    two xl 15's... those xxx's are so impractacle to mount honestly lol. like 13" mounting depth! also when a xl blows re-cones are readily available

    also this next comment is pertaining to your "meter score" want:

    a setup can be **** BALLS LOUD to the ear and be horrible on the meter. a setup can sound dirty to the ear and meter well. IF your goal is only to meter high and say "look im loud" then build a box and tune it to what your car meters highest at. if this is a daily driver, dont even worry about SPL honestly. alot of guys come on forums saying they meter this they meter that on music. Who cares in all honesty lol. im sure ima upset some people with this but hey, every opinion is worth reading.

    Since it is a larger sub, it is possible that it will get louder in the right enclosure. BUT, the XXX is not an SPL sub. If I am not mistaken the XXX is more SQ-oriented, or SQL, and the DC is more SPL-oriented.

    Re: Re xxx 18" vs Dc lvl 4 XL 15"

    xl's will meter louder, much more motor force than the xxx. but i would be willing to guess that the xxx 18 will sound much louder. some guy had one of the newer 18's and was pissed he couldnt break 145 with it, and then when i listened to it i was really surprised. he had a lot of flex and it sounded big and powerful. im sure this is a horrible generalization but from my experience, subs with more than 28mm of xmax or so typically dont meter as high but sound really loud in the car.

    Subs with higher xmax tend to play louder lower. That's usually means more even SPL levels and a wider range of notes so while it may not be as loud at it's peak note, it's louder overall if your looking at the overall range of notes the sub is playing..
