    2 12 kicker cvrs vs 1 15 or 1 12?

    I currently have 2 12 kicker cvrs in a vented box on a hifonics hfi 1000.1d amp, 4 ohm load. Im wanting to get something that will hit a little deeper and lower. I don't really want to go over a 200-240 dollar limit on a 15 or higher end 12, Its in the back of a 02 hyundai sonata, mainly listen to rap. Any options? Or should I wait and upgrade later? Thanks.

    as far as i am concerned type r's and sundowns sa series are pretty close to equals.... I would go with the sundown though if I had a choice between the two.

    Yeah. I was looking at the Fi SSD 15, Its 1000w rms, and 204, No matter the sub its going in a ported box.

    Would it get pretty loud and low ported?

    I can make it hit very low, just like my Fi's.

    I'm really leaning towards it unless I find something else. How would it compare to my cvrs?

    Just 1 15 would beat them in spl? I was going to get 2 of the 12/15 x's but they got discontinued.

    Re: 2 12 kicker cvrs vs 1 15 or 1 12?

    Firstly, why are u wired to a 4 ohm load? Why not 1 ohm? You'll get more power from your amp that way and the CVRs might do what u want?

    Did anyone even pay attention to that part or just saw Kicker and said "we must get him some Sundown and Fi so he'll be cool".

    Any specs on the box? What's it tuned to? Proper airspace?

    These are all things that greatly affect your bass OP
