    Kenwood DB's are LOUD. its hard to say why yours dont hit as hard, but as far as SPL the Kenwood is a louder woofer if im not mistaken... the JL's can probably be just as loud, but remember its all in the install. . . theres alot of factors that can cause that if subs are evenly matched and too many angles to start listing them from,

    You'll need to give us what amps you guys are using, what cars, what kinds and sizes of boxes(sealed/ported/vented), and whether either of you have used any sound deadening or anything in the trunk. That would be a good start.



    I'm never wrong, EVER! Just ask me.

    those are the kenwood tornadoes.. they ****
    do this.

    put your subs and his subs, in the same box, with the same, amp, same HeadUnit, same everything, same car too, then go get the set ups metered.....
    everytihing is constant except what subs are used

    dont use your ears to determine whos is louder



    i decided not to have a signature

    then just unhook his subs/box and throw your subs/box into his setup in his car. It won't be exact because of different boxes but it will give you a better read then what you are doing now in completely different setups.
