Please list any and every 12" sub you know that meets the following criteria:

Under $200 (this is flexible)

Under 6" mounting depth (not flexible)

Can handle 500-600 watts or more


I'm aware of the Dayton HO, Polk MM (a little light on the power handling), and SI BM MKiii. Anything else out there?

Maybe you should be looking into a 10" sub. I was havign a hard time finding a 10" that was under 6" that would take some power...


Just a thought

BTW where in LA are you, I grew up in Lake Charles

The website says 300 rms.


Max em out?! I would! :p

I'm looking for some subs that can handle the 1500 watts I have on tap. That's why I keep coming back to the Daytons.

What about the SA-10? I saw where SSA is having a Black Friday sale. Maybe they'll be part of that.

for the 10" you said you wanted 12". the 12" is 500/1000. they will certainly not do 1500 watts, lol. I doubt you will find any shallow mount sub that will handle 1500 watts for real. they just dont have the xmax to pull that off.

Well a Dayton has relatively low Xmax an still handles lots of power.

so they say :)

unless they have a wicked stiff suspension, in a sealed box, you will run out of xmax well before you run out of coil thermal power handling.

if you are gonna run a ported box, you prolly wont use shallow mount subs since a ported box requires more space in the first place. but xmax is less important with a ported box. (to some degree)

Why not reach a little more in terms of price and go for the alpine swr-t12?
