If you don't mind....


I prefer a subwoofer which gives a smooth response from 30 to 60hz. That is mostly dependent on the enclosure. The size of the speaker has nothing to do with it.

I'm not trying to knock your question or make your decision harder but usually the determining factors are the space which you have to give, the money you have to spend and the power which you can deliver to the speaker.

Then beyond that, the final tuning determines if your setup will sound awesome or sound like ass.

I've heard 15s that sounded better than 10s, 10s that sounded better than 21, and 12s that sounded better than all of them.
BUT THAT DOESN"T MEAN 12s are better... I have 18s I would never part with :D

I once had four 6.5s running in a diamond enclosure which without seeing it, one kid swore was 18s.. and they were my midbass but I was broke when my sub died and I needed bass so I made a top-hat and mounted them in place of my 12.

Yeah i wasnt aiming for sound from the subs and what not i was just seeing what size subs people like the most. If they have something for a 15 inch sub then so be it. if they like 10 inch subs for some reason then alright i understand.
