I think i've narrowed it down... found a good deal on a Powerbass Xtreme and a Cerwin Vega Stroker.  the guy with the PB said he'd hold it for me.  I really want that stroker though.  Still time for recommendations, waiting on people to pay me for the stuff they bought.

I'm not bashing the W7 at all. There are many drivers that will outperform the sub for much less money...Enjoy your ride on your high horse with your W7 though.

my friend has 1 15" stroker pro series sub in a box that he built directly from the specs the technician from cerwin vega told him over the phone........i believe it has close to 3 cubic ft inside the box which is sealed......everyone had been telling him to use more space with ported box but he chose to do it the way the tech told him and it sounds to me like the guy knows his doodie.........he's running 2500 watts to it and its so loud its just uncalled for......he hit 161 db i believe......dont quote me on that but im pretty sure thats what he said it was.......

The ONLY subwoofer i have seen take upwards of 4,000 watts on a daily basis is the FI BTL. If your serious about using all that power look into ficaraudio.com. and im willing to bet that there is no way 1 stroker hit 161 on a REAL meter. :) without some MAJOR modifications to the vehicle.

honestly i dont really care if he is or isnt so your not bursting my bubble....If you READ AGAIN i said DONT QUOTE ME ON THAT.......meaning i could be wrong but so what if i was...thats why all the "EXPERTS" or the ones that think they are can post on here and verify it. I was just trying to give my opinion on how the stroker pro sounds and for being one sub in a tahoe, it POUNDS.

DO NOT WASTE THE $$$ ON THE CV OR THE PB! The CV is an output woofer ONLY, and they sound like crap. They'll do 60Hz all day long, and that's about it. NEVER in my life have I heard a decent sounding CV setup, and I've heard MANY CV installs.
The PowerBass is Swap-o-Rama gear. EXPENSIVE Swap-o-Rama gear, but cheesy, nonetheless. The RE is the best thing you have mentioned so far.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."
