What's the closest (of course there's no equal) thing I can get to a W7 12" w/o spending $1000?  I'm looking for either a 12" or 15".  I've got 4800watts to play with.

And anybody ever used RE Audio?  I keep seeing them, and they LOOK good, but who buys subs based just on looks.

you serious? RE audio is awesome. not just looks. and you must be looking at shop prices for a W7 to cost $1000. W7 are good, i used to have an 8W7 that slammed, but they are not God of all sub woofers. in the last sound competition i entered it took 3 13.5" W7's in a x-cab chevy to beat my 1 18" SX from RE and even then he only beat me by a 10th of a db (good thing we weren't in the same class). 149.9db was my score and 150.0 db was his score with 3 of the biggest W7's they make vs my single 18. true story
i recommend the SX series, its a good all around sub with nice SQ and handles the same power as a W7, i run 2000 watts to mine all day

Ok, it's a pretty safe bet that I'm going with a 15".  Sooo....

Vega Stroker (always wanted these, but never seen them in person), HiFonics Olympus, PowerBass Xtreme, Diamiond AudioTDX15D4, RE SX15, or some other recommendation?

I absolutely hate the new RF products.  I loved the old school stuff though.  Just sold a pair of HX-2's.  Bought them just based on my experience, but never used them.  They're 1200watts, and my amps are 2400watts each.

RE all the way man. You would not regret it.
I got 2 SX 15's and the neighbors complaining because everytime I play them home, something is always falling in their house. and I am only giving them approx 900RMS each.

I'm still hesitant though... these are the first reviews I'm hearing about RE.  How would an RE SX 15 compare to a PowerBass Xtreme 15?

W7 is not that great at all bro...seriously you have been brainwashed by the JL hype and propaganda. There are subs that will walk all over the W7 in output and equal in sound quality for much less.
Sundown Nightshade would rape a W7 in output. Many other sq subwoofers also.
My Memphis PR 15 inch sub off 400 watts is louder than my friends 12W7 off a 500/1

no brainwashing required here... until i hear (more like feel) something that puts out like a w7, it will remain champion in my book.  back to the subject at hand though, more suggestions and less w7 bashing.
