Thumbs up Subwoofer sizes

I got an extended cab, and i found a couple of subs that i am really into and was wondering what would be best. I can get a 12 or a 15 for $10 difference between them (the 12 is 180 and the 15 is 190). But is it worth it to get the next size up? Or would it sounds the exact same?

I love my 12" Audioque. What sub are you looking at getting?

It depends on what you listen to. Mostly rap? Go with the 15...mostly rock go with the 12....My bro hates rap and everytime he rides in my truck he whines until I turn the bass almost all the way down because he bitches that its too much bass for rock....I have 2 15"s...

Get the 12". The 12" HDC3 and the 15" HDC3 have the same motor/suspension. The 15" is going to require a larger box and that's why I went with the 12" so I didn't have to have an even bigger box.
