    space is unlimited, back of big suv. what is everyones opinion?... I want SPL! i know alot of people will prob hate on the Kickers, but iv been outa the game for awhile lol idk much about the smaller name brands, that i hear are "alot better" then kicker etc.. I know L7s get low and hit hard as hell, so how do DC Level 3s compare!? Thanks guys

    Well, the dc level 3 will sound much better than the l7's. Id go with the level 3's and they dont require a lot of air space like the l7s do to get loud. Why not go with the level 4s?

    I honestly think the l7s might get louder, especially if you dont plan to tune all that low. That said, the lvl3 is a decent sounding sub with respectable output ability. If I only cared for peak spl, Id do the kickers

    My buddies got 2 15inch l7 in a nice 12 cubic ft box tuned to 35hz on a 2011 zx2500 with 2 d3100 batts in the rear and a s3400 upfront with a dc 270 amp alt let me tell you that i only hit 1 db louder with 2 18 dc xl on that same zx2500......but then I put the dc's on a 12k and put those little kickers to shame
