Ordering everything now. Just got the ZX2500.1 amp. Looking for a Solo X 12 sub. ZX650.4 for the mids and highs. Kicker Mids and highs components, 6x9's, tweets. Wiring is Kicker PKD1. Everything kicker. My friend has this install in his civic, which makes me want to do the same thing. Imagine all this in a clean beautiful setup. DAAYUUMM!!!

People on this forum are not fans of kicker, especially to that degree.

Expect to hear a bunch of bullshit. Personally i like kicker, but that setup is a bit over the top.

Maybe not all kicker, but amps definitely.

Well, the sub is decent but much better can be had for less. As for the speakers, they're not that good at all. But as long as it makes you happy, then it's all good.

i bet most people on this forum havent heard a good install of kicker. can be the reason why they dont like it. i mean kicker is expensive though. bnib zx2500 cost @ than 1000. solo x @ 700-800.

Kicker subs can get loud but like I said, much better can be had for a lot less. For $1700-1800, I could of got a much better amp and sub. I didnt even spend that much for my sundown saz-3500 and two 12" audioque hdc4's.

which is why alot of people dont like them.

for $1k you can get a 6-7kw amp and for 700-800 you can get 2 subs that will take 3kw all day long.

Where are you shopping? $600 for a brand new 2011 ZX2500. If you pay that much for a Solo X I got some stuff for sale

Yeah I don't think its as much a hatred for the equipment as it is the overpricing.

Solid amps and sub for sure, terrifically over-priced though. Speakers are mediocre. More pics though! That looks like some great install work.

just like what everyone is saying: overpriced. Like most "mainstream" car audio gear. For the money, you cant get nearly as much with kicker as you could with lesser known companies

yeah. cant lie..they are pricey, but they sure are of super high quality. never heard of a kicker amp blow or something. so its well worth it.

if its super high quality run it below what its rated see if it lasts . my aq gives me almost 5k @.5 for 800 brand new takes it all day just sayin kicker is alot of $$$ and over rated.

For $1200 you can get a 10k Kicker amp...point being?

OP, if your boy has that X sealed, tell him to kill himself. The X is made to get loud, and it was designed to do so in a ported enclosure.

I'm not going to defend Kicker in this thread as I so vehemently have in the past, but let's put your AQ on an O-scope and RTA at .5 and see what kind of THD we are seeing. I bet my horse looks tons better at way more power for just a couple hundred bucks. Looking at the SX and WX series of Kicker amps, you pay for DSP. One of the better ones in the business. Yes there are amps that put out more power for the dollar. No there isn't a brand putting out a better signal.

All I'm saying is that much of the hate is baseless. JL is one hell of an SQ sub, unfortunately stupid people think they are loud. The retail is insane. They can be had at proper values resale. Same with Kicker except for SPL. Both campanies' amps are some of the best in the business (if purchased at a proper price, and not MSRP).

Ported bro! port is in the back. Big *** port. That **** gets loud at Volume 1 of the HU! the HU can go up to 62 and at vol 3 you can hear it coming from 100 meters away.

If you are not trolling and I hope you are you need to look at some of the setups on here. Saying he is a dealer makes him a idiot right off the bat

I tried to help back you up, and you spout this. How loud it is at a certain volume is no measure for how loud the system actually is. Typically, when subs are stupid loud well before clipping on the deck the gain is set way too high or there is tons of boost on the amp. Neither are proper. I had mine setup that way for a while, but now the subs actually escalate cohesively with the mids. At full tilt the mids keep up with the subs, but you won't see straight nor be able to breathe.
