite well

    shallow mount subs dont have the power handing or capability of a normal sub as yet as they are still fairly new and being devolped

    if you can stretch to it a jl audio w0 should do everything you want

    JL Audio 10W0 v3-4 are less than £61 at the moment

    But the JL also requires 18.4 L.

    I have found a regular sub that is a freak as it requires less internal volume than a shallow in its own line up and a Kenwood shallow.

    It's a Rockford Fosgate Prime Series R2D4 , requiring 16.71 L.

    What do you think ?

    what kind of music do you listen to ??

    that amp will power the rockford or the jl just make sure you wire it up properly
    the rockford is a dvc sub so has two ways of wiring it
