    Need some opinions on new setup, ditching the R's

    I've had my 2 12" 06' alpine R's for awhile now and want to try something new.
    I'm running a viper1200.
    I really like the 2006 L7 15" and also like the SX 15 to run off same amp. Would this be much of an upgrade, or would I be wasting my time?

    I wouldn't use both of them at the same time, no...

    What's your budget?

    Re: Need some opinions on new setup, ditching the R's

    im sorry i think i worded that wrong. i meant to say i want to run the viper1200 amp, and i was looking at the 06 L7 15 and also looking at the SX 15. dont really have a budget open to all idears.

    didnt know if going from 2 medium 12's to 1 good 15 would be much of an upgrade. i just want to go louder, and it's going in the trunk of a 2000 bonneville.

    1 Diamond D9 15"/ JL W7 13.5 (SQL)
    1 Kicker L7 15" (SPL)
    and I might as well suggest the mag since someone else eventually will. But keep in mind 1200w is 1200w so unless you upgrade you amps the diff in sound will not be much.

    Wouldn't be much of an upgrade at all. The Rs are just as capable as the others.

    That is partly correct. 1200watts will only get so loud given the amount of space you have to work with and the efficiency of the drivers. But 1200watts to subs that are more efficient will get louder than when using less efficient subs.
