For those of you looking to swap the sub out ( keep the stealthbox ) for something better. The internal volume is .625 cu/ft. That gives you allot options if you're interested in upgrading the subwoofer. Here is a few to list

Here is a decent list of inexpensive subs that will outperform the JL -
TC Sounds Epic 10
Dayton Audio Ultimax
Dayton Audio RSS line, both the HF and HO series
HiVi SP10
Peerless XXLS 10
ScanSpeak Discovery 10
SEAS L26ROY 10

Those all fall within the sub specs for the box size. You may have to experiment with acoustic fill or maybe take up some space with some MDF. Either way, it gives you guys options if you get tired of the JL sub. I wouldn't be afraid to throw any of them in that stealthbox. That HiVi SP10 would rock your world in terms of output. I think the CDT Audio QES would perform well.

Just thought I would throw some options out there for you guys....in case you get tired of the JL sub and looking for something else. All those listed are proven winners. People have ran them in al kind of box size depending on what you're looking for.

I think you can fit a W6 in there, which is a very good SQ sub...the only one I've considered from JL as a great all around sub. Not familiar with the new Version 3, but Version 2 is an awesome sub!! I believe the W6v2 is designed for the .625 space.

What about the Image Dynamics IDQ sub? I hear that is supposed to be a very good sound quality sub. Would that work well in this box?

Greetings,

Between partsexpress.com & madisound.com, you can find these subs.

An excellent replacement to look at is the TC Sounds Epic 10. This speaker gives you SPL punch in a SQ style. You might have to tune it a little with some fiber in the box or in theory, you can put a smaller vent hole.

TC Sounds Epic 10" DVC Subwoofer 293-656

Between ScanSpeak and SEAS, you will get another great SQ woofer.

Also, old reliable Eminence (pro world comes to auto world) will give any speaker a run for their money. For example in a 10" fit:

Eminence Eminator 2510 10" High Power Car Subwoofer 4 Ohm 290-704

The JL Audio Stealthbox was design to give you Sound Quality performance with a taste of SPL in their's. Again, bass is a matter of personal taste.



Best for now.:)

TC Sounds use to build subs for some of the big names out there...not sure if they still do. Great overbuilt subs with even better distortion levels compared to others. Its a amazing seeing people spending on a name...when there is so much better that is less expensive. I guess that's why some are DIY raw driver people and some are not.

Do you think that all replacement subs require an aftermarket amplifier, or is there a 2ohm DVC replacement that could tighten the bass and still be driven by what we are assuming (ass-u-me) is about 200W from the factory amp?

I'm really trying hard to just do replacements, and so far with the doors and dash I'm really happy with the results. I would like a bass hit that sounds more like a 'thud' rather that a 'thummm' that I seem to hear from the factory sub, if you know what I mean. Nothing mirror rattling, just tighter hits

Sealing and stiffening the enclosure will help. The CDT is more pronounced then the factory. ..I can testify that. Not mind blowing...but it digs deeper. I played Sorrow from the Pink Floyd "The Pulse", it digs allot deeper then before. I can actually feel it vs. hearing it.

Greetings,

I believe they still due for the SPL (mega bass) folks. They might to even license their technology as well. The 8" is a great SQ sub.
