Suggestions for two ten inch subs in sealed box

Looking to add some Sq and bass to my trailblazer. There is alot of interesting choices on the market now days so looking for some help. Looking to keep it around 1000 rms on the two subs at 1 ohm. So I need suggestions on one ohm stable amps also. Last mb quarts I had was solid. Trying to keep in under 500.

I don't see anything about the Under Pressure subwoofer that blows my skirt up.
The Sundown SA subwoofer is a very proven and trusted subwoofer for the same-ish price. (It's usually cheaper)

Incrimintor, DC Audio, American Bass, Soundqubed, Sundown, SSA, NVX and Image Dynamics come to mind as brands I would trust. PPI Ice amps are pretty good budget subwoofer amp.

Precision Power ICE2600.1D and 2 10" sundowns is what i'm going to go with then. any suggestions on a sealed box for two 10's?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-inch-Dual...AAMXQVERSvdAK? looks pretty legit and should keep it tight. it is the same style i made when i had a 8" sundown.

wait... the 10" sundown e series you posted are dual 2 ohm vc that are 1 ohm stable correct? i couldn't find that information on sundowns sight, amazon, or woofect.

The enclosure you linked is for a ported enclosure.

If you are buying 2 subs get the dual 4 ohm so you can wire down to 1 ohm.

Not only is it ported, but it's tuned to 42hz. I'd much rather see something tuned closer to 32hz if the OP has decided to go ported.

Exactly. Was waiting for clarification before I went down that road. Port is pretty inefficient aswell.

Ported gets deeper and louder. The price you pay is you generally end up with too much low end, but that works out okay with rap, dance, hip-hop, EDM, etc. Too much low end can muddy up drums and bass guitars. I'm pretty sure the majority of listeners use ported enclosures. Seems like the majority of manufature's enclosures are ported. Beats sells a shytload of headphones too.

Generally if you want sound quality then go sealed. If you want SPL go with a ported enclosure. Now I,m not saying that a ported enclosure cant sound good but you would need to have it designed for the particular subs and tuned properly.

No matter when getting an enclosure do not buy the cheap prefabs. they all suck. Ideally an enclosure will be made from 3/4" mdf or Baltic Birch; HAve sufficient bracing; proper tuning and port area for the subs and power you are running.

i agree i will check what some local shops have, you are right i'm thinking as a bass lover but what i really want is sq for rock and metal. so sealed for sure i will check with some local shops and see what they would charge or i have a old man down the street that is a wood worker if i can find a diagram on sundowns website. i been looking at skar, mb qaurt, and a few other subs. i know sundown puts out a good *** product though so i think those tens will be good and plenty loud. any final thoughts before i order the sundowns?

Avoid Skar. I'd probably skip Sundown for a sealed application unless you need a shallow mount sub, in which case the Sundown SD is a great choice.

The SSA Dcon, Image Dynamics ID and IDQ and Incriminator I series are good entry level subs for a sealed application. The Dayton Reference HF and Ultimax are worth mentioning as well. The Dayton Reference is a very clean sounding sub.
