I am new to this forum and i was looking for some good advice on getting some new 12's around the 1000watt range for the pair and under $400 for a pair. but i also want the best sound quality i can get for the buck. right now i have a pair of kicker vr comp 12's which sound good but have had the for over 2 years now and they are starting to show their age. i have already had to solder the voice coil wires to the the terminals twice. so i think it is time to let go. i have a 2.0 cube box with the square port in center powered by a us acoustic 1250rms x1 amp at 1ohm. my gains are set at les than half so i figure i would upgrade and get a speaker that can use everything this amp can put out. but i don't care about being the loudest on the block. i want it to hit hard but sound clean and i want the bass to hit the basement lows. i am not trying to change boxes or amps cause i love my set up i just don't know how long the solder will hold on them kickers this time. its time for new subs.
