    Which is the Better sub JL or Kicker Comp?

    What's up to all?

    A quick question for you all. I'm looking for 2 new subs to be set up on independent sealed boxes, the smallest possible. So far I've narrowed it down to 2 subs Kicker Comp 10" or JL Audio 10WOs both 125w rms each 8ohms for 4ohm load.

    Which would be best for my amp Sony 2150gsx 760w:

    Key Features:

    150 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    190 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
    380 watts x 1 in bridged mode
    stereo, bridged mono, or Tri-Way output
    MOSFET power supply and output stages
    50-300 Hz high-pass/low-pass filter, 12 dB/octave
    line-level and speaker-level inputs
    gold-plated connectors
    preamp outputs
    variable bass boost (0-10 dB) centered at 40 Hz
    requires 8-gauge power and ground leads

    Since you are looking for a relatively small enclosure, I would reccomend the JL firstly. They have always had better luck in the smaller enclosures. Should provide decent SQ and boom all at once.

    take it easy,

    smaller the box the better the jl will out perform the kicker....if you have about 2.5-3.5 cft the kickers get rich and boomy sounding (thats the kicker draw) but its sorta sloppy bass in my opinion
