They go hard a mate -I run four of em...if amp'd well they can pull very nice figures for a sub that wont cost you n arm and a leg.

As for enclosure - the standard box can vary but most still do a pretty decent job...if for now your not planning on some custom install to show off or going for serious car audio competition it will go awesome.

Just depends on the setup ... ive seen two cars with a single Type S 12" woofer pull just on and the other just over 150db

I rate the pre-fab alpine enclosure very highly. My one is ported and the two S type 12's run very nicely off the MRD-M1005.

In fact they really hammer.

The only problem with the enclosure is that it doesn't fit well on the back boot shelf of the BA. I have lost effectively two thirds of my boot space.

I think I am going to build a proper boot install at some stage, but where do I find the time?
