    suggestions for a single 15"

    i want to get a single 15" sub for a system in my 94 MX-6. im turning the trunk into a box, the top will be 5-6" off the bottom and the sub will recess where the spare tire used to be. im looking for a single 15" sub. somthing that wouldnt cost more than $150 and could handle atleast 1000RMS. im thinking about getting a profile CL800 or a lanzar Vibe248 to push it... my last system was 2 aw1206t's and they sounded realy good being pushed by two lanzar Vibe268's. so im leaning twards a single AW1506T wit the smaller lanzar pushin it.... unless someone can suggest a better one for the same price range....

    for 150 - the best you will prolly do is a shiva, SS RL-i, AA atlas, tempest, or maybe somthing else. those are all under 185ish (atlas = 165+shipping) but they ait gonna handle no 1000w. 500~800 would be a better estimate... and the tempest will take 750 @ $150.

    so i dont know mang.

    if you can bust out another 50 bucks you can get a MOFO15 from dave shipped.

    If you haven't bought the amp yet, buy one with less power handling. You'll have a lot more choices for $150 in the 300-600w RMS range.

    All of these drivers are very efficient, so I would recommend one f these along with a smaller amp, especially since you are turning your trunk into a box, most of these drivers are large enclosure drivers.

    Is there a reason it must handle 1kW?
