picking a new sub help

well i ordered a kenwood amp and sub but apparently the sub has been discontinued so i have an amp and no sub so the company will substitute in a different sub but i have to pick, the amp i have is a 1000watt 300-500rms depending on how its wired and the box i have is 1.2 cu ft sealed
these are the subs i have found that seem to fit the required specs and in my price range
Pioneer Premier TS-W1208D4
Pioneer TS-W308D4
Infinity Reference 1252W 12" 1200W Dual 4-ohms Subwoofer
what do you guys think i should get?

the pioneers are garbage. if your dead set on those i would go with the infinite. but if you want a good sub i would get Rockford Fosgate or MTX

well i ordered a kenwood and its been discontinued so those are all similar spec and price
ive heard that pioneers suck and am kinda skeptical about those i know rockford is top the line but also a lot more but you get what you pay for i guess

Pioneer (unless theyre the carbon fibers)= **** off the neighbors
kenwood = **** of the street
MTX = **** off the community
JL = **** off the entire city!!!

I personally have always been an Alpine guy myself, i am currently Running a Type R 12" sub, and i feel that gives me a pretty good amount of bass... you could tone it down, and save some money by running a 10"....

Or you could always jam a 15" Type X.... Put it behing your drivers seat, and enjoy a back massage whenever you drive

:-p haha

But i do stand behind Alipine

All I will say is this... Don't jump on the JL bandwagon. I know people that have blown away JL setups with one properly set up Pioneer. Check out CarAudio.com if you want help.
