    I would personally go with the 3xls.

    A little higher powerhandeling and they aren't square!

    I'd do the L7's. Powerbass doesn't have a great rep around here.

    I say flip a coin in loudness while playing music, PB's might sound a little better! For burps/competeing I have to give the edge to L7's especially w/ more power , they have proven to take 1500+watts, time and time again.

    my 2 cents

    Thanks Tracy.

    I love several of your products but I have had bad luck with L7s and good luck with the 10+ 3XLs I've been around.

    there are a ton of different meters, and ways and places to meter a car. But if that was a termlab, at the headrest, that is an awesome score.
