none of them ,they all need 3.5 cubic ft each . a dc lvl 2 or 3 takes 3 ^3 per sub and thats one of the subs n the market that will take smaller boxes ported

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....

so you're going to be firing into the cabin?

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.

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

Doesnt always work that way...sone trunks arent louder sealed off..and. 2 12s on decent power is plenty...save youre pennies and get the next step up

U need ur average joe subs if ur running that amp, cause there's no way ur gunna evwn move one aq e or a sundown to full potential . Grab a pair of audio technix new line up or maybe dd1000 series 15s .... or like everone else says keep saving cause u will need bigger amp to push what u really want ...gud luck!

Try the obsidians. They get loud on low power and 6 cubes for 2 15s will work. 160.00 each woofer. Obsidian.com

Well, only a few drivers will actually fit inside that trunk unless you go sealed.

And I can not believe I'm about to say this part.....

Hifonics and Crunch both have amps that are far superior to the AP amps. (except the new korean based AP amps..but those are not cheap)

Sounds like zero testing has been done. Forward firing may not even be the best option, even if your seats fold down. You are much better off getting 2 12s and building a box that will fit into the trunk, unless you plan on building the box in the trunk. AP amps are not a step up from anything really, they are about as bottom of the barrel as it gets. They are cheap and should do 1/2 rated power clean, just like any other POS amp.
