i have no real opinion about the sizes of subs...but as far as the number...i'd run 2. there is a lot of debate about how much difference 2 more subs can make, so go with 2 because i'd bet that there's little or nothing to be gained with the other 2 subs. unless what you're looking for is a fairly unique setup, then i'd say go for the 4...it's all in what you really want
so to sum it up for good performance with fairly common looks...prolly go with 2 subs in good enclosures
but for looks with fair performance...go with 4

go with 4 subs because you have more surface area and then it will move more air.then this will have a bigger impact.

unless of course you need some trunk space, then go with 2!

true, but that doesnt necesarily ncrease DB or even bass that much, more surface area is useless anyway if you keep same watts all together, you'd need to double watts to get a increase from double cone size, personally, i'd go with 2 12s, prolly most common size, and alot of good brands for 12s

Nice call bro...I would always recommend competition subs over anything else. IMO one high quality competition sub powered off a big amp (1000watt plus) will completely eclipse any number of lesser quality subs powered off whichever amps. If you can buy 2,3,4 shit subs for $500 or one top notch competition sub for $500...no question. I cannot count the number of cars that I have hopped into with multiple shit sub setups and been sadly disappointed. I would not buy a Type X personally, I think there are better subs out there, but still going to pump quite nicely :)
