I need to make my last system purchase - a subwoofer. Here are the requirements:

- Polk or Exile only. This two brands are the ONLY choice, period, end of story. My in-boats and amps are Polk, my towers are Exile, and my source units stuff is all Alpine. I don't want to add another brand to the mix. What I am saying is I don't care how well priced or performing some JL, Rockford, Wetsounds, etc. subs are...my ONLY choice is between Polk and Exile.

- 12" sub. Needs to be 2 or 4 OHM DVC ONLY.

- Needs to be a good match to my amp; the sub side of a Polk D5000.5. It puts out 400 watts RMS @ 2ohm and 500 RMS @ 1ohm.

- I have to have a speaker grill. I guarantee my wife or someone else will put a hole in the surround without it.

Here are the four speakers I have come up with:

Polk MM1240DVC: $167.09 with Grill

Exile S12 DVC: $150 shipped + ??? for a grill (if there is one that will work with it)

Exile SX12D: $160 shipped + ??? for a grill (if there is one that will work with it)

Exile XI12 DVC: $280 shipped and comes with a grill

There are lower end subs Polk sells but I have no interest. The XI12 is on the top of my list for looks, but on the bottom otherwise as my amp will likely underpower it and it is a good $100 more than the rest. I have no clue what the difference between the S and SX subs are.

Regardless of what I pick, it will be going into a fairly generic ported box - if it works great I will keep it, otherwise I will build a custom box for the sub next fall/winter. I guarantee it will work better than what I am replacing and I got the box for a steal so I can sell it for a profit after this season.
