    Help picking best subwoofer choice!!!!

    Hey guys i wanna get 2 15" subwoofers and was wondering out of the brands i will present which will hit the hardest as in SPL and shake my windows... my budget is $300 for 2 subwoofers and i wanna wire them to either 2 ohm or 1 ohm... once a gain looking for about 75% SPL and %25 SQ. And then tell me why and a good recomended amp i should get for $150 or under.... all of this is in my price range

    The subs are either

    2 15" sound solutions audio dcons
    2 15" skar audio IVX
    2 15" sundown audio e series
    2 15" audioque sdc 2.5
    2 15" american bass Tnt

    thanks in advance!!!

    get a bigger budget and go with Psi FTW

    If you cant do that go with AQ and get an audiopipe 1500 or 1800 they put out good power at 1 ohm if you have the electrical otherwise stay at 2 ohms

    If you put any of the choices you just picked in a proper ported box it'll put those kickers to shame, and it'd sound much better. Especially if the kickers are in a prefab box. You gain a pretty good amount of cone area and you're prolly doubling the power you are currently running. The only sub i have used outta that line up is the sdc and mine was a 12. It was a very nice sub for the money, but now i have a sundown sa 12 and even in the same box on the same amount of power it gets lower and louder than the AQ ever did. So me personally id look into the e series.

    Of those you noted, sundown and ssa, would be your best options. And yeah, an audiopipe apsm 1500 if you can do 1 ohm, and a apsm 2000 if you do 2ohm. The enclosure, as stated before, is the most important aspect.

    2 15's in a nice custom, ported box on 1500 watts or so should hit higher than 135.
