What's your budget? Because we can recommend things much much better than that...

Talking Strong 12" sub under $1000...

There are a lot of options for a good pair of subwoofers for under 1000$ shipped! 1000RMS per sub you say? How's 1200RMS per sub? http://www.soundsplinter.com/rls_ser...formation.html

Haven't heard them personally, but have experience with the cheaper (and smaller!) RLi series, and couldn't be happier (two RLi-8's in the girlfriend's car...gotta love a girl who likes the bass! ). Two will run you 459$ each, for a total of 918$ before shipping. They get my vote!

Good luck!

if you're just going for high SPL you should try looking at some pro drivers. They all have high sensitivity and most have high power handling. Small xmax is typical, but you said SPL and not mega low bass, and well a car is a forgivable environment for a low Xmax driver...

Efficiency I think is important if you wanna get ahead in the car audio SPL game... Whats the point in spending big bucks on megawatts if you could double, triple, or quadruple your efficiency and not need near as much power. Good high power car amps are expenisve, along with batterys, and high guage wire
