    Icon7 Need advice on a good replacement for my 2 12"vr comp's for under $400 for a pair

    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.
    thanx

    Re: Need advice on a good replacement for my 2 12"vr comp's for under $400 for a pair

    the only other suggestion would be ED O's. But those will probly be a bit over 400 bucks. and u wouldnt be able to port them but u said u wanted best SQ for the bucks so im guessing u want sealed.
    Se's will do the job either wway though, nothing but great subs. U ccould also go for a 12" XXX...



    Upcoming SQ competition ready install...
    -Eclipse cd8053
    -Image Dynamics Cd1Pro MH
    -Image Dynamics 6.5" mids with CX motors and poly cone in custom fiberglass kick panels
    -12" Stereo Integrity Magnum in large sealed fiberglass wheel well enclosure.
    -Viper d1200.1 (sub), Viper 400.2 (mids), David Navone Amp-100 (horns)

    yeah i am looking for good sq but keeping in mind that i already have a dual ported box that has the square port. i also have a tight budget and i need two subs. I am a little new to the group and i don't understand what re, se, & eb stand for. i want my new sub to hit harder than the vr comps but sound good at the same time

    Re: Need advice on a good replacement for my 2 12"vr comp's for under $400 for a pair

    thanx for the suggestion are he any other options cuase i went to the web site and and most of them are for sealed boxes. I have a ported box. the one that was for a vented box is out of my price range cause i need two subs.
    I was thinking of trying some cerwin vega-Vega 124 12" subs. does any one know how good these subs are cause i was reading the specs and they are made for a vented box it even had specs for the box i have with the square port.
    please give ya'lls input. the sub are $84 each. is this a good buy, i mean the price sounds good to me.
