    Which sub to get?

    Alright guys ive had those Blaupunkt subs long enough, mainly because I never played them loud until now. ( I posted earlier the problem i had with distortion at high volumes ) I know this seems a long time away but around next December I will have a new sub, but I dont know which one to get. HOPEFULLY by then I will have a new car with smaller trunk and other space so it will be louder. I plan on doing some dbDrag, but I also want to have a sub I can listen to during the day. I am going to experiment with boxes on it ( one for spl, sq, ported, sealed, bandpass, ect. ) I really dont have a price limit but i want it to be AT LEAST a 12" driver, maybe 15 too. I was looking into the Brahmas, IDMAX, RE XXX, Type R's, Solo Barricks, Perfects, thats all I have right now, what do you guys think should go down?

    1 or 2 RE XXX 15's Have 2 boxes, 1 for daily driving and one really big comp. box if you are going to compete. The XXX's look promising and should deliver great SPL and SQ from what I have heard.

    Well I wanna see how they do before I but them, they should have reviews up before December, but i was also thinking of Audiobahn Alum12x. I know they arent that good sq wise but they are loud and cheap.

    Is the RE XXX Dual 4 ohm? If it is, can I put one amp to one pair of VC's that has 800W and another amp to the other pair of VC's with 800W to get 1600 watts ( its RMS ) ? does it work like that?

    From the way it looks on the site all the xxx's are quad coils, but I'm not sure about it.
