    Re: Audible difference between SA-12 and L7?

    I've had many friends run L7 setups. 12's and 15's. Every single woofer has failed on rated power. Their "ok" as far as spl. Their very picky on enclosures. And sound absolutely terrible. The only way id recommend running them is in a multiple sub setup for strictly burps.

    Re: Audible difference between SA-12 and L7?

    What about the "JL Audio CP212-W0v3". Which is two 12W0v3's in JL's slot ported box. How would these sound? Sorry i'm just exploring my options and would prefer the manufacturers box over me building one. Which is why I asked about the L7's in Kicker's box.

    manufacturer enclosure + sub combos would run you way more than an SA + a custom box from a builder from this site.

    Sorry a little new to car audio. I want it for my daily driver. I got about 1000w @ 2 ohms. I want it to be able to go very low and loud.

    Going from SA and L7 to W0's is a huge downgrade.
