JL just came out with a new marine sub that is designed for a small sealed enclosure (0.5 cu.ft). Which makes it easier to fit 4 under the back seat. The key to making them boom is to fire them downward.

Finally got around to installing my 10" Alpine Marine Subs and putting some power to them. I'm putting about 250 rms watts of power to them through a PDX amp. They sound very good. I don't have a direct comparison with JL's, but I'm pretty happy with the Alpines at half the price of the JL's.

Yep,
Got 2 12" JL subs in the base of the back seat, and they will THUMP the boat!

Has anyone ever tried the Bazooka Marine Tubes? I just picked up one of their 10" subs on Ubid.com for about $150.00. Figured I can slide it under the back seat- or are they even worth messing with..

Back when I was in the audio industry we put 12 of the 10" bazooka tubes in a bow rider and it rocked. It's a good sub and easy to hide and sounds pretty good for what it is.

My boat came with two Bazooka 10"s. They sound decent, but I wouldn't rave about them. I'm a JL fan.

Dumb question on this topic - are the JL M650 components? As in the mid and high are seperated?

Also, what do we think would sound better, two of the Alpine 10's with the M4.100 or one JL 10 with the M1700? Seems to be about the same price.

No, they are coaxials.

I'm going to put 2 10" subs under the bench seat of my boat and was looking at the JL Audio 10" marine free airs. They are pretty pricey. How do they compare to other free air subs? I have 2 JL 10s in my truck and they sound great. Thanks
