Tang Band W69-1042J 6"x9" Subwoofer
What kind of amp should I use to power these, or do I even need one?
Subwoofers are typically powered independently from the rest of a system, these would be no different. Any speaker requires amplification in order to produce sound, even if that amplification is built into the receiver or head unit driving them. For this particular subwoofer, we would recommend an amplifier of 200 watts per channel or so, set at or below 50% gain. An amplifier with more or less output could also be used successfully with the proper gain settings.

what is the recommended sizes for a sealed or ported enclosures for this driver?
what would be the optimum size sealed enclosure?what would the optimum ported enclosure size be? tuning?
auto sealed box about .7 cuft or 1 cuft with port or a slim tri trix type transmission line.. this is sorta an oddball driver.. sound jumps off the six in side sooner than the 9 in side ,, so cross it over low like 100 hz..

What is the cutout size for this driver?
You can download the mfgr specs from the product page. It's a bit fuzzy - but you will get the idea - it's an odd hole. You could go to the mfgr site for a clearer image. BUT wait - drivers like this "usually" come with a template. I used the KEF B139 years ago which was similar.

I have done that they are still whompy
I sealed it to the rear deck..no enclosure they are IB. I have tried that and tested with more powerful amp which helped but I can only describe it as whomping with increased volume. Since I added the new amp it can produce significantly more spl but still "whomps". I cant imagine the driver bottoming out because it receiving the same frequencies as my oem drivers in my cruze. I tried 3 different amps I am now using the one that performed the best. they are currently seeing 75wrms a piece.
problem ; gm and ford developed the 6x9 to extend the 100 hz whomp as bass with the large area of trunk .. the time of the wave jumping into the air is at two places in space and or time the six in side and the nine in length, along with the rear glass reflectance the auto sound was born.. now put an air tight chamber so the back side of the 6x9 woofer doesn't beat with your subs and form a resonant doppler like distortion and x'over the 6x9's at 130 hz and go to a full size sub 8,10 ,12 etc and get more exotic you won't regret it

Would this sub work well in trunk?
I changed out the factory 6X9's in my 2011 Altima. I now have great highs but the lows are lacking (kept the factory head unit). Would this sub work well installed under the package tray with a 3/4" mdf trim ring between the sheet metal and the sub or does it need more clearance. Also, is the trunk area too large for just one of these subs?Thanks.
This will add lows although it probably wont play much below 35 Hz. This is typcial for most music though so it should not be a problem. The 3/4" is enough clearance.
