Default Car sub for home O/B

Has anyone out there had any experience of Boss Audio Riot r15 subs? If so are the specs reliable and what are they like for free air use. The specs read well for an O/B to use "in house".
The Eminence Alpha 15" would be good but I cannot source these in the UK. (as far as I know)
Many thanks.

You can get the Alpha 15 and the Beta 15 which I thought had more suitable specs, from Blue Aran.

Hi richieOOboy, thanks for the info; I have looked at the Blue Arran site but must have been not paying attention as I missed the Alpha`s.
I have read that the Alpha`s make good O/B drivers but I have also read that in some peoples opinion the Qts is too high and that the fs is not low enough. There are alot of different opinions about O/B bass driver suitability it seems, and to be honest it is abit frustrating for an amateur like myself to make a decision. The last thing you need is to have a pair of bass drivers lying around that are of no use or do not perform as you wish.
Cost is important for me so the Emimence Alpha`s are a good choice at around £45.00 each but if you or anyone else know of any alternatives that you might find on the UK ebay site then I would love to know.
Many thanks. Jerry
