For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. Box size will be 11 inches x 11 inches x 11 inches. Hope this helps
I wouldn't suggest putting any subwoofers on your rear deck. put them in the trunk. and if you choose to put them in the trunk you can use either 10's or 12's your preference but for the airspace in that car I'd go for 10's in a to spec and properly tuned ported enclosure. Building them yourself always sounds better if you know what you're doing.
Polyfill is only used when the enclosure is smaller than recommended. Th polyfill makes the woofer think the internal airspace is more than actual. Your always best to build the box to the recommended woofer specifications of the manufacturer.
the speakers most not go lower than 2ohms.when the amp. is bridge you are connectin 2 channels.your speakers are most important,the impendence of it,in ohms e.g 4ohms or 8ohms.note make shore the amp.can go down to 2ohms when bridge,or connect the speakers in series.if you not shore.
There are several factors to what sounds good in a subwoofer. Your head unit, amp, enclosure size and enclosure type as well as where its placed. I tend to think that fosgates are superior to a lot of speakers but orion and JL are making some pretty impressive speakers too. Check the speakers need for airspace and make sure you can accomodate it. If you can, and the resonant frequency is more to your liking then move up to fosgates. Personally, I think the difference MIGHT be minimal assuming you are using the same inclosure, amp and head unit. Good Luck!
There is no "best" its a matter of opinion, and fabrication. I have installed $75 subs in the properly fabricated and tuned enclosure that sound like $300 sub in a pre-fabbed enclosure. For volume, you will need a vented enclosure. For sound quality, a small sealed. Both have pros and cons. SoloX 10 is 2500W rms 5000W peak.
Kicker is plastic. Solobaric may be your best choice in such a small space, however soundsplinter makes an 8" RLi sub that will kick a$$ in the proper enclosure.
When looking to buy, compare x-max : as this is the linear distance the cone will move. More movement = more air displacement = more volume.
