    Going cheap this time

    I have had the solo x 12 and the 18, a 13.5 jl w7, and some higher end rf subs since I have been building. I have been out of it for a lost a year now and I finally need some bass again! My question is, what do you guys think about running 6 kicker comp 15s instead of something like 1 solo x 18 again? Pros? Cons? Any input would be great!

    You won't need nearly as much power to have a loud daily system. On the other hand you will need a HUGE box.

    step away from the kicker. you can get a lot better for the money, and you can always go with a nice single or dual sub set up in the right box and be just as loud as the multiple comps

    Re: Going cheap this time

    budget is around 400 for subs, and i'm not sure whats going on amp-wise yet. I'm trying to get my sundown amp repaired, but my warranty situation is a little shaky right now. What do the ssd's cost? any links?
