    prepared to be flamed.....
    If you are gonna ask a ? that retarded(sorry, but it it)...than you prolly should be attempting either of those systems(at least not at the moment)


    You know what it takes to have an electrical system for that? Thats like 6k watts daily

    all about the install... but if you have a ton of room i would go with the xxx's because of the cone area advantage

    but good luck finding 4 18's or 4 motors

    lol...in reality with comparable set-ups the XXX's should own the l7's allday everyday. if i had 4 18" XXX's they would have at least 8,000 watts going to them.

    no its not. easy to accomplish if you have cash. And if i could afford to have 4 18" XXX's in my car then i could afford the cost of the electrical.

    I think you need to slow down before you get in over your head . Deadening, electrical, subs amps, adequate frontstage. You better have tons of time, knowledge, and $.
