    will upgrading to bigger sub increase db?

    I have a kicker solobaric L7 10" in a ported box. It's the same as the link below but 10" version. If I get the 12" version, will I get an increase in db?

    Short answer, you might not notice a difference. Now if you went with a better 12" sub for that $350, in a better box, then you almost definitely will.
