    2 12s but better options available....

    Look into Skar Audio. Excellent drivers & great customer service.

    You are like cancer x.x, sarcasm aside. You didnt specify which AB model. BTLs are ******* nasty, but still you didnt specify BTL n2 or BTL n3...

    Be less vague

    2 12s more cone area and motor force = more potential loud

    Also depends on blahblahblah, XFLs should be louder than a BTL n2, but a BTL n3 would be up there if not beating it if properly powered

    Cone area isn't everything...OP it's hard to say but they are both good subs. I don't see you gaining or losing much by switching to the BTL

    Sundown subs are some great subs as well, and SSA.One Z series 15 in a good ported box would be just BA, or a pair of SA will get down.FI subs, id run a pair of SSD 12s, running a pair of FI subs.Thats me though

    My older BTL 15 triple stack mag was beast as hell. Right around 4 cubs with 3kw and it made miracles happen.

    I prefer a single beast sub setup over more medium level subs....but that's just me.
