    You may want to look at some of the Dayton drivers from parts express, Adire Brahma, Magnum D2's, Resonant Engineering, or Elemental Designs. Most of these drivers cost a little more, but are all very nice subs and are worth every penny. Not saying the HX2 is a subpar sub, just giving you some more options to look at.

    Depends on the subs, are you set on just a 1 sub setup or did you want to go with 2? A power hx2 would take that much power like a champ, but there's not going to be too much SQ. About 70/30
