Wiring up your SWS' in that tiny enclosure will be more of a midbass than a subwoofer - in it's frequency response.

The JL's generally have a wonderfully warm sound to them.
I'd had 3x sets of VR600 CSI's in my past few cars & can't fault JL's sound reproduction.
Let us know if they fit!

If so, I'd certainly be using a sub sonic filter around 30+Hz - if the Solid 2 has one.
