What to change the MT out with?

this summer im planning on changing up the setup, 450$ per sub is my limit and they must run on the A3000s, so an A3000 per sub(around 2000-2300rms each), box will be no more than 7.5-8 cu ft, tuning at 34hz probably

2 RE MX 15s
2 RE MTs( get the 18 reconed and rebasketed to a 15 dual 1.4 and buy another 15 dual 1.4, so run each A3000 at .7 ohms)
2 memphis Mojo's 15s(what can these actually take daily?)
2 TREO ssx15's(probably a little pricey, and hard to find)
IA warden(if they ever come out)

sq isnt my main concern, i listen to mostly rap and MT does fine

i just think the 2 MT's would kill 2 MXs for the same price, and the others are just as expensive as MT, and i would rather have RE, although IA is located not far from me

2 mts...for sure

no question about it

i wish i had more $ to spend on my system...i want a lift, xcalibrator II, exhaust, intake, pullies, etc...then my upgraded system will come into affect.

i.e. amped components, carputer, 2500d for my subs, more dynamat...just the basics

yea, but i heard DD was crazy at recones these days, dont know though, but for MT i can get a guy 20 mins form me do it for like 30+parts, not very much $$$ for the recone kit

and i would have to stay with my RE over DD, no reason though, and i know what the MT's can take before they start hating you

also last time i check the 9500's were pricey

and i would only do 8 cubes for subs, but MT's doint need a ton of space really, i know 4 will do them good at 34hz

2300rms each
