    Kicker CVR's: any good?

    Are the CVR's any good? I currently have 2 JBL GTO1004D subs. I would like to gain some space in my 4runner, and the 2 10's are to much bass. I am looking at running one 12 inch CVR pushed by my Fosgate 360a2 amp (tested at 580 watts). The quality of the JBL's suits me (although I havent heard anything else). I like the CVR's because I can pick them up locally. I am going to go tomorrow to listen to them at the local store if I can, just want to be prepared so I dont get a sales pitch. Thanks.

    Re: Kicker CVR's: any good?

    I am not sure what I am going after. I thought I wanted SQ, but the JBL's (which are SQ) arent exactly what I want. Again, for that reason, I would like to hear them before I buy. I will listen to them, I just know the people at the shop will say they are the best whether they are or not. Thanks everyone.

    Re: Kicker CVR's: any good?

    Main concern is durability. This will be in a sealed enclosure. As said, not sure if SQ is my thing, I will tell for sure when I listen to them tomorrow. Another thing, usually the store only has them in prefab ported enclosures. Would the sound be a lot different there vs. sealed? Once I hear these I will know more about what I want. Thanks.

    cover the port with something solid and see how it sounds. Keep whatever you use tight so not much air can escape!!

    People come, people go
    Some grow young, some grow cold
    I woke up in between
    A memory and a dream

    So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
    Let's head on down the road
    There's somewhere I gotta go
