    Looking for a good 12"

    There's so much going around right now it's hard to pick and choose since i'm really not a guru when it comes to audio. But anyways I have a 97 Prelude and I would like to replace my Alpine Type R's with a single 12" (maybe even 15) that is good in small enclosures (prolly ~2cuft or so in my trunk i'm wanting to use) and can get hella loud. (SQ is a bonus). Price doesn't matter.

    Edit: Forgot to add it's going in a sealed box and if its a ****** sub will I need more than 1 cap.

    Thanks for the link to the search! If I didn't want your opinion I wouldn't of asked for it And yes i'll need the amp to push the sub. I'm looking towards a 1200+ watt sub (xxx and brahma are lookin nice) and of course a grand daddy amp to push them.

    what is your price limit man people around here can definetly help ya out. the XXX isn't really a small box woofer unless your going sealed then it is awesome! the brahma is a fantastic woofer and also look at the Elemental Designs A sereis 12" as said before. 2cuft ported to 28-32hz with 1200watts to it and oh man hold on to your seat!

    lol not going to extreme's huh?? 2 grand for a sub and amp combo is a lot IMO. oh that JBL is a crappy amp IMO, saw one last week at a shop down in San Antonio and it's THD is outrageous from what i've been told. I'll take a zapco c2k 4kw instead plue their cheaper.

    Price range is definately not over 2000 I Can afford it but i'd rather get my motor finished before I spend too much on a stereo I might miss out on a 50hp upgrade or something lol.

    About sealed boxes. They are preferred, but only cause I don't know **** about tuning a ported box

    I'm from Cartersville to the guy who asked.
