    Which sub/amp combo is better?

    I am upgrading my system from my comps. Which package should i get? A setup with 4 JL 8w7 with JL 1000/1 amp for 700? Or 2 2007 Model Kicker 12inch L7 with JL 1000/1 amp for 500?
    Suggest any other amps, better for the price with these subs?
    Its going into a Ford Ranger Ext Cab.
    Thanks for the help

    go with the JL setup, then sell it all back and get something cheaper and save some money.

    Or better yet, just buy the JL amp and sell it back and get a better amp to power the Kicker, or whatever subs you may get after doing some research around here.

    you'd be happier with re sx's rather than L7's trust me on this,but then you would need a 2000-3000 w rms amp

    if you insist on L7's,then go with the cvx's,they will get allmost as loud as the 7's but will sound better....you can get them for bout $139 a piece

    Re: Which sub/amp combo is better?

    I have yet to meet a L5 or L7 that I liked. I went through THREE different enclosures with my 12" L5 before I finally decided it ****** and no amount of tinkering would get it to accurately reproduce bass! I liked it so much I sold it for $80 to one of my friends with all THREE enclosures.



    Goodbye pudknockers.
