Default 15" Subwoofers (which would you get?)

Just a quick simple question. If you had to go with a single 15 setup which sub would win in this toss up

DC LVL 4 15
American Bass XFL 15

Both (rated) 1k rms, 2k peak and I've heard both a few months back but can't decide which to get.

It will be going in a wagon, box is 3.8 cu ft after port disp 3.65ish after your average 15" subwoofer displacement. tuned to 30 hrtz. Sub will be getting around 1k rms daily.

I hope it's not a 50/50 thing cause that never helps me decide lol but figured I'd ask.

I get paid wednesday and I hope I can decide by then it's such a tough choice

I have played with both the level4 and XFL in 15" form. Both woofers are very well built solid performers. Both will take well above 1krms clean. The xfl will run you alittle cheaper, but is on back order right now from AB unless you have a middle man. Another option would be find a oldschool RE audio SX 15, virtually the same as a level 4!!!!

Good! That guy blows the sundown horn so hard he jerks off to an SA 8 at full xmax, gags himself with a nightshade pole vent and chokes himself with several feet of Z tinsel lead

The SA 15, AB 15, and DC LVL 4 15 I can get for $190 for SA and $200 for DC/AB. it's a toss up really I know the SA is under rated slightly but will it really take 1,000 daily? I wouldn't doubt 800ish. might start getting hot after a while of demoing

Really wanna try the ab but the dc keeps tapping me on the shoulder saying "no buy me!" lol.
