Agreed, Kicker could have good SQ depending on what enclosure you use. At the end of the day i'd say SQ depends a LOT on how you set the sub up and what enclosure its in. What kind of budget are you on and what Ohm/RMS are you looking for?

pro plus?!?!
agree, Diamonds are good, havnt heard focals so can say about them, but the Kappa Perfect Series are very good Although though there not that powerful, 400wRMS or something, but there nice subs. Heard Digital Design 9512 is suppose to be good for the money, but havnt heard one though .
Also have a look at Phoenix Gold's Titanium Elite 12, they are really big in the states and alot of people say that they sound MINT. Then again at 900 quid for the sub, they should be

yea, 1600wRMS according to the website Doesnt it use dual 2ohm coils? so you wack that into a 1ohm load, which will help some easing on the cash for the amp. The DLS A6 will be up your street mate, 1200wRMS @ 1ohms And also the Orion 1200D looks good too mate, same price as the A6 Although the 1200D says it can knock out 2500wRMS @ 1ohm at 13.8volts
Anyways, let us know how you get on mate and what it sounds like Although its gonna be loud

edit: Snap about the A6 btw mate, i would look at getting a split charge system going if your running that amount of power using a yellow top battery or something Also, might be worth upgrading the Alt and battery up front while ya at it Although it will be worth it in the end

You're after SQ and you're getting an RE XXX

If you want SQ I'd suggest going for a couple of Focal 5WS's.

And Infinity Perfect's, 'only 350RMS' but I still managed a recorded 145.2dB with two of the Perfect 12's.
