Default More issues. Help me with a solution

Long story short, the last recone I bought was junk. So now both of my subs need to be reconed and frankly, I'm sick of buying them

I think the only logical friction to go is a 4" coil sub, but that means going with 15's to keep the same box. Does anyone think I'll lose going from a 3" coil 18 to a stronger 4" coil 15? Or should I stick with a more robust 3" coil 15? It's starting to sound cliche but I'm on the fence between Crossfires and Sundown NSv3's, leaning towards Crossfire due to second hand prices

For once it wasn't completely my fault. Never once have I had a coil fail, dropped in a new recone with no changes to anything and the coil turned jet black and smoke poured out of my box today at a big meet that I was talking all sorts of junk at The coil on the other sub, that's about a year older, still looks brand new

I don't think many other woofers will like a really small box since you said your keeping your box.

15's would work fine in 4 cubes each. 18's I'm limited to Zv3's or NSv2's, neither of which I want to run at this current moment
