    Down to four subwoofers...help me pick

    After doing a lot of thinking and searching I have finally come down to four subwoofers. My first setup was two 15" Kicker L7s. It was loud and did me good, loved it. However its a common setup around here, considering I was one out of four people in just my school that had two 15" L7s. I also want some thing louder. I had a very good experience with Kicker.

    It came down between Kicker and RE Audio (both very good brands, imo). I wanted to originally run two 18" MTs and I was going to. Problem is that I called RE Audio today and they told me that they are on back order of MTs to try again in 6-8 weeks!! I was like I asked him how much for four SXs and he told me $320, shipped (each).

    This is what im looking for, maybe it helps you decide which sub to pick. I will have two boxes for which ever sub I get, since everybody tells me not to do a port plug. One box will be for daily driving, another one strictly for SPL. I want a pair of subs that can be used for daily driving but also be great in SPL.

    If I get the two 12" Solo Xs or four 18" SX, they will be ran off two Orion 2500ds.
    The 18" Solo X, two orions also. If I get two 18" MTs, im still undecided on what amp.

    Easiest for me to afford will be the two 12" Solo Xs. I don't mind waiting for more money and getting some thing better though (if thats what you guys suggest).

    Anyways, enough said. Give me some suggestions.


    *EDIT* Don't vote on the four 18" SXs, I don't have enough space for them, therefor I decided to not get them

    I would never get a jackhammer even if I could afford it.

    What kind of vehicle do you have?

    Do you have room for the ~30 cube box for four 18's?

    I like it too because of more cone area but I know if I wire the MTs with a 4000rms amp and use only like 3,000rms for dd (4,000rms for comps) it will get much louder than the SX. However, the money I would need to spend on electrical and the amps will be another $1,500
