    What 12's should I get For My amp?

    I have a Rockford Fosgate 451s amp that runs 225x2 watts rms at 2 ohm, and 115x2 watts rms at 4 ohm, and 450 watt bridged stable down to 4 ohm.
    I currently have a polk momo mm12 in the momo enclosure but it doesn't satisfy me because it's a svc 4 ohm and it's not running loud enough,good sq though
    I want to run 2 12 inch speakers in (4 ohm dvc) with a high effeciency(spl) and good sq. My price range is about 100-200$, mostly in the 150$ range would be good.

    ?QUESTION?
    Would I be able to get 1 really good woofer(2 ohm dvc)in the 300$ range and wire it to my amp and have 2 ohm(stereo) playing instead of 4 ohm bridged(mono). If this is possible what kind of enclosure would I use?? Because most single 12 enclosures come with a single spring clip or a 5 way binding post,
    would it be possible to independent wire it in a 2 ohm load?

    A reply would really help, Thanks

    u try an memphis HPO' s or you could get a Amercian Bass I am debating the same kind of setup too. And if u want High Spl and good sound quality I would get an big sealed box or an bandbpass box.

    For spl and sq (otherwise known as sql) you DONT want a bandpass or big sealed box, you want a low tuned ported box some weres in the 35hz range will sound good and get loud.
