    I have a Sonosub I am using as my HT bass but I am considering making a sealed enclosure for music. I also have a few JL 10W6s sitting around that I need to use or sell so I may make a sub with them. Here is the specs:

    Any opinions if it would work well as a Home sub?

    i used a 10w4 for a year or so. worked, but the box i had it in was a bit off. my 2 tempest IB blows it so far away i cant believe i was satisfied before.
    sorry i strayed a bit. build the right box and the jl will work. just hard to sweep "enough" air with just one 10 in driver. [​IMG]
    now if you rigged up "a few" of them, now that might be fun.

    I'm running 3 8W6's and they're great. Like Rich said though one ten may not move quite enough air.

    I am running 3 10W6s in my car right now and that is why I was curious. I am pretty happy with my sonosub though so it was mainly a thought.
