    There is no best one.

    There may be one that is better for YOUR application.

    Vehicle? Amplifier? What type of music do you listen to? What is the goal of this install?

    ;)

    the best one is the one that performs best for you and your preferences. Some of the guys on here like the internet brands, some of us prefer established companies. :wiggle:

    I've always like Adire subs, had Shivas in my first setup, then switched to rock music and had 10" Brahmas. Absolutely love Adire. My friend has 2 15" Brahmas powered by a 2000watt Planet Audio amp, and that shit pounds like no other. The only problem is, what type of music do you listen to? With the music I listen to now (ska, punk, emo, screamo, rock), I prefer less SPL and more SQ. It's personal preference

    They're all decent. The current bandwagon brand is IDMax.

    I'd try to demo as many as possible and decide which one you like best.

    JL has a long established name of reliability and quality of parts and service. You also have the ability to buy them from a shop in most areas. This means you don't only get their quality, but if anything happens to your equipment you have a place to take it to. If you go to a good shop they'll likely swap out a dead W7 with a new one without you being out a speaker for a couple weeks like you would the other brands.
    IDMax is a good value and considered high quality.
    Adire has excellent tech support and they're willing to go the extra mile for you. Essentially online only. Anything happens you have to pay shipping back and forth and be without sound for a while.
