    Which subwoofer should i get?

    I want to get one 15" subwoofer for my truck for $350 shipped. This will be my first system ever so im kinda excited! I want enough spl to shake things inside my truck but i want a sub that will hit lows well. The subs i am looking at are the Fi Q 15", the Fi Bl 15", and the AQ HDC3 15". I am not sure about what amp i am going to use but right now im leaning towards the AQ 1200d. If there is another amp that will create a better setup for one of these subs for about $250 then please let me know. I will have a ported box made for which ever sub i choose. I have read that it does make a difference what vehicle its in, so its an 04 Chevy Avalanche facing foward in the cab replacing the midgate. Also note any other subs for the $350 shipped that would be worth looking into as well as an amp to suit them. Any help and opinions are much appreciated.

    you should buy one of the treo csx's that me and nate have for sale for 350 shipped.

    then put it on a dsc 1500 (which nate happens to have for sale for 175 +shipping iirc)

    Go with a Sundown SAZ-1500d for the amp and talk to SPLaudio or SSackett about building you a sub. the box is no biggie.

    For 1200w, I'd do the Q.

    Hit up splaudio and get him to build you a sub. for the price you'll pay for those subs he can build you a better one.
