    That's a pretty vague question, and next to impossible to answer. Best SPL sub? Best SQ sub? Best sub with SQ and SPL?

    Treo CSX...they will get loud.

    Are you looking for woofers you can just burp at comps, or woofers that you can play music through and listen to daily?

    If you're simply asking about what is the most expensive, the one that I am aware of about is the A/D/S sub that cost about 3 times the price of a 13W7 over here.

    Doesn't go loud at all. Then again, that's not what SQ is all about.

    Bass drive-by's are uncool.

    you really should listen to a lot os drivers out there in the market to know what suits you. I still think you've not decided on whehter to want quality or quantity of bass.

    Most will say the W7 is the pinnacle for subs, while having the potential to go loud.

    You could also go for something much less expensive to get similar results. That's why subs that cost over US$500 over there might just not be too attractive an offer.

    I seriously would not recommend the A/D/S sub. It's only meant for IB applications, and can burn real quick with the wrong install. Burning a sub that's over $2500 minimum might not be to your liking.

    I think the W7's are worth the money. Hell, in my opinion, it's one the best "best" drivers out there.

    But since you want it loud, I would opt for something a tad bit more SPL inclined (though the W7's get quite loud).

    i have heard the w7's and they are one of the best i have heard.although 800$ just aint worth 1 sub.it didnt seem to me that it got very loud and that is fine because the spl was killer.i would much rather have quantity of bass than quality.i'd go for spl.
