    my sub blew, what should i get now?

    one of my subs blew over the weekend. so now this finally forces me to change my setup. i had 2-15L7's but now 1 is blown. so now im gona change them out. i was thinking of goin with 2-12's that would completely blow the L7's out of the water. any suggestions? the power ill be working with is a zx2500 or 2-zx1500. i have 3 amps. so give me ur opinions and remember, i want crazy loud. $ isnt too much of a issue. thanks

    run the other 15L7, and build an spl enclosure for it....spend the money that you would spend on 2 12's and design/build an enclosure

    That would be the logical choice.

    It's what I would do.
