Default best 15" 4ohm sub for a TH ??

i am looking for a 15" subwoofer that would be good for a TH project it needs to be 4ohm though.. Please send me your best suggestion.. Also needs to run at least 500 rms closer to 1000 watts continuous would be better.

What are your goals for SPL, low cutoff, power applied, size of cabinet, number of cabinets, where will they be used?

I agree completely. Stating driver size and power handling is the backwards way of designing a sound system. It should be the other way around:

1. what are the sound requirements
2. what is the most effective way of getting there

Goals are as such
1.SPL high as possible with some sound quality i don't want a one note wonder
2.low cutoff used for playing pop rap music so ?? 40hz
3. power applied 1100 watts rms 4ohm load amp
4. size of cabinet - 5.9 cubic feet roughly.. this is relation to my TH box posting from yesterday.. box would be 58"x10"x18"
5. number of cabinets - 1
6. where will they be used? my wakeboad boat.

Also if you look at my post from yesterday the last comment and design is showing the TH with a side exiting port.. I have not built a TH before does a side exiting port work? Hope this info helps.
