    Rockford Alpine or Kicker?

    Im trying to decide which subs I should get next.
    The three im trying to decide between are (all 10")
    1. Rockford P3-10D2
    2. Alpine SWS-10d2
    3. Kicker CVR d2

    I want a good balance between spl and sql as theyre just for street thumping. Ill run them in a ported box. I essentially want the louder and better quality one.

    thanks

    I had a 12 inch Rockford P3 before, it was decent. It likes a medium-sized ported box tuned to about 35Hz.

    Re: Rockford Alpine or Kicker?

    I have a Kicker CVT10 in my truck because of the mounting depth restrictions and it sounds pretty good for a single 10" with a very small sealed enclosure.

    I can't comment on the others your considering but Kicker seems to be a decent product although I'm sure there is way higher end stuff than that for way more $.

    Much better can be had for less, not way more.

    Sundown E series for example.

    edit:as @itsblown suggested,

    (2) DC-Level 3's
    Kicker ZX2500.1

    Re: Rockford Alpine or Kicker?

    I'm putting them in my jeep liberty. I want to put them in ported box I have now. It's 1.25 cubes per chamber. I'm trying run 1000w rms. 1200 if I have to. I'm only gonna do big three. And then as for the amp ill get a mb quart onyx 1500.1 or hifonics Brutus 1700.1. And run at 2 ohms.

    What about even sd2 or sa for that matter. How much of a difference are they? Could they be run at 1000rms?

    ok. since they call the sd2 the same thing just with less mount depth could it take it? and would i be ok even putting two E's on 500 each even though theyre rated for 400 each. id do this at 2 ohms.

    yes the e's will take an extra 100 watts rms lol, only reason I didnt recomend the sa-12s is because they are more expensive then the woofers you listed.
