Anyone familair with KIcker L7's? A friend bought a repo deckboat. It has 3 12" dual 2 ohm L7's mounted in the side of the boat, not under a bench seat to use as an enclosure. I pulled one L7 out and there is no encloure. I can fit about 3 grown bodies in this cavern where the subs are mounted. They are wired to 1.34 ohm to a 1 ohm stable amp putting out @2000w to them. Kicker recommends .88-2.00 for sealed encloure. Can someone recommend a more exact optimum enclosure size? *

Shoot for 3cu each if you have the room. Squares love the big boxes.

Putting an L7 in a sealed box is like buying a Corvette to drive to church and get groceries on the weekends. Tremendous waste of potential, even if that potential has the tendency to sound like the beer shits.

True, I told OP sealed specs, but if you really want the L7s to perform like they were designed: give them each 4.5cu in a ported box tuned to 34-36hz

I have heard the L7 in both sealed and ported boxes and like the sealed better. The ported ones I heard were way louded, but the sealed sounded better and more musical. Either way, around 3 cubed sealed is right
