Looking to replace old subs, need advice

Okay , since one my kickers (L7) cracked and has a hole in it im looking to replace the subs completely , not a fan of square subs anymore plus ill have more room in my trunk .

Im keeping the Hifonics BXI2008D amp and now im looking for new subs which will use all the power coming from this amp.

Which subs do you guys recommend ? ( Im looking for sound quality not SPL and please anyone dont say Alpine type r's { hate them with a passion } i want something which is not common lol )

This is my current setup.

Not very happy with the design of the enclosure and i dont have any room in my trunk , meh BMW's

I just want quality bass even if its louder then the vocals. The Kickers sound really shitty.

A single DD9512 will do the job for you but it is going to be well over the $500 mark.

I am beeting the crap out of my Xcons on a daily bassis and they just laugh
at me....by far one of the tightest/quickest sounding subs I have ever heard
and they hit like a sledge hammer (31mm one way excursion...LOL)
a very nice SQ woofer

Ok, since i just spent $1500 on car repairs today ( Overheating ) i wont be getting new subs sorry for wasting your time guys.

But I do want to get a box which will get the max Sq from these L7's ( Getting a new one to replace the cracked one ) and less space. Is that possible ? This box is too big and i cant use my trunk at all, anyone recommend a place where i can get a new box built and someone who knows what there doing. I didn't get the last guys problem and why he argued with me on which position the sub should be facing and he still did what he wanted too, WOW . Anyways let me know everyone .

Thanks
