Single 10" sub in one bag?

I am putting together a new budget sound system for my 18 Roadglide. After reading several posts, I've decided to order 2 new Kappa 62IX 6.5's, a Cerwin Vega B54 4 channel, the BT55 Biketronics line leveler and amp mount. I am thinking for town riding i'd like some more bass. Here are my thoughts. I'm thinking i'd run the front 2 speakers unbridged from the 2 channels and bridge the other two channels to a 10" sub and LP filter the sub and flat the 2 front speakers. Any thoughts on this or corrections? Any suggestions of a sub that won't break the bank like the JL 8.8's? Thinking in the $200 range max for the sub....

A answered in the other thread you posted this in but... I fear you are going to be disappointed with any Sub that you bridge from the B54.

The JL 8.8 is not a sub BTW.

Subs need a sealed enclosure with correct air space which a bag isn’t. You’d be better off running a mid bass speaker rather than a sub unless you plan on doing some fiberglass work and sealing off the top of your bags. These are my bags with a 10” PRV mid in each bag. I will tell you that any 8 or 10” speaker will need a lot of power.

What is the model number of the PRV mid you are using? I've installed several systems in boats and understand the enclosure impact. I've never used a mid before because room has never been a big issue.. Bikes are looking to be more of a challenge for sure...

What amp and midrange speaker would you recommend if i wanted to only use one 10" speaker for example. Thinking just the one to save on the space in one of the bags. I would like to stick with the line leveler to avoid reflashing of the stock head unit, and am also open to the front 6.5's... however the Kappa seem to be highly recommended.

Is this your 10" PRV? PRV Audio 10FR300PR... it seems pretty cheap at $59 if so. Do you ever worry about getting caught in the rain with that one?

10w650a is the model I’m using. The rings are from a guy on Facebook named Tim Nagy. They are bonded and screwed. I also installed speaker grill material coated in never wet in front of the speaker and also used black silicone around the ring in hopes of keeping as much water out as possible.

Ok, here's what i'm thinking. Stinger SPX700x4 in 3 channel mode (350x1 @4ohm and 175 x 2 @2 ohms), BT355 line leveler, 2 Kappa 62iX 6.5's up front, and a SINGLE PRV 10w650a-4 4ohm 10" woofer/mid bass in one bag to save space in the other bag. thoughts?

RoadglideJ, I just mounted two PRV 8" Mid Bass Speakers in My Saddlebags and am very pleased with the sound.
I also can fit all the things I had in My Bags before the install I just gave up a little space.
If it was me, after all the reading on Saddlebag Speakers that I have done, I would not put one 10" or any other solo speaker for that matter, in one bag.
I think that the sound You would hear would be unbalanced.
I am not an Audio Guru Specialist by any stretch of the imagination but hopefully some of them here can chime in.
I just read a lot of information on whatever I want to do to My Glide so that I am well informed before starting.
Best of Luck and keep Us posted on how You make out.
