 W1 or CVR??

I have a fosgate P500-2 and debating on going with 2 10" JL W1's or the Kicker CVR's. Cost isn't much of a factor and they'll be going under the seat of my f150. Any opinions? Thanks!

I'm not sure how much depth you have to deal with but I think you can do better. You have 500 watts at 4 ohms. This single sub will sound light years better and louder than the 2 that you posted.

The 12 has a little bit more depth. If you can squeeze it in there go for it. Just one of those subs on the amp you have will shock you in a sealed box.

I don't have much depth and I have a dual 10 sub box so would like to stick with that.

Ok....I can find something else but you're going about this the wrong way. To get the most out of a driver you have to have the driver and then get or build the box that is right for the driver. Every driver needs the correct box volume. So you have a dual 10 box...is it ported or sealed? How many cubic feet is it? You really can take the best sub on the market and put it in the wrong size box and it will sound horrible.

I understand what you're saying but I already had the amp and having a "custom" built box just wasn't worth it to me. I'm really just looking to add some descent bass when I decide to turn the music up which is very seldom. The box is sealed, has .7 cu ft per compartment, and my max depth is 5.25" Thank you for your input.

That depth is gonna make this a little tough. However I found a few. Dayton makes a great sub.

Great reviews on both of those but for the price and my application I'm going to try out those JL WX. Thanks for all your help! :)
