Alright, so i've read the flaming, i've read the reviews, ive heard people swear by one thing or another, and condemn each other to eternal suffering and pain over differing opinions. From this, I have narrowed down my sub choice to one of the above 3. Voteth ye!

Enclosure: 1.5 cu ft sealed fiberglass box (fitted for trunk side, stealth-install style). cutout for 12"
Power: JL Audio HD 750/1
Focus: SQ >>>> SPL
Uses: Bass and beat heavy music - metal, trance, techo, raggae, hip hop, rap, dubstep, grime and any other name you've got for something that gets low and grimy and fast.

Price difference for the above 3 options is not a consideration.

Ok so I dont quite get if your focus is SQ or SPL.

But if its SQ, then I cant emphasize how good the Morel Ultimo is.

I have an Ultimo 12 that is the best thing Ive ever heard.

1.5 cubes is good for it. However its rated for more than 750 watts. But
I have a Zapco 9.0 to it and I cant even turn that amp up over half way so your
proabably fine.

I had 4 Focal 5ws subwoofers (5.25" diameter) and they were very musical and very
accurate though not that loud, a few years later switched to the Ultimo, and wow.
More than loud enough for DD listening, though you cant hear it outside of my car really. But it screams inside and is just as accurate as those 5.25's oh, and I can hear it down to 24 hz though -6db is probably 30 hz.

There are 2 lines the Ultimo and the Ultimo SC, I havent heard much about the SC but it should still do damn well. I think the cone is different and the basket is stamped, not cast. Look on for all the specs.
Its all about how you set up the Morel, it can blend in to the point where its not even there, or it can overshadow your highs if you dont the the right front stage!

Ive never seen the Shiva, I'll google it.
