Audioque. 10" or 12" both are badass.

Forget about the ED, DC and Audique shenanigans.. Id suggest the subway signature series roast beef sub, the 12 inch model preferably featuring lean and tender roast beef, with your choice of crisp veggies and fat-free condiments served on freshly baked bread!!

Kicker comp. I love mine. Even though I discovered today the rubber silicone is cracked but that's my fault for never putting a grill guard over it and it would hit the back seat.

I think you meant the kicker compVR, or also the apline type R, rockford p3. thats if you want to go with one sub.... if you want to go with 2... look at the apline type S or the kicker comp or the rockford P2

I'm guessing DC is pretty much a top shelf brand? I'll prolly do a sub and amp upgrade next year, I definitely want the best.

most people on here know about mainstream brands. i know about the other, which are better. FI, DC, DD, RE(old re not the X line), IA, RD, AA, AQ, Sundown, SSA. they all make great subs.

tyler how do you like your AQ 12 by the way?

and to be honest, having my 2 10'' kicker comp vr's (super old ones) were almost as loud as my single AQ 10.

and for years i ran those kickers hard and probably a lot of clipped signals and still sound great and work for my computer system.

SSA icon! But if you do get a new sub i would really suggest stepping out of the mainstream audio world.I really dont think i will ever go back to that stuff.

What size box do you have? are you keeping it?--- thats only one important factor when deciding on a sub..

I could put a $10 sub in its recommended enclosure and have it sound better then a $500 sub in a wrong sized box.

you guys can't just throw some names around and expect it to sound good. Many factors come in to play. there are many low cost subs that would blow many of the above subs out of the water. provided its properly powered in a proper box...

what sub are you running now? what size box do you have? (specifics) there are things you can do with what you have right now. whats your lowpass crossover set at? subsonic filter on? what Mids are you running? whats the highpass set at for those?

I think too many people are hanging out at SSA forums from the looks of the recommendations.

I doubt the cone would even move with the amp he has. (300w) the JL wants 500w to 1500w.
