Hi , gonna ask some advice. See if there is any brands i might be missing or over looking.

I'm looking for best 12' sub on a 180$(shipping included) budget.
Prefer to be 750/1000 rms
dual 2's

Any suggestions? Its for a daily driver. My previous setup was a type R on 400wrms and it was decent but i want a little more if possible.
(new/used doesnt matter)
Thanks for reading.

If new for this price it will be hard to beat a type R,but there's the CSS SD12 , also some vendor might have some specials right now, so send some PM

Can you go 15" or dual 12"?

type r's handle 500 watts rms, and many guys run them with a lot more. Why not just add a second type r if you want more output?

I only wanna run 1 12 with dual 2ohm coils (my bad , wording)
Prev setup was a single type R
I would have liked to run more power to my type R but it got banged into in my trunk , and i didnt notice till the bass sounded "funny"....
And a 15 would need more room as would 2x 12's , its only going into a little staurn sl1.And i still need my trunk

I'd try running the single TypeR you already have on an amp that can output 600-700W. Perhaps that'll bring the output to a level you'd be satisfied with.
It'd be hard to find a quality subwoofer with an RMS rating as high as you've stated, for that amount of money. I'm using a friend's TypeR in a sealed enclosure right now. Its running at 2 ohm, and getting up to 640W from a Memphis Belle amplifier.

I assume you want a dual 2 so you can wire it for a 1 ohm load on the amp. Is your 'R' a dual 2?
