I am debating between a 2 woofer or 1 woofer system.  If i go with 2 subs they will be Infinity Perfect 12 DVQs.  If I go for 1 sub it will be an Eclipse SW9122.  No matter what configuration I go with, the sub/subs will be powered by a Phoenix Gold Xenon 600.1 amp for now.  The amp puts out 600Wx1 for a 1-4 ohm load.  Oh yea and I forgot to mention,  I want SQ.  Which setup would you go for?
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

i would go with 2 infinity's. That way you will have a louder bass at a lower volume. Low volumes have the best SQ and with just one sub you would have to turn it up and risk some distortion to get the same volume.

I am not really too interested in it being really loud.  I just want it to hit every note and sound good.  If it's loud that's a plus, but not the most important thing.

Infinity is excelent SQ, i am doing 2 infinity subs this winter. SPL is only fun for so long, but quality is good forever.

I would drop the single 12" titanium and instead go to two 12" aluminums from Eclipse. I say this as I know it to be a top notch performer based on years and years of happy customers with this exact set-up. As a byproduct of using these subs, if tasked, it will play more than loud for most people as well.

But do 2 12" Eclipse Aluminums sound as good as 2 Infinity Perfect 12DVQs?

Anyone else second that opinion or think other?  It's not that I don't trust you forbidden, I just want to get other opinions.  Thanks for the help so far.

Go with the aluminum setup... Not that I don't LOVE the SW9122, but 600 watts WON'T be enough... this I promise you. I have the Eclipse DA7232 running mine, and it is a good match - that's 2kW, RMS, BTW...
Rob is right though. My opinion is that the Eclipse is a far better sounding woofer than the Infinity. The Infinitys are no slouch, but the Eclipse aluminums are just better sounding for my money.
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."
