Hey everyone,  currently in the market for some new subs for daily use.  Looking at either one level 5 15 on a 3.5k, or 2 xl elite 12’s on a 2k each.   what would be better in your opinion, and why?  thank you

2-12's. More cone area with roughly the same sz enclosure and 2 amps to split the impedance rise. The two elite 12's handle more power also and would be more musical imo. 15 has a 3.5" coil so the 12's would be more efficient as well. 4400rms with more cone area as apposed to 3500rms with less cone area. 4k vs 3.5+k also. No brainier imo

yes.  would be a little more power with 2x 12’s.  but the 15’s get that low low bass.  i love the low frequency rumble.

have you already made up your mind then?  If you love the lows then id suggests a Sundown NSV4.

12's play lows. I have 4 in a Navi and they get just as low as my zv5 15 does. Go with Sundown tho for the low lows. Haha. EMF had a good you tube video about subs with the mega-roll surrounds and how they actually displace more air due to the significantly taller cone. Make no mistake about it, 12s will play the Lows if you tuned correctly.

Sundowns good. Use to wonder what the hype was but then I got a pair of their subs.... gotta say I’m on the sundown train now (atleast subs) can’t say anything about their amps

What makes you think bigger subs play lower?
