    l7 question

    1 12" L7
    or
    2 12" CVRs

    - 3 cubes max (port and driver displacement must be subtracted from 3)
    - 600rms
    - tuned to 32Hz or whatever is the highest i can go without a SSF
    - only rap/hiphop
    - girlfriend listens to other crap, but thats not very important, only somewhat

    SPL over SQ, 70/30

    so.. which will get louder?

    Re: l7 question

    I would say the cvrs because of the cone area advantage.

    Re: l7 question

    L7s are loud, but not louder than that with the power and disadvantage of cone area

    Re: l7 question

    i dunno they are overrated if u ask me. they pound yes with the correct power but if u are going with 600rms then go with the CVR's since the L7 needs 750- 1500 to get it going.

    Re: l7 question

    this is comparing 2 CVR's with 1 L7

    thanks guys.



    orphe, what exactly do you mean?

    L7's are very very very effective at getting loud, they are excellent for spl,
    their SQ is questionable, most people hate their SQ and say it *****, however in the right box they too can sound good.

    Re: l7 question

    i personally would go with the single driver. i've owned both (2 cvrs and 1 L7 12) and i thought the L7 did much better. i was running 800 RMS though.

    the L7 is a good driver. you should be happy with it

    I heard L7's are not worth the price. but that was someones opinion at the local shop. I think he was compairing them to Memphis or JL's but cant quite remember

    Re: l7 question

    I've heard many kicker systems from the old solobarics to the new l5/l7's and I think the subs are great for what they cost. I don't know which would be louder though out of the two you are choosing from.
