    BETTER SUB?? RE Audio Se12 or Kicker l712

    Im stuck at a crossroads here. Figure id ask the experts for a little guidance. I have 2 amps and am trying to decide on which amp to use and the subs (i still have to purchase)do you think would be the best option. This is a daily driver set up and im looking for decent sound quality while still scaring old women and children. This will be in a ported enclosure tuned to 35hz probably (unless someone convinces me otherwise) in the back of a dodge magnum.

    I have:
    -soundstream trx 1500 (1100 x 1 @ 2ohm)
    (800 x 1 @ 4 ohms)

    -and powerbass ASA 2200.1d (1100 x 1@ 2ohms)
    (550 x 1 @ 4ohms)

    I need to decide between:
    2-RE Audio SE12 or
    2-Kicker Slo Baric L7 12

    I was going with the kicker, but have recently heard so much about RE Audio after joining this forum, my choice may have been swayed. Also which amp would u choose for either sub. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    i would normally say RE but the L7 can handle more... the RE would definately have better SQ.... i personally would go with the REs

    I don't know too much about re, but I can tell you to get the L7 sounding good while getting loud takes trial and error.

    If you afford the extra cash get the SX rather then the SE. Ive seen both and personally I think the SX's look better.

    Ether way, kicker will always take second compared to RE.

    from a SE to a SX?

    Do yourself a favor and get the re's.

    You wont be disapointed. 2 12 SE's on ~1500 should be the ceiling of what anybody needs for daily.

    I had 2 se's on 2200 and it hit 144db SEALED
