    componet set

    What kind of componet set would you guys suggest for 2 15" L7's? I have around $300 for them and was looking for a two way set. I want somethin that with both 15's hitting hard i will be able to hear still. I want to be able to hear the treble just like the bass if u know what i mean not just all bass?

    Re: componet set

    pfft thats not happening -- hate to break it to you but you would have to spend thousands to get that kinda SPL for the mids/highs... and it would be a HELL of an install... you can get into the 120dB arena at that price but not in the 140+... Just lettin ya know Granted to your ears 140dB bass sounds just about like 120dB mid/trebble.... if thats good nuff for ya there are options -- or just as loud as possible with 300 bucks? Or goin for quality + almost as loud as possible for 300 bucks?

    Re: componet set

    i want good quality and very nice sound all around....I think i put that in the wrong way.. As a daily driver set up what would go nice with the two 15's? I was looking at the boston acoustic pro 6.5 series but i wanna order them online and at a resonable price

    Re: componet set

    BA Pro's can get very loud, and sound relatively good doing it....and they can also handle assloads of power.


    They are a great option. Just my word of recommendation.....don't skimp on power for them. They can handle about anything you can throw at them. 200w x 2 will just make them giggle. 300w+ per side and you'll see them really smile.

    I seriosly doubt he's that worried about SQ if he's running L7s. They aren't the most SQ oriented woofers on the market. So just get the loudest you can.

    i just had those side by side with some new zapco reference red cones and the boston z6's. the zapco just sounds so much better all the way around. they are both a very smooth sounding speaker. i just like the really punchy midbass of the zapcos. also with the z6's, they dont sound as good as either one of the others, but physically, they are louder.

    Re: componet set

    Yea i know l7's arent the best sq woofers but i still think the better you can hear the treble the better it is going to sound it would be point less to have something i could only hear with the l7's at low volume. So i just need something that when i put it up loud enough to compete with the bass that will not sound like static and all distorted. Thanks for all the help by the way.

    ... well if you could afford more money... and install them properly... there are some sets that would get you up to ~ 97dB/w/m and you can throw 200 watts at them no problem... you do the math... would need dual 5s per side though and a ribbon tweeter and cost... 2x? or so more than your allocated budget... They would keep up with your subs though... It wouldn't surprise me to see 130dB at the driver's seat on transients from the mids/highs alone...

    The Boston acoustic Pros are about *as good as you can do* in terms of loud and still sound good in your budget... There are some PG sets that are about $100ish that would do the job OK as well... If you would trade a few dB for sound quality... there are some Ology Audio sets that would do the job just fine -- mine get loud enough you can feel your hearing drift away... pros get louder -- and those other sets I first mentioned... heh... ouch

    I was hitting a 156.4 and had all the mb quart 6 1/2" componets up front. Mind you they were the pricy ones but sounded like a concert. Great componets!
