the fubers suck, my friend had two and was hitting the same as me (with a cheap walmart meter lol) they didnt sound good and he had them in a sealed box. those DSM (you should know what this means being an owner of one) can make subs really LOUD!!!!!! i had  two cheap pyramids in a common chamber box and it wasnt bad for $200 (subs and amp lol).... but yeah my rockfords could hit as loud as my friends fubers.

If you can get a good deal on kicker product you cant beat the L5's and L7 12"s       with the power you currently have I would go with the l5's
put them in a 2.75 cu ft box with 2 4" aero ports that are roughly 14 inches long.
That should get you very very close to the 10 mark your looking for
add more power and it should get you over a 150 easily

Well, I already have one 12" L5 just cause I install radios, speakers, whatever almost every week in different peoples cars, and have acquired one in a trade. It's just that I put a lot of time in making this box that takes up my hatch, and having the Soundstreams at the time, cut to fit for 15" circles... so thats why I want to stay with round 15's. The power acoustik and audio pipe just have 15" subs that are around what I'm looking to spend. I know to go big, you need to spend big, but I just want to be able to spend a little, but hold my own at a comp, while still maintaining clarity and response for daily driving. Thats also why I was thinking the kicker crv15's, or crx15's. Obviously the crx's are better, but are the crv's that bad?

I hate double posting, but I've hooked up some Audiobahns, and think they sound pretty good for the money. What about their AW1500V or AW1500N?

no, audiobahn will sound like poop in a hatch, and will suck or blow at competitions

I know I sound like a noob, but I guess I am at this stuff..my first subs were from ma audio... I know this board generally looks down on MA, but what about two MA1500XL's

no, ma audio is low quality.
I have already told you the brands to look into if you are planing to compete and use the product as a daily driver as well
You will not be capable of over 150db with Audiopipe, audiobahn, ma audio and other low line brands with a stock style setup
If you really want to hang with the guys at shows I have already put it out there.   (2) 2006 Kicker L5s with about 2500watts Rms will do roughly a 153 with the right enclosure in that car
box of about 2.75cu ft internal with 2 4 inch aero ports with 14 inches of length.
That is an SPL box only, it would cause alot of damage to try and run that box with normal music.
I know you dont want to rebuild your box but that should be the least of your worrys, a sheet of wood is $22 the equipment will cost most of the money, then it is all about haveing a setup designed for street and a setup for SPL

Havent played with them, but I have been tempted...I have 2 much kicker equipment that I have collected to switch brands for competiton now.
I have said it before and will say it again, when it comes to competiton use, espically for any of the street or stock classes...The Kicker L5's and L7s Cannot and will nto be beat
I was running aginst Digital Designs 9915's and I beat that car with my little 10L7's   The Truck that did beat me at finals was using (3) Digital Desigans 9917's with close to 30,000 of power
He had me on both power and cone size
