All I can tell you is how well the Tang-Band I HAVE works.
Those who want to buy something else and experiment are free to do so.

I used the Tang-Band on the recommendation of Bigfieroman who did the initial research.

Out of curiosity I contacted Parts Express.

Basics of the conversation went at such. Tang Band Neodymium sub is the best there is for our application. The Ferrite version that I linked to has very similar specs yet has a large magnet which would occupy a large percentage of the air volume in our application thus making it suffer in performance compared to the Neodymium version. The large Xmax and frequency response is what makes the Tang Band good for our application.

I'll be ordering a Neodymium. Someone else will have to experiment.

Thank you. That should answer pokeyfiero's question too.

Not my car - found this video on YouTube - recorded with a cell phone I think.
Unfortunately, a YouTube video doesn't give you the "in the car" sound and feel.

Has any one ever had audio problems with this mod?
I did mine a year ago and it's never sounded right. It sounds great when I'm listening to something like dance music where there are nice clean bass hits but if I listen to rock and roll where there are sustained low tones like a long note on a bass guitar it sounds really distorted. I've tried taking the speaker out of the housing and playing music that I know causes it to see if the speaker is blown but it goes away when I do that, press it back in to the opening and it comes right back.
I'm thinking about uninstalling it and getting an RD speaker or something.

I've done this in 2 Fieros and love it in each one. I was have some cut out problems in one at high volume that turned out to me a short in the wiring inside the enclosure. No problems since fixing that. I agree the neodymium are the way to go
