    The RE is garbage so mark that out. Just build your enclosure to 7 cubes if you need that much space for the other options. The E series is pretty stout and I've always liked the AQ 2.5s.

    im buying a audiopipe 1000 rms amp.... and i got an 06 grand prix with a decent amount of trunk room but the subs cant be on top of the box they gotta be in front because i pull down my back seats to add more air space....

    Re: Help picking best SPL subwoofer?

    personally i think you should slow down and try to become more educated in car audio. ask more questions.
    so the 2- 15s will be facing forward into the cab and the seats will be folded down? are you going to seal off the trunk- make it so the waves dont enter the trunk?

    Could always talk to SPLaudio and have him build you some subs.

    Re: Help picking best SPL subwoofer?

    1. None of those subs are SPL subs
    2. How is this an advanced SPL question? This is just a general sub question of which would work better.
    3. A 1000 rms AP amp and SPL do not go together
    4. Hitting the lows is more enclosure specific, not really sub specific
    5. You may/may not be louder with your windows down on certain frequencies



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None
