    Which system would you choose?

    I'm going to remove my MTX 4500 10" powered stealth enclosure. Im debating on which system to go with. I've usually always had 2 12"s(Soundstream SPL 12's, Image Dynamics IDQ 12's,JL W6V2's, Rockford T112d2's, etc...) and I'm thinking about trying something new. Which set-up would you guys go with: 2 Rockford T1 12's powered by a US Amps Merlin MD2D(1500 watts rms), 2 Rockford 15's powered by a US Amps Merlin MD2D(1500 watts rms), or 3 new series L7 12s powered by a US Amps Merlin MD2D(1500 watts rms). I've got another amp powering diamond audio mids and highs.

    I would do the 2 12's with a box that still has a t-top holder.

    out of what you listed the t1's would probably sound the best but there is better out for same price or cheaper

    If you want bass, I would use the Alpine type X 12inch, I am running 4 of them, and they are great

    i like JL, my 12 sounds cleaner than alot of double 10 setups, but i'm also biased because my initials are JL,

    Have you considered some FI Q's or ICON 12's?
