    (2) L7 15's VS. ???

    i have 2 concept 2400's (about 2000 rms each at 1 ohm) that i had originally intended to use on two L7 15's. well i have scared myself away from giving the L7s their peak power but yet i paid for the amps so i want to use them to there full potential. i am looking for Spl in a daily driver (so it cant sound like **** either). so i was wondering if antbody had any suggestions on any 15's that will get louder than the L7's with 4000 watts tuned to like 36-38. i would like to stay some where in the same price range also (might be able to pull together like $6-$700 if its really worth it). i dont want jl, adiobahn or, power acoustic so they are out of the question. has any body used the pg ti elite? or that huge pioneer?. i would go with different sizes as long as i wouldnt need a bigger encloser and it would stay within my price range.
    throw some ideas or suggestions at me

    i would have to say two XXX 15"s. you should be able to put up some decent numbers with two of them. prob like 147-150 with a good install.

    thats the same thing i was going to suggest. port your boxes and tune them maybe around 35 or 40 wherever works for you... you should easily be able to get that high of a dB probably higher. but if you have 7 or 8 hundred you should be able to afford 2 xxx 15"s which with 2000 watts each would be awesome

    yeah i got a 200 amp alt, upgraded the "big 3" to 0 guage, and i have a red top under the hood. i will probably toss a yellow in the trunk when i install also. is there anything else that would help out?

    I would go with either 2 XXX 15's or 2 DD9515's. Give them about 5-6cuft ported per sub. 2000watts should be quite nice for either. I would say that setup would do more in the 155db range (lin x), maybe even more if you had about 200-300watts more per sub

    2 XXX 15's will cost you about $880, but it is worth it, trust me

    for everyday, 2000 watts per sub is a bit excessive. 1200-1500 would get the job done
