    Which subwoofer should I buy?

    I just got a BP1200.1 amp and I plan on running only one 12 in a sealed box. There are 2 requirements that the sub must have. 1.) It must have excellent SQ. 2.) It must be loud enough for people to hear me comming down the street . Please suggest 1 sub in which you think can accomplish this task. Price is not an issue, I just want to narrow it down to one sub so I know what I am going to get. I already know in my head a few subs in which might be able to accomplish this, but I would like to hear suggestions/opinions of people who "HAVE HEARD" the sub that they suggest.

    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated by me

    *update* Also I would rather get something other than the W7

    db drives platnum series 12" is very loud and was really accurate in a ported box so sealed i think it would sound outstanding. They are dual 2 or 4 ohm and cost about 150 shipped and hadle 1500rms. www.dbdrive.net

    I've never heard of them and it doesn't say rms on the website

    I once owned a Digital Designs DD9512e Series subwoofer. Very loud, and good SQ (at the volumes that you could actually listen to...).

    Well, if price isn't an issue...look into jl 12w7, RE xxx, SI magnum D2, ID max, etc.

    Re: Which subwoofer should I buy?

    Ive heard the L7 is good but that would require me to cut my box into a square (pain in the ***) and square subs kinda look funny to me, but if it was really worth it I'd get it, but I would like to hear more opinions first.
