    Well I was going to buy a 19Ov.2, but when I called them I was told that they don't have a time frame for when they are getting their new drivers in.
    So that being said, I'd like some new suggestions for drivers please.
    I was thinking about the FI SSD 18, but was wondering if there would be a better combo out there or if some of the companies offer really good deals on buying more than one driver.
    Originally I was wanting to spend $500 or less for the amp/driver and everything else, but depending on the power per $ I might increase that. I love hard hitting music. The amp I was going to get for the 19Ov was the EP 4000. Also, I want to buy the drivers with the possibility of upgrading in the future, say going IB down the road (its just too pricey at the moment it seems).
    Anyway, thanks for any help I get from you guys. (Again)

    The Fi SSD is your best choice now. A single sub will handle the EP-4000. Or you could check with PSI car audio and see what he can build you. David offers more options that Fi so you can get a sub that fits your needs exactly. On the other hand, it's more expensive.
    Your $500 budget leaves out most of the TC Sounds subs. The Dayton models are great but the EP-4000 is way too much for them. That amp could easily power four of the Dayton DVC 15's.

    Alright thanks for continuing to help me out. Should I go with the dual 1 or 2 ohm and are there any of those extra options that are needed?

    As long as it is the dual 2 ohm model, then it will work. It is a high Vas sub so it does require a large box.

    I like the terminals from Parts Express. I've used a LOT of their 5 way binding post terminals on speakers I have built. You can also get similar terminals from Ebay cheaper. My last purchase was a dozen round, plastic ones with push terminals on them. For car enclosures, the push terminals are easier and faster to work with in a trunk.
