Hoffman's Iron Law:

Small, Low, Efficient. Pick 2.

The 2" drivers are small, but not efficient. To make them go low would require insane amount of power (well beyond physical limits of the suspension). Think around 100-200W. That will literally melt the voice coil.

For auxiliary bass in an Integra, with component 6.5s in the front, nothing less than an 8" should be considered. 10-12 is the sweet spot unless you like dubstep or crazy hiphop, then you need a 15-18" beast.

95 EJ1 Milano RIP/died/sold -> 98 DB7 CSM RIP/totalled -> 97 DB7 CSM Awful. Sold it back. -> 01 DB8 YR525M RIP/totalled -> 06 Civic LX daily -> 1991 CRX HF (YT)

Integra friends are the best friends.

Don't bother with these 2" subwoofers, especially if you plan to put them in your doors.

The lightest way to install a subwoofer would be to:

- Find a quality 8"-10" subwoofer
- Find a quality mono subwoofer amp
- Wire the amp under the seat/dashboard to reduce the amount of power cable needed
- Run speaker wires back to the trunk
- Purchase a plastic molded subwoofer enclosure OR fabricate a fiberglass enclosure
- Install and enjoy

Smaller, single subwoofer
+ small amplifier
+ fiberglass/plastic enclosure
+ minimal power cable
= relatively lightweight

You can also find self-contained units like bass tubes, OEM subs from other cars, and generic self-powered subwoofers (like Infinity Basslink) that would fit the bill.
