I would go with 12's....with the money you save with 12's instead of 15's you could put towards an amp.

though if bass is your thing and you want to stand out and make sure people hear you get the 15's. I've had two 18's before lol, in a diff car though. i dont think i could ever go back to 12's, i will upgrade mine sooner or later.

12's should be fine. Lots of good quality 12's out there, ive seen 10's that hit really hard too . Make sure you get a good amp. Also with the 12's you would save some trunk space too.

I have 2 JL Audio 12's and am extremely happy with the way they sound. I agree with the consensus so far, get some good quality 12's and with the difference get a quality amp.

i think personally this is the most open ended question to ask. No Offense but there are soo many subs amps and boxes out there someone with the best equipment can make their system sound awfull because of a poorly designed box. I would say the best thing you could do is set a budget for yourself on each item and go from there. I have heard 8's 10's 12's 15's and 18's in every application they sound different. so i guess its a starting point if your trying to accomplish sq or spl. Sq run a sealed box spl run a huge ported box. I dont wanna reccomend subs soo many good ones but here are a few brands to check out digital designs, re audio, image dynamics, kicker, phoenix gold, jl, all good in different aspects. there are many more killer subs out there too

Honestly for a cleaner look and to maintain adequate trunk space-- you can go with either 2-8"s, 2-10"s or 2-12"s. There are tons of subs on the market these days, so have an idea of what you're willing to spend, whether you're looking for sound quality or just loudness. I know it's pretty easy to purchase an off the shelf prefabbed box but when you pick up your woofers you need to consider having a nice box built that will allow your subwoofers to excel. You will also need to pair up your subs with a good amplifier and of course wiring. Two 15"s in the back of a 300 is like putting 26"s on it...just doesn't look right...not to mention you will pretty much lose your trunk space. If you post what you are looking for in a subwoofer, specific sub size, RMS power you're looking to run and application(ported or sealed) I can help you out a little bit more. I can definitely put you in touch with a couple of excellent box builders as well.

I always liked the bass from 10" woofers just because i find it a bit "tighter" where with a bigger when it has the ability to go into a lower frequency, ive seen 10" with the right set up box, amp, etc, that bang really hard and you will have more trunk space which may not be a proirity now but its still nice to have the space you never know when you might needed provided you can get a 10" set that sounds good to you. You should shop around and do some more resarch speaker technology has come a long way in the last few years.

12's are easier given you'd have to something custom on the bottom
to fit the humps in the trunk if you do a box big enough to fit 15's.

All you really need is 1 hi quality 12". Im running a fosgate T212D2 (12", 2ohm DVC STAGE 2) wired down to 1ohm on a nice 1200w (audiobahn a1300HCT) amp and an enclosure built to manufacturer spec, and you are bangin my friend. Perfect mix of SQL/SPL, heard from many blocks away :)

The sub itself is 60lbs, and the enclosure is another 85lbs, so be ready for alot of extra weight in the car.
