    Poll for Heyman421s benifit, please vote.

    Heyman421 and I have been having a disagreement in Talon2nr7588's post for a amp and I feel Like I am depriving him, also Heyman wont listen to me, so I am putting it to poll. As my sig. says he thinks 10" and 12" L7s do better in SPL then a 15" L7, assuming boxes built to Kicker spec and running the rater RMS wattage to each, which do you think is louder for equal amounts of subs (I.E. 2 10" vs. 2 12" vs. 2 15")

    Enjoy, gentlemen.



    My comment is in darkfox's sig. I clearly said SPL, not which is "louder"

    L7 12's will get better numbers, day and night.

    ok, you want us to go off what people are saying in another form that only have 60 and 41 posts respectiveley, also, the person thinks solo X is only made in 10 and 12 when there are clearly 15 and 18 also. Like I said, you are just basing what you "Know" off what other people say. you sir have been missinformed and really need to go out to some manufacturers webpages and do some research for yourself. I do not mean to be a jerk to you, but you need to learn alot more about systems.

    Also, do you really think if I changed the wording on the top to be SPL and not louder that there will be a difference in the answers?

    this is one retarded thread... and heyman fits this thread perfectly.

    more SPL does not mean louder? wtf?

    same model 12" will get higher numbers than the same model 15"? wtf?

    can you really gain SPL w/o getting "louder"?


    what's going on here.

    Well, crap. Someone better let this 40-post N00B know that they're wrong. >>>>



    But ya, you're right. Who cares what noobs have to say, anyways. They're probably just kicker-bashing.

    I kinda missed the address bar that time.

    Yes.

    Percieved loudness, and higher measured volume on a microphone can be VERY different things.

    That does NOT mean that 12's will be louder than 15's

    Sorry that was my bad on the SoloX 15. I admit it. They do make the 18 though. My fault for assuming if they make a 12 and a 18 that there would also be 15.
