wow, there's tons of subs out there, I think you need to specify your post a bit more, cuz I'm no expert and I can think of 20 companies to look at easily
Maybe your budget, what you expect out of them, how much space you got, what amp and power you want to give it/them, spl or sq ?

Well i'm a newbie at all this so first off what does SPL and SQ stand for ?
As for space i have a whole trunk budget is around 800 just for sub's and as for power , the more the better lol

Technically SPL would be making a setup that is going for pure volume, whereas SQ may be sacrificing volume for greater quality and synthesis with the rest of your system.

IMO going for pure SPL is useless, since you can make great SQ setups that can get obnoxiously loud.

With $800 you can do real well.
For around $200-250 you can find an amp that does 1500+ rms
For subs, 2 good 15's will run you around $400. Budget the rest for proper install and wiring I.E sound deadener and a 1/0 or 2/0 kit.

maybe take a look at poudthatsound, Trevor makes nice enclosures and he can get you SSA subs mounted with that, you would just need to grab an amp for that.

Sundown subs seem to be popular aswell, also their amps are well respected. they just released new 10'' sub.
