Concerns we all share.

I wish I had a sub that was easy to carry, hit 10 dB over reference with extension to the single digits, and was easy to hide in the room.

Simulations are only one portion of the answer. 1 vs. 2 cabinets, total volume, the footprints and how things fit into the room are also important.

The Alpine Type-R (SWR) is a decent choice, but may have a bit too much motor. As far as motor amount? Generally, I look for the ratio BL^2/Re/Sd to come in around 0.15 to 0.2 for use in tapped...
