    2 12" Kicker L7, or 1 Fi BL 12"/15"?

    I have a Kicker L7(2006 model) in a Kicker Ported Box, and a Hifonics bx1205d amp.

    I want something a lot louder, the sub right now get's pretty loud and rattles some things, but I want it to be able to get insanley loud when i want it to!

    should I just buy another L7, and get a new amp?

    or

    should I get the Fi BL? 12", or 15"?

    and what amp should i get for both?

    how many watts is too much for the L7's? i'm running 900 watts to this single one, so should i get a 2000 watt amp and run 1000 watts to each?

    I want a Hifonics amp too, because they're good and cheaper than most like Kicker.

    2 L7's with 2000 watts should be a lot louder then one Fi with 900 watts

    Re: 2 12" Kicker L7, or 1 Fi BL 12"/15"?

    well if i got the BL, i was planning on running 1500 - 2000 watts.

    it's just hard to sell the L7 i have right now and the amp for $600, it's brand new, but if i must, i would just buy another L7 and sell the amp and buy a new amp. so 2 L7's and another amp. would a 2000 watt amp be too much for 2 L7's? running them at a guess 1000 watts per sub, the rms on an L7 is 750 watts...

    you'll be fine

    the L7's are capable spl woofers, and 2 of them given double the cone area, should have more output then the fi

    1000 watts to each sub is good?

    or would one 12" or 15" be just as loud with 2000 watts?

    Re: 2 12" Kicker L7, or 1 Fi BL 12"/15"?

    i just got the reply from iceteebone

    and sounds like what i'm hearing is i should just pick up another L7 and build a box for both. How can i get the plans drawn up? or find some online. my jeep has 30 cu ft available, but i want to save as much room as possible because i have a full stack guitar amp that i need to carry around because i'm in a band.

    and what amp should i run to the 2 subs?

    what hifonics amp is capable of running 1000 watts to each sub?

    as for box plans you can visit www.caraudiojunkyard.com and ask one of the enclosure designers there

    Re: 2 12" Kicker L7, or 1 Fi BL 12"/15"?

    could i run the Hifonics bx1205d amp i have right now with the 2 L7's.

    i'm confused with it. my sub is 2 ohms, and so the amp gives it 900 watts.

    if i ran another 2 ohm L7, would it give 900 watts to both subs? meaning 1800 watts each?

    i read something about bridging the amp or something, i'm lost! help please!

    i meant 1800 watts total(both subs together), not 1800 each sub.

    That amp is only a single channel so no you cannot bridge it... If you had two subs they would probably get 500 watts each under a 1 ohm load.... Seeing as how you have a 2ohm sub it'd be hard to get another 2ohm sub and get much power out of that amp. You could only run it at .5ohms or 4ohms. Get a bxi2006 and itd push the subs a little better.
