Yeah, they are deep suckers! And I agree, if you are going to do a stealthbox style enclosure, I'd recommend something like an Stereo Integrity BM - nasty little bastards!

I miss running active processing. The difference is night and day. It'll be similar to what I had before... a wide band (full-range) driver up top and an aggressive mid/bass in the door. Definitely a different sub woofer. I'll keep the same amp unless I choose to go with amps that have built-in processing (they be expensive though ). Maybe a new sub enclosure.

Well that works, lol. Just curious.

The W6.v2 (and the v1) is a fantastic driver!

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

I have all JL gear, XR650 components in front and TR650 components in rear running off a 450/4 then the 10W6v2 running off a 500/1. It does not set car alarms off driving down the street like alot of cars I hear driving by, but there are also no rattles because I added so much sound dampening, and the inside its very clear to full volume, and if I have it turned up full I start getting a headache. Even though I have all JL gear I think its way over priced compaired to other brands out there, I just happen to get awesome deals searching ebay for about 3 months getting everything.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

I honestly think the average person would be very happy with just adding an amp and a sub/subs. If I didnt have an Ipod I always listen to I would of left the stock deck in and tapped off the speaker wires to go to my amps. I wouldnt of even bothered with rear speakers, but I already bought them so put em in.

Right now I dont even have my rear drivers side hooked up because of static coming thru for some reason and dont have time to work on it. And it sounds the same up front, though people in the back mentioned it this weekend.

I agree, most would be satisfied with just a sub/amp in addition to the Boston system. The factory amplifier has built-in DSP which is great in my opinion. I just wish I knew the the exact crossover points, any time alignment, level matching, etc.

A proper stereo won't use rears. Stereo (music) aka 2.1 consists of a left point source, a right point source, and a sub bass driver(s). Have you ever been to a concert that had loud speakers behind you? Music is recorded in 2.1 not any surround coding like 5.1 or 7.1. A car is a horrible platform for any sort of stereo - it's nothing like a room. Rears help out for the rear passengers, but really don't do anything for the front passengers. Have you ever just played the rears only (no sub or fronts)? Even at full tilt they don't appear to be loud or impactful to the front passengers... because they aren't. I usually fade out the rears unless I have passengers back there... unfortunately I lost the ability to fade when I connected my new amp, lol.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Matt, you hit it right on the head, my rears are only for my passengers in the back. I have actually sat in the back seats right in the middle with it cranked, and dam it sounds great. I faded out the rears while back there and it was def noticeable. I know I know, the real stereo guys say rears arent needed, but for real life driving in an SUV its nice to know my passengers are enjoying the music back there too.

And that's the thing. After all it is still a car. It's not some super high quality sound room.

Actually the only time it seems I have passengers back there are on the weekends when I volunteer to drive because I have an SUV to fit everyone and my stereo is decent, so on the way to Boston I like to crank it and set the mood for the night. Nothing beats having a good system cranked loud with friends in the car on the way to a club. Off stereo topic, but since ive done all these mods to the exterior I have had the guys parking cars at clubs tell me to pull it right in front 3 times so far. BUT, last time I went out I asked for a spot in front and the guy told me to basically get lost, I think it had the F430 already parked there. haha...
