 Need subs for Enclosure - 2001 Chevy Tahoe

o i just ordered the following enclosure for my 2001 Chevy Tahoe: http://caraudiofactory.com/20002006-chevy-tahoe-p-239.html as an Amp i have a 722 rms Rockford Fosgate Amp. I was wondering what Subs i can put in the enclosure... It can only take 10" subs. i was thinking 10" Alpine Type Rs or Kicker CVT104 (Shallow-mount sub). Does anyone know if any other sub would be great? i originally had 2 12" JL W4s in a bandpass box and am hoping for something that hits just as hard. Madooo4u

Wow...that box is going to flex like crazy.  It is only made of 5/8" MDF.  If you haven't bought the box yet, I wouldn't.  If you have bought it already, just look for a 10" sub that has a mounting depth of 4.5" and that will work well in 0.6ft^3 of air space.  You will also need to know what amp you have to determine what impedance of sub you will need (single 4 ohm, dual 4 ohm, etc.).  You are not going to find a lot of subs that will handle a great deal of power with a mounting depth of 4.5".

Well, i have a Rockford Fosgate P6001bd amp which has a born power of 722Rms. The subs that i just picked up (got them for a steel) are 2 10" Alpine Type R. I am def going on a limb at buying the box, but if the enclosure works then it will be very helpful to me because it sux takin the 100+lb box out everytime i go on a family trip. What do you think? The subs will be fine? i know they are under-powered, but i will def upgrade when i have a little more money. Madooo4u

Those are very good subs (even under powered they will still get decently loud).  However, they have a mounting depth of 6.8"...a little more than the depth of the box you are looking at which only has a mounting depth allowance of 4.5".

so what would you recommend in terms of a sub? I have noticed most kickers, (such as 07CVT10-4) are under 4.5" mounting depth. But are kickers good subs? i am comparing them to JLs W4s (currently own 2 12") and Alpine Type Rs as i have personally heard both of them and they thump hard.

I personally prefer the JL's over the Kickers myself (I have never really been a Kicker fan...they just don't sound good to me IMO and I am more into SQ).  You are really going to be limited as to what will fit.  Have you gone to a local custom shop to see what could be built to accomodate another sub?  It might cost more but will be worth it if you can fit a better sub.

well i could raise the rear seats up 2 inches, however, if i were to ever get into an accident, my insurance wouldnt be covered because i had made modifications to the existing seats. So to decrease any headaches, i have to stick to the original 4.5" mount depth subs. I found some cheap Type R 8"s online. Would there be a huge difference between these and the 10"s? Also i prefer JLs as well, but they are too damn expensive for my blood :D Next to JLs i would prefer Alpine Type Rs and that is why i am lookin at the 8s over the 10s.

btw... the 8" Type Rs have a mount depth of 4.5"s and produce 350rms each giving me a total of 700 rms, and my amp is 722rms which is perfect. But will these 8's shake my car and be awsome sounding???

You would probably get better sound by using a better quality smaller sub vs a larger average sub.  You will most likely have to have a box made (either by yourself or a shop) for the 8's.
