    Which 12" Sub to choose...HC, SE, W7, HCCA, IDMAX, Power HX2, ?!?

    I want to choose a good single or two 12" sub, i guess 50/50 mix, i didn't really hear a SQ setup, gonna install in a car, trunk. Save space, i dont want to build a huge box to make it perform and take all my space in my trunk. I was considering 1 15", but i know i would have to build a big box. just a small-medium box that it will do it good. I already got an amp, Visonik X900XD amp, 4-channel amp Punch300x, i want some extra money to buy comps in the front and rear speakers, wires...

    Here are my choices, i guess my budget is around 500 to get a sub w/ship *expensive shipping to hawaii is big bucks!!!*, If i could go less, that would be perfect. Soon as i sell my other subs, to get the money to buy a sub.....I got 2 15" L5 in a 4.8cf per chamber, ported each. Only 3 days used, dont want to build another box for it and it willl take my whole space in my trunk to make it perform well....Hopefully you understand where i'm coming from....

    Crystal CMPx2 12"
    SE 12"
    HC D2 12"
    10" or two (dunno yet) W6v2
    JLw6v2 12"
    12" Orion HCCA
    12" IDMAX
    12" Power HX2
    12" Audiobahn Flame Compression
    (look like everyone hates audiobahns, but i'll just throw this one in for now)
    12" JL W7
    12" Kicker L7

    I heard of ED subs, inhumans, DD, shocker, but i can't find their site to look at their models and prices. If you could tell me where to go and their model and price, i'll check it out.

    What would you choose out of these bunches what i got, like top 3 to look at, so i can minus the rest, down to 3 choices to choose from....?!?!?!

    these are the best ones for you to get it done, the ID MAX and the Crystal excell in SQ also, but can still give crushing SPL, but you did not Mention the Eclipse Alumn or Titanium

    Heres the final list....

    Crystal CMPx2 12"
    SE 12" (maybe 2)
    HC D2 12"
    2 10" W6v2
    JLw6v2 12"
    12" Orion HCCA
    12" IDMAX
    12" Power HX2 (maybe 2)
    12" Audiobahn Flame Compression
    12" JL W7
    DD 3500 12"
    Shocker Extremne II series 12" (maybe 2)
    Inhuman 12" (maybe a 15", only 5 bucks more)
    E12Ak (maybe two of these)
    Shocker III Series 12"

    Pick your top 4 out of all of these......Thanks!!

    Just to throw some info in, some topics shown W6v2 sounds better than W7s...
    My goal is get just a single good 12", but 2 12s would be fine the ones shown "maybe 2"...I need some extra bucks to buy some front comps and rear speakers, just decent ones not 300 bucks kinda type....

    I was going to say e12K too, mainly because I want a pair REAL bad, and everything I read about them is excellent. Not to mention they're affordable.

    True...maybe even a Shocker....www.shockeraudio.com...dunno what he is mainly going for, SQ or SPL....IDMAX is good at both - mind you, so is the W7.
