obviously, i'm a fan of the DA M6. i also like the ID v3s, DA CM3, treo TSX, and kicker L7.
What are the depths of these subs? Would they fit in a reg cab? Also, what do you guys think about the Phoenix Gold Titanium 10"? I found them for only $70 each.

you should talk to Slvrpismochevy96. he just bought the pioneer premier 12s that are only 4" deep. i think you could prob fit that behind your seat and not loose ANY legroom. i dunno how they sound though, so you will probably need to ask around.
He was telling me that he heard them in a truck and they sound really good. I think at the most he's going to loose one notch if even that. he should probably have them in sometime next week

I'd go with the JL Audio 10W0. Thats what i'm running in my reg cab. I built a custom box to where it doesn't even affect the fold-up center console and I didn't lose any legroom, and it hits as hard or harder than all the other subs i've had (Rockford Fosgate 10 and 12 HE, 12 HX2, and 10 HE2). It's also a lot cheaper and doesn't require as much power to push it, so you don't have to go buy an expensive amp.

I would have to second the Diamond Audio M6 sub. They are awesome and have so much better build quality than the Kicker subs and have MUCH better SQ than the Kickers. GO DA MAN,
Let me know if ya need some I got em!!

All this talk of 10" and 12" subs... Is that kind of displacement really necessary with the small air space of a regular cab? I have a hard time believing that a single 12" sub in a regular cab produces natural sound... By natural, I mean how the artist envisioned their music sounding - well, unless it's some rapper or something...

I can't stand rap music... Do not understand overpowering bass... I just like nice solid and crisp sound.

All that said, here is the box I am building for my regular cab. It will hold four downward firing JL Audio 6w0s...

I've heard some 8's that sounded like 12's .. you don't have to have a big sub to have big sounds, I've also heard four 6x9s that would make almost anyone smile, they rocked pretty hard :rocking:
