    JL Audio's H.O. W7 is so damn expensive.. I'm starting to look for other subs. What do you recommend?

    ...and yet i have not seen any of them go bad around here.

    edit: matter of fact, i've seen one pair have 5 different owners... and 2 of these kids destroy everything they own, and yet they still pound like new.
