best possible subwoofer for this amp

i have a stock oem mercedes head unit "2010 mercedes e550" with a audison bit one and hertz mille
fronts and hertz hcx 165 rears and now i purchased my amp and have only the subwoofer or subs too buy.

Money is no option i just want the best possible sub or subs for the power i have available too me without under or overpowering it and want it to be sq and spl both for hip hop only music

The amp is a Audison voce 5.1k 5 channel amp wich the monoblock part of the amp is 1000 watts rms i believe
Load Imp. 5 Channels
4 Ohm 75 W x 2 + 140 W x 2 + 600 W x 1
4/2 Ohm 75 W x 2 + 140 W x 2 + 1000 W x 1
2/4 Ohm 75 W x 2 + 250 W x 2 + 1000 W x 1

Its a pretty decent amp i hear and well built and expensive lol

Im thinking 1 15" or 2 12" or possibly a 13" w7 , whatever would sound best
Im in canada so alot of the american brands like dc , re audio , sundown arent ready available unless i wanna pay a boat load on shipping and duty
so im inclined to buy a brand that is available to me.

the brands i have to chose from are JL audio , DD "Digital designs" Focal
arc audio , hertz , audison.

So what sub or subs would be perfect for that amp? and as for box i can get a custom one built or go with one of those small JL audio boxes with the single 13w7 and have lots of trunk space left wich would be awsome but never heard one before and worry it wont hit hard enough or i guess even those smaller ones with 2 12" W3v3.
Anyway please let me know thanks

I'd go with a w7 for a mix of spl and sq
for pure sq go with an audison thesis basso 10
also try the focal kx 13"

Focal Kx series highly recommended i also know the only sundown rep in ontario (maybe even canada) so if you want heavy spl bass visit him he is in ottawa if you want SQ go wth focal or audison the w7 is nice but needs lots of power

The size of the enclosure will determine the size of the subwoofer. A pair of 10's or a single 15" will give you great results in an ideal size enclosure.

Go with Jl....
I run a single JL Tw5 13.5" slimline sub in a sealed enclosure that I built pushing about 500 watts to it
and I have to say it's more than enough!

you can watch the bass waves wash down the sides of my jeep jk wrangler when the beats DRop
