    I am leaning towards the fosgate line. I know JL audio have alot of bump but I feel that the lower wattage speakers will perform just fine if the box is built correctly. JLAudio are expensive to. I am looking at one 15" that is gonna run me just under $200 smackers. Whats the cost of JL nowadays?

    If u want a really loud thump in ur ears, go for the Kicker high end range, e.g. the L7's....only down side of these is they need a hell of a lot of power!

    im after loud thumping, as loud as possible for under $500AU so what u guys suggest. I was leaning towards 2 W3 or maybe 1 W7. and yer i also have to remember the cost of powering these things.

    I can get good solid earth shaking bass that sets off car alarm in parking lots while driving down the road with low wattage speakers. Get a good amp and make the box to specs of the woofer. Push clean wattage into your subs with a good amp and keep the wattage specs in mind. I had a punch 500 pushing 4 RFZ 15" fosgates that put them right in the RMS zone and no one could touch it. I was sending around 175 watts to each 15 and the specs called for I believe 150-200 Rms. They slammed harder than anything I have heard in a long time. I wanted to compete in the under 1000 watts comp but never got around to it. I think I would have blown the comp away.

    I just dont think 12s have the capability I am looking for. I like that bass that carries for ever. Not so loud in the cab but just carries for blocks. I noticed you can only get that with 15s and 18s. Maybe I am wrong on this but I have not heard any 12s that could pull this off.

    Well I take that back. In 1993 I heard a truck with 2 12" mtx blue thunders that bumped hard and low. Then I heard a couple of 8" subs in a 7th order that sounded like an 18" turned down. The bass carried far!!! It was amazing but since then I have not heard anything do it.
