    What do you think?

    I just purchased these 2 subs and someone has me second-guessing. Can someone give me input on what they think of these 2 Kicker Comp 10s? And what kind of amp should I power these with?

    well, they are single 4 ohm so you need an amp that does 300 rms at 2 ohms

    an aq750 would power them quite nicely at 2 ohm.

    but... whats your budget.

    Re: What do you think?

    But are they good subs to start me off with? I know nothing about Kicker subs. I'm replacing my (1) MTX Thunder 3000 with these because I was not happy with the sound quality or power from the MTX which I got from a friend.

    if your wanting sound quality you got the wrong subs. but the aq750 comes in just over 200 shipped.

    Avoid Kicker subs if you want sound quality.

    What kind of box was the mtx in? I have played with the Road Thunders (older model w/red basket), Thunder 5500s, Thunder 6000s, Thunder 7500s and Thunder 9500s and sq was pretty decent on all of them except the road thunders.

    Re: What do you think?

    Well the MTX 3000 was the cheapest of the MTX brand, and I had this one in a custom box built to spec and it just didnt hit hard nor sound even decent. I looked up the Kicker Comps that I bought and ppl are saying they hit fairly hard and sound good, and efficient... So idk. Obviously I dont have them installed yet but when I do, if I dont like them I can always upgrade. i'm fairly new to car audio and the only reason I got Kicker was because a friend suggested them and they were on sale lol.

    I can buy one brand new for that price, and it's discontinued.

    Re: What do you think?

    They arent high end subs, and perhaps could have been money better spent. But you still have potential.

    Put them in a good box and I am willing to bet my bottom dollar they will surprise you. Lucky for you, I just so happen to do enclosure designs
