I posted here a while ago and it still hasnt come up. If it comes up in a while i appoligise for the double post.
So arrow here is my advice to you(again):
You would have better SQ if you went with 2 or 3 10" subs. I know that 3 subs wasnt really an option for you but you should consider it. 10's tend to hit every note because they can move quicker and sound crisper. 10's are also cheaper meaning you can get a better quality pair of 10" subs than you can 12" subs for the same price.
just my 2 cents.

Thanks audiobhan.  I never thought of it that way.  I might look into that.
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

That is patently incorrect.  There is no inherent reason why a 10" would have better SQ than a 12" or a 15" or an 18", nor are they "faster."  The "speed" (transient response) or a speaker has nothing to do with the size of the cone, but with the inductance of the voice coil.  10" is no better for SQ than any other speaker.

So a 12" is just as responsive as a 10" if it's the same line of subs?

Yup, and i'll back up that claim also. Of course there are variables such as the box size and such, ,but with everything in its optimum (power, box size/type) you would definately have a major task on your hand trying to determine the sound difference between a 10, 12, and 15, , the only noticable difference that really stands out would be the volume increase.

ok so maybe i was wrong. sry arrow.
I always heard that 10's had a better frequncy range because they could change directions and move at a faster speed because they had less air to move.

It's alright.  You aren't the first person to say it to me.  Put now I know better.

A lot of people think that, and on the surface it does seem logical.  It's just not true; it's one of the common audio myths.
