Recently purchased an 06 RTL. First things first, stock system has to go. Upgraded the head unit to a Kenwood X693. From my previous car, I have a RF Punch 600a5 (yes, old school!) that supposedly will hold 200 W rms to the sub channel at a 2 ohm load. Unfortunately my JL 10W3D4 sub won't fit behind the rear seat, so I'm looking at shallow mount subs. In searching ROC.com, I see a lot of people are buying the Elemental Designs SQ10 and, by and large, are very happy with the performance. Now, I know that a higher price doesn't necessarily mean higher quality, but the price of the SQ10 ($110 regularly, now $70 on sale) raises a bit of suspicion when I look at other 10" subs and the prices are $130 and up. Granted, those prices are from Crutchfield (convenient search) and they're a little inflated, but still, the ED SQ10 would land $15 cheaper than their least expensive shallow mount sub from their outlet. Sooooo, what's y'alls take on the SQ10? Is there a catch? How's the ED going to stack up when compared to the JL that I have? Does anybody have any suggestions for other subs that will outperform the SQ10 if I’m willing to spend a bit more (less than $200), or is the SQ10 the shiz in that price range? Thanks!
The biggest thing in car audio is your budget,how much are you willing to spend. Their are many alternatives to the Elemental Design subs. I personally like kickers and Memphis Audio which are a bit more expensive but you get what you pay for.

The Memphis sound the best and hits the hardest out of the two but the Kicker is no slouch either. I haven't gotten ahold of the JL Audio shallow mounts yet I can't say anything about them.
