With 1000rms x 1 at 2ohms I'd go with a single 12

Image Dynamics IDMAX
JL 12W7
RE Audio XXX
Orion H2
Kicker 12L7

something like that would be tons better than the 1251T's,I had a set of these subs about a year and a half ago and the sound quality of them is pure shit and they do not get loud enough to justify the lack of sound quality.

if you are wanting 2 12's look into

Alpine Type R's
Memphis PR's
Cerwin Vega V-Max's
JL 12W3's

what all do you have to spend,are you willing to buy off ebay?

thanx for the input

if i wanted to go dual Kicker Solo-Baric S12L7 L7 12" Subwoofer could i still use that audiobahn amp. or will i be singing "BOOOOM, goes the amplifier...." :bye the amps are rated @ 500w RMS x2 still shy 250W RMS would that kill the amp? or amp just wont fully utilize the subs power? and run 'em as 500w subs each?

would dual sound better than single sub?

and single would be going into this enclosure http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5742527058&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

just a matter of how im gon keep it from moving around in the trunk

this is what i plan on buying as setup

HU: Pioneer DEH-P860MP $415.00
Front speakers: DIAMOND AUDIO M661 6.5" $220.00
Rear speakers: Diamond Audio CM361 6.5" (filler) $155.00
Amp Kit: Rockford Fosgate 4-Gauge Dual Amp Wiring Kit $175.00
4-chan Amp: KICKER KX800.4 amp (800w) $235.00
2-chan Amp: AudioBahn A2502DP True Digital 1000RMS watts 2-chan $220.00
Sub: Kicker S12L7 12" 750w RMS
Sub Box: Kicker Box $50.00

[edit]

i'm willing to spend $1500 +100 if i have to
will be ordering piece at a time receiver first, speakers, 4chan amp + amp kit, 2 chan amp, sub + box in that order

The L5/L7 is a good sub but IMO a bit outdated as you can get around the same output with a different sub with it taking less room and power while still retaining better sound quality.Subs are totally different thing than 5 years ago,there are a lot of companies that are not mainstream that you get a hole lot more for your money.

these are starting to make a good name for themselves also email or call www.reaudio.com about a SX12 or a pair of SE12's
