15" speakers for heavy, low-tuned music?

    I have a Sunn 215 that needs to be loaded. I usually play heavy fuzz rock and doom metal, tuned as low as two whole steps down. In the future I'd like to do some stuff in A or G.

    What 15" speakers would you recommend for this application? I like JBLs and Eminence so far. Just hard to decide which model.

    Used to have Peavey Black Widows in my 2x15 cab. Great speakers.

    speakers should be matched with the cab. You can measure dimensions and use WinISD to figure out what speakers would give you a good frequency response. This matters way more than the genre of music.

    +1. That being said, I've always had great luck with Eminence, been using them in cabs for about 15 years now. I have beta 12s in a 4x12 right now and it is thunderous.
