I'm helping my buddy out with a system and he wants 2 12's. He's got around 1500 to spend on a pair of twelves, a box, an amp, wires, and an extra battery if needed. He said he'd like it to be louder than a pair of Type X's so i'm thinking I should get him one of the 135 a/h batteries of these forums and find him an amp that pushes like 1800-2000 but I don't know if i can squeeze everything on the budget AND beat a pair of Type X's. what do you guys think? He will be listening to all rap and hip hop btw, so he's definitely looking to go ported but does want some good sound subs. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks so much, Austin.
