    Trying to decide on budget entry-level subs

    I have around $200 to spend. I like spl over sq, but would prefer a mixture of both. How are these and have any of you listened to these in person? I've heard one Kicker 12" L5, but don't no how that compares to these:

    2 15" Orion P15's
    http://www.cardomain.com/item/ORI27226

    2 10" Polk Momo's
    http://www.cardomain.com/item/POLMM1042PAK

    2 10" Kicker Solo-Baric L5's
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jxKidI3...0&I=2065S10L54

    2 10" Alpine Type-E's
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jxKidI3...0&I=500SWE1242

    Which of these is the best bang for the buck? The size of the box has to fit in a 1999 Nissan Maxima.
    I really like the look of the momo's and the size of the orions. The orions and momo's seem to handle the most power, but I no solo-narics can bump! The alpines I jsut hrough into the mix b/c they were so cheap for two and I like my friends two type-s's, but that is in a small single cab chevy s-10.

    Re: Trying to decide on budget entry-level subs

    if you look closely they momos and l5's are both being sold in pairs. Keeping that in mind, how big will a box for two 10" l5's have to be ported?

    btw, how do the polk momo's compare? I really like the 3 year warranty

    Some 187 10's or 12's might work.
