I am writing in regaurds to my 19 yr old son! He has a 1995 olds Cutlass Ciera 4 door with a back seat that will not lay down!! I know my son is more of an SPL type of guy you could say, maybe 70/30 SPL over SQ, but here's where we sit? We have a Pioneer HU with a .5 ohm stable Lanzar Opti2000d we were going to maybe go with a sub 300 or under! I thought a 15 would hit a little harder but with the amp we have a single 15 dvc 2x2 won't go to .5 I don't think! 2 -12" optidrives will wire down to .5 and they sound good, we have heard a set before in my car! So, with a trunk set-up will a single 15 hit harder than the 12's???? Thanks, always enjoy your comments! Ps. I had a guy going to sell me a MT RE 15 for 380 shipped on ebay, but you know how that works? I have also ran accross a 15" L7 DVC 2X2 250.00 WITH A 4.0cu ENCLOSER! And a BL 15 FOR UNDER 300! remember he likes SPL so besides getting a new car what can we do??????? HELP!!
15 OR 12X2

Two 12s would be louder than one 15"

Two standard BLs would do well

NO L7s

And that amp is very inefficient and will put a hurtin on your electrical system.... don't try and run that without a high current battery and preferrably HO alt also.
