    Icon32 Help me choose a sub please!!!

    Hey guys...

    I posted a question before and have slightly modified what I am doing, so want to get your advice once again...

    I am replacing a sub, and am looking for a 12 that will give me a good overall SQ/SPL mixture - you know, kind of one of those "ultimate subs"... Anyway, it is going to go into a 1.25cf sealed enclosure, and be powered by an amp that supplies 600w into 2-ohms or 1000w into 1-ohm... (it is a Sony XM-1600GSD -- don't worry, it is the next thing I am going to upgrade - probably to a 1200.1)

    Anyway - here are the possibilities I have come up with thus far --

    One Brahma 12" (dual 2-ohm dvc - approx 1000w)
    One Audiomobile MASS or EVO-R (both are dual 4-ohm dvc, so they would get about 600w)
    Elemantal Designs e12a (dual 2-ohm dvc - approx 1000w)

    Which would you choose and/or had personal experience with in similar set-ups?

    What is the availability of the Brahma & e12a? (I e-mailed Adire last night, but today is a holiday and I may not hear back right away...)

    Thanks a lot for the help -- I never know I would pull out so much hair choosing a sub!

    By saying you want a mix of SQ/SPL("ultimate sub") I think you just walked yourself right into the Brahma You wouldnt be dissapointed with that sub, I'll tell you that.
