The Pioneer one work very well as do Clarion's but they only come in 10" Out of the two mentioned the Pioneers would get vote.

The Pioneer and the Earthquake shallow mount subs have proven to be great speakers. Provided you have the right box for any sub, you will get good output.

if you dont care about looks why not go for the new kicker shallow sub.
some guy did a review on them compared to the clarion, and pioneer iirc,
and it was said the kicker pretty much dominated. I have no experiance with any of them, but i thought i'd put that out there since no one mentioned the kicker shallow.

eD's SQ10 is a great sub, for I believe 70 US shipped from it's 3" deep, 9 mm each way excursion, and great sound... also runs 300 RMS at either single 2 or single 4 ohms.

also works in as little as 0.3 cubes sealed

I have the Kicker CVT 12" shallow subs in the board and I am very impressed. I've listened to just about all the "flat" subs on the market now and hands down the Kicker is the loudest. The 10" is crisp and loud while the 12's are a little sloppy but really boomy.


400wrms available in 2 or 4ohm SVC
