Default Need opinions on subs

I am looking at some subs, what do you think? I have a Viper d600.1 mono sub amp.. 600 watts rms @ 1 ohm.

are these any good?
2 New Cadence Wild Beast 4 Ohm Subwoofers WB12-4 Sub NR

2- ALPINE SWR-1242D 12" SUBWOOFERS DUAL 4 OHM



I had one of these before, and loved it...
2) POWER ACOUSTIK FUBR-12 12"

what about ONE of these?

POWER ACOUSTIK ****-12 12" 2400W CAR AUDIO SUBWOOFER 07


MA AUDIO HK12X2 12" COMPETITION SUBWOOFER


What do you think??? The Cadence seems pretty good, I have had one of the Power Acoustik subs, and I have heard alot of good about the Alpine...

I have about $250 to spend, and am looking for something that will POUND.

I DO NOT want Sony, but I am open to other suggestions... I just don't want to join a car audio forum for ONE question.

One or two subs will work also.

I'm kind of biased but Meh

http://cgi.ebay.com/MASSIVE-AUDIO-RW...QQcmdZViewItem

for the buck you will love this Sub

I went with the DMX series from Massive but really like the thump from the reference one'*

Stay away from the MA Audio sub.. There is no longer support for them. Massive has basically started a new brand and who knows who is running that MA brand now.

one step up from reference

I had 2 12'* in my car at ONBF that were literally Tortured to death and they ran great.

Type R are pretty good, Better than Avg SQ, great throw for depth and SPL.

I got a Diamond Audio D3 12" and it was as clear as crystal...
