Question Help Choosing Sub!!!

I am using an Alpine MRD-M1005 amp:
1000W rms 2ohms, 700Wrms 4Ohm

Looking to spend around $200-400

Was thinking about 2 Alpine SWR-1222's or maybe a an Alpine SWR-1542. Which would push more air? Two 12's in a small sealed or one 15 in a nice big ported box? The box volume will probably have to be under or around 3.5ft^3 to fit in my trunk.

Also the subs will be going into the trunk of my '97 Toyota Avalon, if that makes a difference.

A single DD 12" in a HO slot port box would do the job just right.

Definetely go with one bigger sub. You could get a nice 15 in a ported box, and that would **** for sure. An RE SX15 or DD3515 would be pretty wicked.
