    try the kicker comps or comp vr's if you wanna spend the extra dough. they are a very versatile sub, and you can put them in any box, even freeair. ive got 2 comp 10's and i love them. the only difference between the vr and the normal comp, is the vr has more power handling, therefore it is louder.
    good luck

    well this is a difficult question to ask. how about giving us a few specs to help with a good recommendation. such as how much money to spend on each sub?? how much room you have for the box?? last but not least what kind of amp you plan on using to power them??

No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    Look into the RE SE 12. The direct price for it is 159. All of their subs were built with SQ in mind but also have very high output. I think you would get more for you money with this sub as opposed to kicker comps or type r's.
