    Looking for a upgrade!

    I have 2 12" kicker L5's on a zx1000.1 and i'm looking to upgrade. This is a daily driver and i'm just looking for some good recommendation because I don't want to upgrade and regret not going louder

    BTW: This is going in a 2008 VW Rabbit so space is #1

    Thanks!

    Re: Looking for a upgrade!

    Anything is better than kickers. DO you want to go SPL or SQ? How much $$$ are you working with. What gauge wire are you running now? Look into Fi, DC, DD, Audioque/Soundqubed. Stay away from Best Buy brands...

    Re: Looking for a upgrade!

    Those are the wrong subs for that car. You could get a huge improvement with the right box but you don't have the room unless you lose the back seat

    Re: Looking for a upgrade!

    Go with a pair of 10s. Also I would keep that amp unless you want to replace the alternator. 2 10s in the right box will shock you. Even on your power.

    Re: Looking for a upgrade!

    You're in a bit of a predicament. If you run that amp you need dual 2 subs. If you decide to add power later you're going to need $400-$500 in a larger alternator but also want a 1ohm amp. You could run .5 if you get a 270-300 amp alt and not worry about adding a battery to the back since its already tight. I would do a set of DD 3510s at dual 2 then after you can make the power run a DD M3 at .5 on them. See how far you are from pulse car audio. Those guys know what they are doing.
