Guys it's been over year i bought mono amp(JBL GTO 301.1) but still it's laying around as i am not getting proper subwoofer, my requirment is 10" DVC sub, tired of premium prices in India so decided to better import it, started searching around and came to know many brands which i dont know so need some inputs about these subs like hows the quality and their performance.Looking for good and tight bass and VFM sub, dont want premium priced ones max i acn spend is 10K.
1)Acoustic Audio
2)Audiobahn
3)Boston Acoustics
4)Cerwin Vega
5)Lanzar
6)Legacy
7)MA Audio
8)MB Quart
9)MTX
10)Pyle
11)RE Audio
12)Soundstream
13)Rockford Fosgate
14)Power Acoustik
15)Image Dynamics
I know its a big list to buy just one 10" sub but still....
Front doors are having GTO 607 which i am planning to put it at rear doors and removing the GTO 907 from boots wooden plaunk and putting Illusion 6.1 Electras at front door, all components are going to powered by GTO 75.4.

His budget is 10k and that's impossible to get one new idq with B&W in india at 10k.

Ajay go with IDv3 sub will cost you lill more then 10k but is a good buy at that price or you can even go with the CTX series sub but they are SVC sub.

From what i read sometime back, RE Audio also makes good SQ subs.
Why only a 10" DVC?
Why not a 12" or a SVC?

Whatever sub you choose.
Do See to it that your amp is 300wrms @ 2Ω and 200wrms @ 4Ω

Firstly see whether you want to play it at 2 ohm / 4 ohm.

If at 2 ohm, then a 4Ω DVC or a 2Ω SVC ( Don't know whether there are any)
If at 4 ohm, then a 2Ω DVC or a 4Ω SVC

Want to play at 2 ohms so a DVC with 4 ohms each voice coils will do.
10" as dont want big box in boot, small sealed box will be great as i have a hatchback(Swift).

Of that list the ID sub is most reputed but still my question is have you heard any/all of these subs? If you buy something based on here say you might not get what you want.

I Suppose you have already bought the sub.
I would have suggested you to look at the Boston Acoustics G2, G5 subs. They require just .5 cu.ft volume along with the sub displacement, with very good build quality, goes low and loud.
