Default subwoofer recommendations....tight, low accurae and loud?

I've been out of the loop for a few years, kids, started a business...etc. etc. ....I'm sure ya'll can relate...LOL. Currently I have a basic system with a JL w7, focal polyglass comps, infinity coaxials for fill but want to change it up a bit now. I like the w7's as they put out a fair amount of volume and stay accurate while doing it but the one I have doesnt seem to get as low as I'd like. (ported to 32 hz. in small box)
Subs I've ran in the past were Diamond TDX, Oz Power series (really liked these got really low and very accurate) w6's, Arc, XXX original version, Brahma and many others.
I'm lookin at 1-15 , 2-12's, 2-10's or 3-8's have 1800 rms at 2 ohms to run the subs...would prefer to run 1 big sub , 2 tens or the 8's but don't want to sacrifice accuracy, and depth. There are many new companies on the market and they all seem to have good products but who makes the best for the buck that are as accurate as w7's and get low ? Is there a 15 that is fast reacting and tight that will sound tight like 10's but keep that low big woofer output ? If I do go with 10's or 8's will they have that deep low big woofer feel or be obviously tight and accurate but with the low lows? Apprecite all your input....

First of all, Your going to kill me if you keep saying they "Do" watts. They accept watts. Like your amp is the male, and your sub is the female. The girl just takes it. More power, the louder she is. Duh.

Default sa 8's

How many do you suggest and box size? Do they play loooow like bigger woofers or are they typical small woofer sounding? I looked up a few you tube videos and they seem to move quite a bit of air.... seen some guys doing some good numbers with SQ set ups....suprising

They get tremendously low and loud, I have many people seriously surprised in these. I have a single with around 6-800rms tuned 31, in bout .75cu ft. People ask if I have 12s or a 15. They are extremely durable, I abuse mine every time I get in the car and it keeps cool.

What's your budget? There's a lot of choices out there. I hear the z15 from sundown is a good sounding sub that gets loud. 2-sa10 or 2-10" dc level 3's would be dope. Like I said. It depends on the budget.

a w7 will play low and pretty loud. i think u should re build your current box before getting new subs. what size sub do u have? what are your box specs now? and how much power do u have?
