    Best 12" SQ sub for under $200 bucks sealed box?

    Looking for the best 12" sub for under $200 to put in a sealed box. More concerned with sound quality.

    I'm considering a Memphis MCP12, SSA Dcon 12 and a Re SR12 right now. I have not heard the RE in person though.

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Trying to stay under 500 watts rms @ 2 ohms in this setup.

    Thanks!

    Out of those the Dcon. Out of the other subs on the market the Dayton HO or HF 12" or a Creative Sound Solution SDX10". Maybe even a TC built woofer.

    tc sounds epic is a perfect coice. except for the 2 ohm part. its dual 2 coils. an eclipse sub would also fit the bill quite nicely

    ^^^^TC SOUNDS are awesome. And i would actually choose them over the dcon. But the dcon is still very nice and very inexpensive.
