recommendation needed

I'm looking for a new sub. Don't want to spend an arm and a leg, but not being cheap either. has to be a 10", with dual voice coils. needs to be on the shallower side as my box isn't very deep. here is the info on my amp.

250 Watts X 2 Channels @ 4 Ohms
350 Watts X 2 Channels @ 2 Ohms
450 Watts X 2 Channels @ 1 Ohm
700 Watts X 1 Channel @ 4 Ohms Bridged
800 Watts X 1 @ 2 Ohms Bridged

also looking for a decent, lower price bluetooth ready head unit.

i want to say it's 5" +/- 1/2" or so

that kenwood is probably a little over what i want to spend, but could be a possibility.

? did you forget something? the kicker cvr would be great, as long as it would fit in my box. here is a shot of the box just to give you an idea.

thanks. this is a temp setup. the box used to be for 2 12s, but downsized to a single 10 when i redid the interior. i have another box sitting, waiting to go in, but i have to get my stepside back on and do the blow thru first. it's a big, slot ported box for 2 10s. basically takes up the front 1/3 of the bed.

i will check out the ones posted. i might get the RF

Yeah Kicker came out with new models of subs last month so it would be nice to have one of those. That box would be perfect for it.

alright, been looking some more tonight. the sub i have now has a 5" mounting depth. it's really close to hitting the back of the box. so 5" is the max i can go.

I like the kicker cvt, but it's only a single vc. i plan to only run one. how would i go about wiring it?

i would go with the mtx 10" shallow mount... it's tiny, pounds hard, but needs a .89 cubic foot box, and it's a few bucks

couldn't find what i think i need.

the sub is a svc 2ohm. i searched some more, and have found nothing showing 2ohm.

if i go with the "bridged" marks on the amp, and go +to+ -to-, that should give me the 800 Watts X 1 @ 2 Ohms Bridged....correct?

no since you are bridging it at the am it will cute the impedance in half and run it a 1 ohm... you would need a 4 ohm svc woofer
