    Which to buy ? Help please

    Hi, I've found these three subs and Im not sure which to buy. I would appreciate it if I could get some input from you guys. Thanks.

    Choice 1 *off of ebay) Alpine Type R 15" SWR-1541D - 500rms - inc box $300 CND
    no taxes.

    Choice 2 *from futureshop) MTX 8000 15" - 500rms - no box $300 for first $150 for second. (if you buy one your second one is half priced.) So that is $450 for two.
    +taxes.

    Choice 3 *from futureshop) MTX 6000 10" - 250rms - no box $180 for first $90 for second. So for two it is $270.
    +taxes.

    The subs will be going into an 88 Chrysler NewYorker. I am getting an MTX 2300x amp to power the sub(s). Now the thing is, I dont want to spend a **** load of cash because I need to save up for college and a new car. So Im not sure if it is worth it is buy TWO 10" 250rms or ONE 15" 500rms for around the same price. Which would be louder/better quality ?
    (as you can tell I dont know very much about car audio)

    Im kind of leaning away from the one on ebay because it does not have any kind of a warrenty that I know of. Maybe some manufacturers warrenty because it is only 2 months old.
    But with the ones from futureshop you can buy a 2 year warrenty and they will replace them anytime you blow them.

    So help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, later.

    the alpines can get loud too...probably not as loud as the mtx, but theyll sound a helluva lot better regardless.
