    Help me get the most out of my kicker L5

    Im running a 12" kicker L5 and I expected it to hit harder and sound cleaner than it does...

    I've got it in a kicker L5 box (apparently built to the subs specs right?) and its running off a Tsunami 1100db...

    so Tsunami says a 2ohm load gets roughly 600rms. What frequency should the crossover be do you think? How much power should it really get? Are Tsunami garbage sounding amps?

    I listen to various types of ROCK music mostly....

    what's the tuning on the box, and is it a dual 4 ohm woofer?
