    Whats the best to get?

    As you can see from below that my system needs a lot of work and I saving up for a new one. I was wondering are the best subs to buy like JL or Eclipse and kind of box to put it in and powered by new amp, but I need a good one. So any suggestions would be helpful.

    I don't think the Eclipse will be as clean as JL it mostly depends on the model though.
    If you are gonna pay that kind of money look into these as well.
    Perfects
    Image Dynamics
    Kicker
    There are others but this should be enought to keep you busy for a while.

    Seems as you are looking for primarily SQ based on your initial selections.

    The Eclipse 8800 series would offer your supreme SQ and extended bass response.

    I would also suggest looking into the following models too:

    IDMax
    A/D/S 312RS
    Alumapro Alchemy
    Infinity Perfect
    Boston Accoustics Pro

    take it easy,

    Have had a few of the subs listed and to my amazment tried a set of alpine type R,s and they still impress me everytime I turn the knob up ! running them on a jbl 1200.1 in sealed .88 boxes , Very impressed with SQ and SPL ! By the way they are running at 4 ohm at the amp ! wish i would have bought the 2 ohmers !! Cant imagine it being any better thou ! !

    others

    OZ Audio and Crystal CMPx" is also an excellent choice. And if you are on a budget there should be some great deals on some IDQ's, that is if there are any about.

    Oh and mykeys - come on, an Eclipse Ti DVC not being as clean as a JL???? C'mon!!!!!!

    Personally, if I had the money, I'd buy Orions...I've never seen a sub get kicked and still play like nothing happen. I can't remember what type sub it was but it was crazy.



    So lemme get this straight...You want to buy two 15" subs, and your favorite music is Metallica? Uh...
