The US MSRP is $220, approx Rs. 10000/-. I don't have a clue what the official MRP here is, but I remember a friend buying these from a grey dealer for about 10k.

I don't think they'd really growl in super small boxes. Also I remember you mentioning that you listen to some Punjabi and RnB, I'm sure you like the synthesized lows of that kind of music giving you a new hairdo with every note! Get a bigger sealed box, that way you should hit a lower F3, better still get a ported enclosure but be careful with the power you give the subs.

From the specs I think a 2 cu.ft. sealed enclosure per sub should be good. You should check with others also about their experience with the performance of the sub if someone here has owned and used it for a long time. I frankly never have, I've used the 12" Dual 4-ohm guy and it was quite loud playing through a 1.2 cu.ft enclosure and washed down most types of music quite well.

BT,

Do I need to have an enclosure for the twin 12" subs in a Lancer? or is there any other way to get good tight bass. Iam planning to set the subs something like the one shown on the link below.

Charles, owns "metal effect" in Chennai. You can check his work on the following link installations done by him in Chennai.

Not fake, very old model. Now discontinued. I think it's GT-2 subs.

simple answer. box is better; a IB install will give you more boom. dont confuse boom with bass though.

Navin,

Iam not looking at a BIG boom which shadows the rich music. I need a balanced tight LF feedback which syncs well the music.

Navin, how do you think a setup like this would sound? Please check the link below.

Navin you can say that till the time you don't come across a properly executed IB install with nice subs. You will forget everything.

I don't need to tell you how boxless home speakers sound, Do I. Now imagine boxless subs

i said i have heard a few good IB installs. unfortunaltly most IB installs produce more BOOM than tight bass. I heard some great IBs one in a Camaro htat used a JBL 18" (in the 80s) that rocked. It is just that most people make a hash out of IBs.

Harmon, Charles does some good installs. I think he mostly uses Bostons and Pioneer. Maybe a sprinkling of a few other brands. He does some good fiber-glass customization and I have noticed that he has a fetish for setups where there is just a front speaker set and a couple of subs with no rear-fill.

Do get an enclosure for the subs. For most cases, they'll do much better than a free-air situation. That said, it doesn't imply that just 'boxing' your subs ensures that you have no boom. Boominess can result even if you use a bad sub driver, or your box Qt exceeds 1 etc. So, in a nutshell, there are a lot of other aspects that you need to look at.

Some of the enclosures in concern, especially the one in your 1st link is not very ideal because the subs in the car are mounted with their radiating surface i.e. the cone firing straight into the back of the seat. If I were Charles, I'd mount the subs on the Plexiglass so that the bass is radiated unobstructedly into the trunk rather than into the back of the seats...but I'm not Charles
