    Well I had placed an order for 2 12" Diamond Audio M6 Subs with onlinecarstereo.com and they said that they were sold out and would not be getting any more. So I was wanting some suggestions on either 2 12" subs or a single 15" sub that has around 500 watts to 800 watts for the 12s or around 1000-1500 watts for a 15. I have around $500.

    Well, speakers do not put out "watts" in the way you are thinking. The ratings of 500 to 800 watts mean how much electrical power they can withstand, the actual number of watts they output (acoustic watts) is usually less than 10.

    Have you thought about an Adire Brahma 15" or JL 13W7, both should be able to be had for less than 500 dollars if you look around.

    Ive decided to go with two 12" Eclipse subs but am having a problem chosing which type. The sub i chose comes in two settings, a Dual Voice Coil and I believe a non dvc. Which one will I need if run two 12s? I will be using a RockFord Fosgate 1001.bd Punch amp to power them. The model number on the sub is SW8122.4 (non DVC) or the SW8122DVC (DVC one). Which one is the one I need so I can go ahead and order them. Thank you to all!!!

    One more thing, is that amp too big? I didnt know wheter to chose a 501bd or a 1001bd. The subs are rated at 500watts RMS and 1000watts peak. here are the specs for the amps

    501bd
    300 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms
    500 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms

    1001bd
    500 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms
    1000 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms
