    Wow 2 kicker L7 as a starter system? wanna go big all of a sudden i see? your gonna need a 1500 watt amp that can handle those subs. How will you build your box? sealed or ported? What kind of car is this being installed into?

    first thing that you need to know... amps really dont make subs sound nice... some of them are subjective to criticism more than others ....

    but bottom line is look for an amp that does 1500rms @ 1 ohm

    Yes 750+750=1500 that will be enough to bump plenty loud. Ported will increase output and make subs louder but for L7's you'll need a pretty big box for 2 12''s. Orion, Viper, Incriminator Audio, Directed, Alpine, Rockford Fosgate, Kicker, JL Audio all make good amps. Look at their RMS rating not peak rating. If your not going to have enough room to port 2 12's look into getting 1 15'' ported. Most people on here believe the L7's sound best ported. Talk to Polecat about Kicker stuff he'll help you alot.



    My Setup:
    Headunit-Alpine 9847
    Front Speakers- Rockford Fosgate Power 6 1/2's
    Rear Speakers- Alpine Type S 6x9's
    Speaker Amp- Kenwood KAC-8402
    Sub- Alpine Type R 12''
    Sub Amp-Kenwood KAC-9152D

    wow, do your homework first...search around. really delve into and study this stuff.

    i did and i installed my first system w/o any help from any forums/shops. it took me a while, but i did it and saved sooooo much $$$ in the process.

    of course this is just if you want to become a do-it-yourselfer. it is a fun and rewarding hobbie.
