Blew my sub, need a new one

My Audiobahn AW1006T finally blew, so now I need a new sub. I have a box with .56 cu ft of space and stuffed with polyfill. I've narrowed down my search to two subs. I would like to know which would be the best option for my given space requirements. The car is a Fiesta ST. SQ over SPL.

Contestant #1: Dayton Reference HO

or

Contestant #2: Sundown SA-10

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both nice choices, with the SQ edge likely going to the Dayton.

Be sure to check out SSA Audio and Incriminator Audio- you didn't state a firm budget or mention the amplifier you'll be using, but both of those brands make a variety of subs in different price and power handling classes.

I'd like to stay around $250-300 at the most.

I'll do some research on the other two. Thanks for the heads up.

That will be enough for a number of good subs.

Yeah. I just need a sub with great power handling that works well in such a small enclosure. I'm liking the subs you recommended. Especially the Incriminatory Audio Lethal Injection Series.

The Sundown SA-10 is v.3 in D4 coil (the one you want) and power handling is conservatively rated @ 750wrms.

I'd love to go with another sub from Massive. I had a Massive HIPPO 84 in my old car and it performed amazingly. But those require much more air than I can give it.

I'm loving the options you guys are throwing out. I didn't realize I had more options to fit my requirements than Dayton and Sundown.

Yeah, that .56ft3 sealed is just too small for 80% of the 10's out there.

The Fi SSD and IDQ might be about it, out of the list.

I should have mentioned that the .56 cu ft was after the displacement of the Aw1006t. So it's closer to .77 cu ft unloaded.

And having said that. I read somewhere that the SA-10 has a Qtc of .707 in a .55 cu ft enclosure. Does that make sense? Or did I come across BS?

Any sub you use is going to be close to .56cuft net. The SA-10 is probably close to .7 qtc in .55cuft. If I were to run one sealed, I'd be shooting for ~.5cuft, but I'd also be shooting for ~500wrms not ~1000wrms.

Isn't a qtc of .7 considered "ideal"?

And also I wouldn't run it at full tilt 1000wrms, I didn't run the AW1006T full tilt, it over powered the speakers too much. There is absolutely no need for so much power in such a small hatchback. I just love the headroom.
