hey guys. i know this sounds crazy but i need to find a lightweight combo for my car. its not an all out drag car, still has wheels and interior, but its a fast every once in a while car and the 9sq ft box and 3 xxx's is waaay too heavy. i know that anything decent isnt going to be exactly lightweight, but i need a sub that doesnt way 75lbs. i want the best i can get without adding too much more weight to the car. no budget limit. im thinking its going to be a single sub setup. help me brainstorm guys. i know people here have dealt with many different subs so im trying to see if there is something you guys know of that performed really well but didnt weigh too much.

i really dont have a limit set. its without a doubt gonna have some bass, i hate driving a car without good music. so even if i add a couple more lbs to the car, its gonna happen. like i said, i dont really have a weight in mind, and i dont want a shitty 2 lb visonik. i want something that is quality shit, just dont want to do the 2 15's or 4 12's kinda thing ya know. im thinking a nice LOUD single 12 or possibly 15. and fiberglass is no problem, im sure it wil be lighter than a mdf enclosure. i just havent had experience with enough different subs to make a decision. i appreciate the help man. and i appreciate help from anybody else

a sealed 10' or a baffle & speaker that way you do not need a whole box, with a memphis amp will be pretty lite and give great response

DD is a rather large company in the usac and db drag scene but can be over priced and are made to create as much presure without regaurd to sound quality
