type Rs are good speakers, u may want to consider them if ur more on a budget, 1000 is a lot for an amp and a single 15 a WHOLE lot.

Well I was looking online and I found a JL audio 15w6 for the price that the guy quoted me on for a 15w3... that may be a possibility.

Yeah you can find some good things, just make sure you get some kind of warranty that means something.

If you can get w6 for that price... DO IT!

here the jl 500/1:

500 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm-4 ohm
(11V-14.5V)


looks like if u get a 15w3 u should get the dual 4 ohm model.

the 15w6 is also dual 6 ohm, so u'd run it at 3 ohms.

Either way i think u'd be plenty happy with those setups

if that amp actually pushes 500w through 1.5 ohms to 4 ohms, then either way would be fine. The dual 4 ohm setup, you would want to run at 2 ohms, while the dual 6 ohm setup you would want to run at 3 ohms.

Either way you should be getting full potential out of the amp.
