Alrighty guys. I dont know if you all read my last post about the 15" M6, but now that i've confirmed its authenticity, i have to choose between that and one other sub. If I go with the M6, I can get it, and a pre-fabbed ported box for 200 dollars. My other choice is Infinity's top of the line Kappa Perfects 12.1D. I am running 2 12's right now, so i'd only need the subs. I can get them for 78 dollars a piece brand new. My question is, which set up will hit harder but stay somewhat clean? Again, i'm going to be running either sub(s) set up to a Diamond Audio D3 600.1 amp. Thanks.

You're getting Perfect 12.1's for $78?  Good price.  I assume they are not the new VQ line...

In any case, I'd run two 12's before one 15 if you want SQ.  Don't get me wrong Diamond makes some of the best gear out there (and I also verified that they make a 15" M6) and they are probably built better than Infinity.  My opinion is based of my preference for tight, accurate bass over low rumbling bass.  It depends on what you want.

Here's the real way to choose.  LISTEN to both setups.  Take your Diamond amp in to the shop and ask them to power up the 15 and the 12s with it and see which you like better.
