    Elemental Design subs any good?

    I've searched on Google and really can't find much on them. Also, I can't find any pictures of the subs online. I've heard of this brand but are they any good? I have a 12" Kicker L7 with no box just sitting around and someone wants to trade it for 2 12" Elemental Designs in a box. I'd like to hear them but idk how they are.

    The subs have a lower case green "e" on the cone. There were some posts on here about these subs but not the specific model. Idk, I'm just curious since I haven't heard much about this brand and don't want to make a bad deal.


    I think I found the model it may be.... E-K12D2

    well i mean, it's an '11 L7 and i got 2 for $70 so i wouldn't be out much. he's throwing in a small jl amp too. i was just wondering what you all thought of that brand. i heard that the soft parts are sort of weak?

    The only one I've seen was at a fleamarket and it was less then impressive looking stamped steel basket and softparts and build quality comparable to boss,pyle etc.

    well I'm sure they made many models and like I said I have only seen one, but you said you got two kickers for 70 so in your case your spending 35 bucks for two twelves a box and a jl amp doesn't sound like a bad deal when you think of it that way you could keep the amp and CL the subs if you don't like them.

    If you're not going to use the L7 go for it because if you don't like it you post it on craigslist & still come out on top lol. Just make sure their gear works before you trade.
