    Two 12 in. Kicker Comp VRs or one decent 15?

    What up caraudio.com? Right now I have one Dual 2 ohm12 in. Comp Vr in a small ported box inside a Ford Explorer. I have this running off a Power Acoustik LT980/2 bridged. This sounds pretty decent but I want more, my question is would 2 Comp VRs in a ported box give me better results or should I upgrade to one 15 in a ported box? Whatever I get will be running off the same amp I am already using. Oh yeah the amp is rated at 560 watts @ 4 ohms bridged and 220Wx2 at 4 ohms. Appreciate the help.

    Thanks for the input, it seems like I should upgrade to one 15 so I think that's what I'm going to do.

    what other woofers are better in "that price range" because the only one i can think of is the type r and its about 30 to 40 dollars more.

    Re: Two 12 in. Kicker Comp VRs or one decent 15?

    i've got 1 15" CVR w/ a 1000watt mono amp going to it in the back of my little camry... it beats, but not how i want it to...
    i want the car next to me to be able to feel the bass, and it just doesnt do it.. i hooked it all up though myself, so i may not have it hooked to it's full potential. was talking to someone else and he said i should get ported box, so going to try that..
