    Which “little” subwoofer would you be speaking of?

    edit: DOH! (with my best immitation of Homers voice)

    If you can run two paralelled – use any regular aotomotive amp..

    The one listed in the title AE Speaker SL-10.

    Or, you could get two of the woofers and wire in parallel to get a 4 ohm load, into which most amps will bridge nicely.

    Any automotive amplifier will do nicely with a 8 ohms subwoofer.

    Just remember that your 500W @ 4 ohms is now a 250W @ 8 ohms for example.

    Two in parallel will bring you back at 500W @ 4 ohms.

    This the amp I got :

    I have not tried it out yet… Do think it would work out?

    It will easily over excurt the SL’s.

    Thanks for the feedback, but what does “excurt” mean? Is that some kind of audio lingo?

    and just for fun, here is my set up.

    I am going to have phun finding space for my amp… but I will find a way!

    Household carpeting sucks something fierce for carpeting sub enclosures.
    Crutchfield sells 54″ x 3 yards rolls of carpeting. Click here to see it.
    Also, why did you decide to put the terminal posts on the bottom of the enclosure, as opposed to the rear?

    I’m sad to see that this woofer is going away. That poly dome and M-roll surround is just so good-looking! I want two for my 1998 Ford Windstar! (Actually, it’s about to be mine – once my parents get a new car)

    It will be available as a special order item likely – it’s not necessarilly “going away” we just won’t be stocking them and are blowing out the current inventory.

    I am confused about the viability of this driver for use is automobiles. I am a NOOB – Car amps are rated at 4 ohms so utilizing the 10 inch driver requires a more expensive amp because the usable power will be half is rating? How much (minimum!) power is required to support 75 watt front sound stage (6.5 in. components)?

    simon5 on #2541

    Depends on the efficiency of your midbass drivers.

    BTW, just buy two of those drivers, and the problem is solved. Two 8 ohms drivers in parallel make a nice 4 ohms load.

    Well Guys, I put it all together and it freaken hits hard and clean, that sub is way way good! It gets kind of warm but it doesnt distort and it just sounds freaking awesome. We hooked up my friends 2 15″ Rockford Fausgate @ 4 ohms in my truck, and I swear that 10″ Sounded better.

    BTW: Here is the deck I bought
    6800MP Pioneer

    Not to many options to configure on the deck, but enough to do the trick!
