Default Best $50 sub?

So, I am thinking I want to throw like 4 or 6 subs in my brother's Tahoe just to see how loud we can get it, but I don't want to break the bank on this little project. I am thinking some higher efficiency 12's or 15's for 50-75ish, but the cheaper the better. I've trolled Craig's but it's slim pickin's. Just looking around on eBay. I am seeing like Cadence "Flash", Powerbass, those flat looking PPI's, Planet Audio crap, you know... 50 dollar subs. Lol.

So, what's gonna hold together and get the loudest on say 4-500w each for ~ 50 bucks.

I know Image Dynamics ID series have been going for ~50 each on ebay. They don't get the loudest, but for $50 you will be hard pressed to beat them.

I have been testing with a powerBass amp and that thing is fully legit, but I didn't know how their subs were. They have 12's on eBay for like 50ish shipped.

A pair of PB 500w 12's for $85 shipped. Lol. How are people not running these? I think I need 8 of them.

How is Lanzar? I know their amps used to be awesome. Never run their subs though.

The older planet audio p212 s were pretty good for cheap got low were pretty musical I had a bunch in a van the newer apocalypse 12s are pretty cheap but thy look and feel cheap too they sound decent though.
I've seen the older cerwin vega vmax with the silver cone and red surround on eBay pretty cheap every now and then those would be my first choice forma cheap good sub.

memphis PRs can get pretty loud for how cheap they are too. I managed to pull a 137 out of a ported 10" with only 220 watts. the signal was clipped but it made it through haha.

There is a guy on my local CL selling 4 PR 12's.. He want's too much for them though. I emailed him. If he comes down I may go with those.

I'm gonna check out the Cerwin Vegas. Always liked them.
