    ID vs Kicker vs Alpine vs Boston Acoustics

    I am looking at moving down from 2 10's to a single more efficient 10. Not sure on box, but I am going after SQ so it will probably be sealed. Right now I am planning on using my Rockford Fosgate 360a2 amp (2 channel, 400 watts rms @ 4 ohms bridged), but I may upgrade to an Alpine amp either a 400 or 500 watt if it would help. I am looking at the ID10v3, Kicker CVR, Alpine Type R, and Boston Acoustics G2. Which of these would be the best for SQ? I am not worried about loudness, which is why I am not keeping my dual 10's. Most of my music is rock/alternative/county/old school rap. Which sub would you suggest, and also would the amp upgrade be recommended? Thanks for all of your help thus far.

    I love the IDQ but it is out of my price range, I have $200 for sub and box. Thanks for the suggestions, any more?

    Mach 5 audio have pretty good SQ. and its 350 rms and only comes in dual 4.
    The ID is a SQ sub and has proven to be so for many years. the latest version just gets better.
    A used DIYMA 12" shoudl only run $100

    I know I've mentioned it to you before, but have a look at the Dayton HO 10. They are great subs... and on sale at Parts Express for $115, right now.

    I've use the ED's there alright but personally I would run with the ID, and you may find a Q for a decent price used, just look for good seller

    I was actually leaning towards the type r, but yet no mention of it. I have been told it is awesome. How would it compare to the regular ID in a sealed enclosure? Thanks.

    Can't compare them really. Unless you are talking about the IDMax. Even then, the ID would **** all over the type R. If you are on a budget, then the R's will suffice, they get loud and sound decent. Probably want a nice ported box so they shine.

    I personally would go Q ID, but you already mentioned you couldn't afford it. What about a Kicker CVX? I have 1 12 and love it to death and have owned ID, Typr ARRRRRRRGHS and other mainstream, internet based brands and put this up there as one of my favs.
