    Icon31 kicker or rockford???

    im just curious....would a 12" kicker L7 or a rockford PUNCH hx2 be louder?
    i would run about 800 watts rms to either, and have it in a ported box....about 2 cu ft. tuned to around 35hz...
    i would want LOUD LOUD LOUD!!!....which of these would do the job better?
    i want to be able shake windows, set off car alarms and be heard coming down the road from a mile away(not that far..but u get the picture)...i wouldnt do this all the time...but i would be happy knowing i could if i wanted to....so anyone give me some advice and suggestions on which would be louder....by the way..id like some sq, but not that much...its not as important as spl

    the rockfords are good subs, but for you application, i would more lieklly go towards the kickers... they ahe been known to rattle a few homes....
    also, teh real rockfords you would want for taht application is the "POWER" series lol.
    they hit like bad muddahs... lol.,
    althought the new punch subs hit pretty hard, ia hve also heard that they can sound very poor in the wrond enclosure...
    the biggest thing, is to go into local shops and hear tehm for youself....

    It all depends on a bunch of things. Like box, if its sealed or ported, power u give it, but i would say the Kicker L7 over the Hx2,but if u get the power Hx2 then it will **** the L7 up big time

    if you want to be heard further away...go with a 15''...they produce lower frequencies of bass which travels a lot further...

    why do you say the power hx2's are louder? to me compared to "loud" woofers the rockfords are rather mellow....dont get me wrong its got a powerful sound and pushes alot of air...

    It may not have had enough wattage on it.. the Power HX2's are horribly inefficient, and will soak up 1k-1.5k without a problem...

    I'd have to go the kicker route for sure.. increase in cone area, increase in efficiency = increase in output...

    i alwas thought that rockford power woofers were more like a harley davidson than a true "goer" they rumble alot sound huge then u meter them its kinda weak also norris's numbers went down after the switch he always ran huge rockford systems in the past and looked more impressive than they metered..not doggin him but i have history on my side on this...he is VERY capable. so i blame the equipment lol

    I think the Kickers could take the Hx2's but i dont know about the Power Hx2. It all comes down too power and size of the box. But overall i think the kicker would be louder
