    Sounds like a win-win to me... Dealer gets to thin out some inventory (it's pricey to carry stock on every SKU Kicker offers) and Walmart gets to offer something better than their current line-up (effectively becoming the top-tier segment).
    I agree, sounds like a good move.

    still a big discount. 3 months ago the zx2500 was 1400 new and ebay stores had it for under 400 new.

Before tuning I was burping a 147. So on 12k, a 155 isnt too impressive when ive seen people running under 12k busting 160's. Fully sealed BTW

    where in ny are you? id like some proof that you have this. never seen or heard of it in the state. for the price that those cost id be throwing up bigger numbers on that kind of power or less. a guy i know is doing 57s off 2 dd 9915s on a lanzar opti. i had 2 solo x 12s. ive had better. from experience with them i would price them at 300 to 350 new.

    I'd take my 2x 12inch American Bass HD's sitting in my garage for next year over those solo x's all day long if you wanna go that route and those would hit 155 on 5k all day and the HD's also cost less than the solo x's.

    id take a solo x for the sole purpose of reselling it. and wouldnt pay over 300 for a solo x 18 or 200 for a 12.
