    Kicker ZX1500.1- Which subs? RE or FI BTL?

    Ok if you had about $600 to spend on 1 sub for a 07 hyundai accent would you go with Re Audio or FI audio and choose a BTL?



    I want to run my amp at 1 ohm.

    I'm thinking either a 15 or an 18 I still need to measure the spair tire well before I decide though because I want to make it a flush mount and stealth the system..
    Used to do lots of SPL not sure what a good SQ sub with some SPL sounds like. I think it's deep bass not sure though..

    any advice?



    Edit:

    Ps Also thought about a Mmats Juggernaut..

    What kind of music do you listen to? What kind of front stage do you have?

    For country you might be able to get by with the BTL, for rap it'll be great, but they **** donkey balls on rock/metal. Espescially at lower volumes.You're front stage will also need to be able to play pretty low, the BTL is a sub you don't want to cross over high.

    Try to find an 05' 15" RE XXX, chances are it'll be loud enough and it'll sound MUCH better than the BTL can dream of.
