Do you mean the JL audio box. Fits in the back and downfires two 10s?

I've seen several of them on here. Find the x-cab thread. With that box though, you are limited to only shallow mounting depth subs like w6s. You could get a way better setup for about half the cost.

yes I mean the JL

What is SQ, SPL, low fill
SQ is short for sound quality--or how accurately the bass notes are reproduced. Some subs are good at just making noise, so they have poor SQ. And there are subs that are known for their clarity--like the JL w7s for example.

SPL is short for sound pressure level (measured in decibels). Basically how loud it gets. Again, there are subs on the market that are known for getting way loud, but lack sound quality. You might put audiobahns and L7s in this category. Totally subjective of course. What I look for in a sub is a mix of both SQ and SPL. A sub that can make some bass and sounds good doing it. A lot of the JL line fits into this category, as well as Alpines and Elemental Designs.

SMNW2003 is basically asking what your expectations are of this setup. Do you just want a little bass, or you looking to compete?
The w6s that come in that box for example are more than likely going to sound pretty good. They'll give you some good lower end. Something that the stock system doesn't have. But you are not going to win any spl competitions with it.

It's always nice to have idea of what you want to do with your system. That way you can plan and purchase your equipment accordingly. That'll save you from buying something and being unhappy because it isn't loud enough or doesn't sound good enough.

IMO, If you just want a couple 10s to give you some bass, then that setup is going to be fine if you wanted to spend the 600 (I could find you something better for a lot less). But if you're looking to win a SPL competition, then that system isn't going to cut it.

how bout some RE subs? they have a decently shallow mount depth, and from everyone who talks about them, get loud as hell, for a very affordable price.
