    L3 vs L7 Big Difference?

    Hi guys. I was considering moving up to a 15" Kicker woofer and was eager to try the Solobaric, heard a lot of great things about them. Came across a good deal at speakerboom.com for an L3 for $165 and an L7 for $329. That's double the price. Is it really double the difference? I really don't think so but thought I'd ask. I have a JL 1000/1v2 and I'll probably put it in a sealed enclosure. I know the power difference is double, but I can always turn the gains up or down a bit. Anxious to get it, but just thought I'd ask. What do you think?

    Re: L3 vs L7 Big Difference?

    There are huge differences between the L3 and L7. However they are not worth the difference in price.

    Neither of those are a good value for the performance. You can get a better woofer/s for much less.

    whats your budget, what kind of vehicle do you have and what are you looking to achieve?

    Re: L3 vs L7 Big Difference?

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla. I already have 2-12" Kicker Comp Vr's and just wanted to get a deeper sound, not necessarily louder. Looked into the Rockford P3's as well. Looking to spend around $150 to $250. Speakerboom had the P3's for around $250. That might be a better choice.

    L7s will get loud.. whether they sound good has a lot to do with the enclosure.. everyone here is funny..

    Haven't really heard those. Are they made in the US? I know Kicker isn't, but they've been in the game awhile.

    Maybe u did not read OG post sealed box.. Would you say an l7 is made to be run sealed?? I did not think so.. So anti nothing I am against putting the wrong sub in a setup period. The Fi Q will just rape an l7 in a sealed box that's a fact. Not trying to be prickish sounding got bad news about my doors today so kinda pissed.

    You may be able to achieve your goal with a new box not subs. What are your current box specs



    bought from MBROOKY, johnny law.Lulz, subzero, tc3k101
    sold to mytrunkslamz , vitveet, cd6551, martiandancer31 (x2), pro-rabbit, whytellyou

    IIRC someone won a national/worldwide sq contest with a sealed L7 8. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I dont have a problem with mainstream companies, my problem with them stems the ridiculous prices they charge. I highly value the "bang for your buck" and the mainstream companies usually don't cut it in that selling feature.

    This. It doesnt matter what gear you use, a sealed box will only perform so well. Get a proper built ported box and if you still don't like how your subs sound, then upgrade them.
