Subwoofer choices

Trying to get some feedback on some subwoofer choices. I'm looking at a single 12" driver in a sealed box. These are my choices which are all single 4-ohm and about 350-360 watts rms. My amp is a 360a2 which delivers 360 watts rms into 4-ohm mono

(1) Soundstream Picasso PW-12
(2) Polk Audio db124
(3) Infinity Perfect 12.1

Price is about the same for all 3 brand new

Out of the three, personally I would choose the Infinity. With that said, however, I have not heard the Picasso.

Depends on your budget, out of the three I would say the Polk is the best bang for the buck.

Infinity here. Been pounding mine for 5 years and their still going strong, and I'm getting impressive numbers out of them for spl this season also.

What is the goal? Ultimate SQ, ultimate SPL, or a healthy mix of both?

The 360a2 is good for [email protected] and there are plenty of great choices in this power range.

Going for SQ mostly. I want to be able to hit every bass note (highs and lows) with precision and clarity. Doesn't have to be a loud subwoofer. I'm looking for clean bass.

And yet another vote for Infinty Perfect, if all you need another push
Infinity came out of nowhere with the Perfect Series sub. Way beyond their lower end like regular Kappa. Very good SQ.

the infinity is a magnificent subwoofer regardless of price...very clean and well behaved and it gets plenty loud. I have not heard the other 2, so i can't honestly comment on them.
