Ive been told by a lot of people on this site that both the Cerwin Vegas and the Adire Shiva are both good subs that i will get good sq and spl out of, i was wondering which one of these is a better sub and which one is a better deal, here is their info

Adire

Cerwin Vega

I know that the Cerwins are a little cheaper but if it is worth paying a little more for the Shivas let me know, so if you could look at both of these and tell me which one is a better brand and a better buy
-Thanks-

So the shivas are a better deal for what i am getting, even though they are a little more expensive? because i am lookin at buyin 2 12" subs. What makes the shivas better than the Cerwins though?

they are both awesome subs..you need to get out there and try to sneak a peek at them yourself because of how similar they are. most people say youll get a little better SQ out of the shiva and some say youll get a little more SPL out of the vegas. take space into consideration, i know the shivas take up quite a bit more space than the vegas, ported or sealed. its just whats more appealing to your ears. im sure youll be very pleased with either of the 2 subs

for you this wont matter. but for anyone else looking into buying 1 of these 2 subs. if you are only getting 1 12" or w/e size instead of 2, then the V-Max would be to your advantage if price has any bearing on your choice. The Shiva only comes in a dual 8 ohm which means you would either need a 300w @ 4 ohm mono amp or a 300w @ 4 ohm bridged 2-channel amp. for the v-max you only need a 300w @ 2ohm mono amp which is usually alot cheaper than either of the other choices.

well i am planning on getting two 12" does that mean that i would have to look into a different amp than the ones that you have mentioned if i were to get two 12" instead of just one?

oh ok i got it so getting two of the v-max wont matter, even though they are the svc version, or will this limit the choices i have on amp selection?

No, two subs running at 4 ohm can produce either 4 ohm x 2 (2 imputs into your box, one for each speaker) or combined parallel to make 2 ohm, or series to make 8 ohm. Dual voice coil will just give you more choices....but also complicates thigs a little. have dual imputs @ 4 ohm each and run a stereo amp, or a single imput @ 2 ohm and run a monoblock amp.
