im looking into the BTL line

The BTL Series does what others cant. It allows you to tailor your subwoofer for your exact extreme SPL needs. Starting with our standard double stacked motor and 8 layer flat wind voice coil, you can tweak things with a variety of options. Need more power handling? Add a chamfered pole or axial cooling channels. Need incredible Xmax to feed your 160dB at 20Hz obsession? Add a third magnet and our extended length coils (26mm of Xmax). With over 20 different options to choose from, we can build the exact sub you need to fuel your SPL fire.

BTL Series: 10, 12, 15, and 18
Dual 1 and Dual 2 Ohm (custom options available)
Cast basket
Wrap around gasket
Kraft pulp fiber reinforced cone
Single layer wide foam surround
Push terminals
Extreme lead wire
FEA optimized motor
3 diameter 8 layer coil (High Xmax coil option)
Double stack magnets (option for third)
Quad progressive spiders
And many other custom options

and im not sure if i would go with a 12 or 15

seems ok, should have kept it at under $350 mark tho. automic apx gives this one a very stiff competition and is a better sub over all for just a tad more.

All subs are hand made to order and are designed by Scott from RE.

I have had great customer service so far. If you want some more info, pop by their official forum where you can get any answers you want.

As for the BTL, they are able to Handle alot more then the rated with upgrades...
