    Honestly, you could get a local car stereo shop too build a custom enclosure for a 12" subwoofer. That, and the sub should cost less then the $499.99 for the one in the link. Okay, the one in the link includes a built in amp. I still think I'd go with a custom built enclosure, a 12 or even a pair of 12's if there is enough air space for a pair. and a class D mono block amp. Now you can build the enclosure yourself and save even more money. Do your research on some subwoofers. Some preform very well in smaller enclosures (require less air space).

    Yeah, five hundred bucks is pretty steep for a 10 with a 250 watt amp if you ask me.

    Not to mention... its a single 10 with TWO passive radiators. That just screams quality right there. :rolleyes: God only knows what that thing must be tuned to.

    That's a gimmicky enclosure. They tout it for its size, yet its over 30" wide and only houses a single 10" driver. A vented enclosure would have accomplished the same thing with much less surface area, but it wouldn't have fooled unsuspecting observers into thinking there's really 3 speakers there.

    Id pass if I were you.

    Ebay has them for much less.. I have one in my 95 regular cab. It works quite well. I know its not the best that could be had, but for the ebay price I paid, its been great!

    could anyone explain what the two passive radiators are for? i believe it would allow ventilation?

    As the speaker cone moves back and forth, it builds up pressure within the enclosure. A passive radiator is basically a speaker without the motor (frame/cone/suspension). As the powered speaker's cone moves and builds the pressure inside the box, it forces the passive cone(s) to move, thus adding output. The diameter of the passive radiator and the weight of it determines its tuning characteristics. You tune them by size and weight much like you would tune a ported enclosure by varying the port size.
