    Been thinking about upgrading the amp. Not sure what I want, yet. Thinking of MMATS, DD, something along those lines...

    I'd recommend an SSA Icon, Fi SSD, IA Deathrow, AA Havocs. All would be great options on 1500w of power. And should fit in a box at or under 4 cubes if you went with a 15" model. They'd be better built than the Kicker L7, and be a better value too. Also, I'd steer clear of any of the newer RE audio stuff, not much quality control there any more.
    Just a link to one of the subs I suggested as an example: ICON 15 Sound Solutions Audio 15" 1250W ICON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE

    Those suggestions are if you're only looking new. SPLaudio makes some phenomenal custom subs for ya, at a great value too. And there's tons of options on here you could get used.

    Considering a 15" square sub has more cone area than a 15" round sub, I would say you are going to lose output, but you will be able to have it in a smaller box. Also, remember Hoffman's law : Small box, efficient, low end response, you can only pick 2.

    Yes the l7 is crazy loud but was hoping to get even louder and deeper with the re xxx in a smaller box 3.5 cubes as to comparasion with the kicker six cube box which takes up a lot of room!
    I have looked at sundown nightshade v2 15 but I think it requires a lot of box? Doesn't it and a lot more power than a zx1500 can give
    You can get a 15" sundown z v3 for under $400 used and itll do pretty good off your amp and they like smaller boxes too.

If I had that setup if look into a brz 2100 ... That's just me tho and that's a budget Amp... And if I was gunna spend more of throw a saz 2500 at them and get crazy lol maybe a Aq 2200 that's just my opinion tho all great amps you'll be happy regardless

    Ha I read them sometimes and laugh myself.

    I shouldn't jump straight to the high dollar I guess unless I can find a good used one for a price I like. The hifonics amps are great on a budget. Maybe ill stick with that until I get a raise... :p
