I prefer to buy new audio equipment, ESPECIALLY drivers.... Unless i can really test them out first and inspect them. Thats why i avoid Ebay for that stuff.

YES! These are one of the best subs out right now. I run two 12'* and they slam! They even come in DVC in case you want to run more of the amps power to one sub.

I would run one 10" or 12" with a decent amp, more space, less weight, and it will still sound great!

Run more of amps power to one sub? No.. It'* to give you more wiring flexibility.

Yea, thats what I meant, but the words sliped my mind... but it'* kinda the same, b/c I have 2 DVC 12''* running my amp @ 1 ohm, instead @ 2 ohms.

I hooked up my firebird friend with 2 HX2s running @ 1 ohm off a 1000w amp. And perfectly stable, never had one problem. Those sony ES amps are built like rocks..

1 12" Adire Brahma would make you smile That'* the next upgrade on my list.
They're rated for 1600W RMS 4000W peak thermally. But don't forget the box is everything. In a 1.0 cu.ft. enclosure it will mechanically handle about 900 RMS.
BTW, it'* the highest displacement 12" sub I've ever seen: 27mm xmax(thats one way and still in the magnetic gap). Nonetheless, quality will take quantity any day.
