Lightweight subs

I have 2 Power Acoustic 12's in my car right now. They are really heavy and i mean heavy. But i love the way they hit. Does anyone know if there are any subs that are small and lightweight but still hit as hard as if they were huge. I know a lot depends on the box and everything but just ya'lls opinion which do ya'll think?

I'm sure you can but you need to know how much cubic space your sub needs, whether it is designed for a ported applicaton and you need to figure out how big of a port to use. IMO, going sealed with fiberglass is just easier. I also like that sharper sounding bass from a sealed app vs. the more punchy or boomy sound with ported and bandpass apps.

A single Boston Acoustics spg555 in a sealed 1^ft box. Light weight and small, and would sound EXCELLENT.
