The MB QUART and Sundown audio ones seem to fit my application perfect. Will the MB's handle 300w rms when spec says 200w rms? And the sundown say 350w end and I will end up starving them and that's worse isn't it? I am liking those MB's

Yes I have the seats raised now. Just lazy and don't want to fan and shim or make adapters tbh. I appreciate your advice as well as eveyone else. Changing box to 10" subs is not an option right now. At worst I would just buy the pioneers I had at first. Just wanted to know if there is something better for the same $ out there. I emailed MB QUART for a recommendation just waiting to hear what they say. I am looking into the other subs that are listed also. I just don't know how to tell by the specs which sub will sound like what and which is better for my application. I just pay attetion to mounting depth and sealed box vol required. Also rms wattage. But I've read that sensitivity is not important but I thought is was especially when you have a lower wattage system Like I do.

The Sundown's have more throw, so will get louder than the MBQs.

Well I found a few subs that will work with my setup. Frist on my list are Boston's G1 series. Then memphis street ref series. Also cadence has one. Hifonics hercules also. They are more $ then what I want to spend but just a bit more. What are your thoughts as to which brand would produce the cleanest best sounding lows?

The G1 seems to require more than the .75cuft you're working with. Even 1cuft is a little small IMHO. The Earthquake is even more space hungry, although you could always go with 10s.

The Polk MMs seem like the best fit, but the are just a tad deep, but those are probably what I'd go with. Actually, I'd see if I couldn't find a way to get ~1cift per sub and go with the Sundown SDs.

Well I removed my box and subs and measured mounting depth and it's 5 3/4" and it's lowest height so I would think 5 1/2" depth would be the max. But I also found spacer rings which would add 3/4" so that would allow me to run at least a 6 1/4" depth which would leave 1/4" I know that's not much room and not optimal but it's what I got. And I researched my box a bit more and it seems to have approx 1cu ft of air space. I could have sworn it was like .7 or something but guess I was wrong. So I would say 1cu ft max and more like .9 cu ft to be safe. I found a set of sony gtr 12s at crunchfield for $40 each. I know people say Sony is garbage but for $40 each can't beat that.

The Sony's blow. I'd go with the Sundown SD or Polk MM. Both sound good and should work in the space you have to work with.

I'd buy a Skar VD-12 before a Sony sub. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-SKAR-AUD...QAAOSwZSFXJSy5

Not much of a Skar fan, but not bad for ~$80.

Well the Sony is out. I know they have a bad rep but I've read they are turning things around and starting to put out decent products. Any case still up in the air. I think I'm being to picky to be honest.
