Rockford Fosgate T0 124D V.S. PowerBass 2XL124D

Hey guys im in the market for some new subs. I really have a simple setup with a sealed 12" 1.3cuft box and an audiopipe ap 1500.1 Class D Mono Block amp. With this amp at 1ohm i can get 1500w RMS. I've had fusion subs which were DVC 4ohm 450WRMS 900WPeak, mtx terminator 12's, and alpine type r's which were also DVC 4ohm 1000WRMS 3000WPeak. With these 2 that im looking at now I believe that the RF T0 is much better brand and power wise they push 700WRMS and 1400WPeak which with 2 I will be just under my power. The guy at a local audio shop recommended the PB 12's, However i haven't heard much from them but the reviews i have read were good. The PB 12's are rated at 450WRMS and 900WPeak.

What would you guys suggest for my setup based on these 2 or if you know of any other woofers.

Thanks!

Rockford Fosgate's products simply aren't very good since production shifted to China- I would look at other products. Budget? Will you be building a new enclosure for what you buy?

Hint: "peak" or "max" ratings have no bearing on reality, so you can forget about any such ratings...they are basically bullsh*t marketing numbers that have nothing to do with properly matching amp to speaker/subwoofer.

I would look at better subs than the Rockford or Powerbass.
Look into the Alpine and Sundown Audio subs.

In general RF has never made good subs. There was a ~3-4 year period with the HX subs where they were making subs, but otherwise RF hasn't made any subs worth buying.

Look at Alpine, Sundown, Sound Solutions Audio, etc.

I've heard good things about sundown, never heard of the sound solutions. What subs from these brands would you recommend? I am keeping my same enclosure.
