well imo i think you should go with what you like the most, as long as you've listened to each one to get your own opinion on them. least if you get em from FS/BB, they have excellent purchase protection.

ya I'll have to take more pictures, I'm pretty sure it sits lower now, I took those pictures soon after i put the tires on, so I think the suspension settled down. Otherwise I'll have to work on the wife to let me lower it down.

not accounting for sensitivity, check the xmax on both type of subs, and check the area of displacement, multiply and do the math, then compare the results. being as the kicker is square, you'll get a bit more displacement as compared to a round sub.

dual 4ohm voice coils? or
dual 2ohm voice coils?

if i'm correct, 4ohms will get you either 1ohm or 4ohm load

and the 2ohms will get you either .5, 2 or 8

depending on how you hook things up obviously
