Small Enclosure Sub?

For my new car I'm limited on space so I'm looking for a decent sub that uses a small enclosure. Right now I'm thinking a JL 10w6v2. It needs roughly 0.7cuft and that is my maximum for allowed space.

Any recommendations for a sub that requires a small box or will the JL be good?

My amp is a 1000.1bd Rockford Fosgate 1000Watts @ 2 OHM. My previous car was running two 12.1 Infinity Kappa's. I'm not sure what to expect from a single 10" sub.

That much power might melt that JL. Be darned careful on the gain setting and the use of the volume dial.

LOL... melting the sub is a concern I have. I just can't justify selling the amplifier and buying a new one. Especially since I know I'd get nothing but chump change for it.

Take a look at the Stereo Integrity BM mkIII(shallow sub), this sub need only 0,5cuft. I'm testing one right now and after a few hours of playtime it now pound as much as my 10" IDMAX (if not a bit more).

Don't worry, you're better with lots of power in reserve, use it intelligently and you won't have any issue. make sure the gain is set to the minimum and don't use any bassbost, loudness...

I was looking at the shallow mount subs before. Pioneer, JL Tw5 (which was too big), and several others.

Never heard of the one mentioned above. I guess it is time for more research!

Mach 5 Audio IXL (SL version)

Cheap, and can take 1000rms.

Only thing is it needs about 1.2 cubic feet sealed

alpine swx 1043 needs only .49 cubic feet net for a sealed application and uses 1000 watts rms, you'll need a box that's atleast 8.75" deep internally. Basically, if you can build a box that's 11x11x12.5 (outside dimensions)with 3/4 mdf you're good to go, as it will give you 0.508 cuft net (after sub displacement internal volume) and you can gain a little virtual volume by adding 1/2 pound of polyfill to achieve a volume of .63 cu ft. Excellent sounding sub, plenty loud, tough, 2ohm final load perfect for your amp...but a little expensive.
