    Lol, nice name by the way! Is size a limit for you? A 15 will generally not need as big of a box as an 18.

    What would you be using to power whatever sub you decide on?
    I've never smoked a thing in my life but I have a lot of friends who do. It's fun being around them when they're high as a kite

    Well if space is no issue I'd do the 18. The DC's do really well in small boxes anyways. I'd always heard that and recently took to modelling them to check it out and DC has really done a great job building woofers that work well in small ported and sealed enclosures, they hit the nail on the head with many of their subs.

    That's what I was thinking, too. No matter how big of an American Bass fanboy I might be.

    If you ever decide to sell that 2200 let me know, depending I might be able to work something out.
