    Looking to upgrade from kicker l7 15

    Hey guys! I just purchased the zx1500.1 amp today
    I currently have a kicker l7 15 that I'm looking to upgrade from simply because its in a 5.5 cube ported box taking up tons of space
    Was thinking of getting a re xxx 15 in a 3.5 cube box ported!
    Another other recommendations?
    Just craving more bass than what my l7 can give me!
    ANd its going in a f150 extended cab

    Look into Incriminator and SSA. The newer RE subs aren't that great from what I've heard and are ridiculously over-priced.

    People bash em on sq, but if all you're looking for is louder bass... The l7 is tough to beat. Maybe a move to two twelves would be more in order. More cone area than a standard 15 (don't know how the area would stack against the kicker) and you can use a 4 cube box. Maybe 3 tens for a 3.5 cube box...

    Re: Looking to upgrade from kicker l7 15

    No more than 600 for a sub
    Really wanted to stick with 1 15!
    Wouldn't 2 12 l7 be choking in a 4 cube box? 2 cubes per chamber?
    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

    Looking at the specs, the boxes look to be pretty similar in size. The Nightshade would do ok on your amp, but you would most likely want to upgrade to a bigger one when you have the money.

    I just upgraded from Alpine Type R's to Incriminator. I have to be honest, the Type Rs could shake my car more than the LIs I just put in. Now, with that being said, the LIs are CLEANER and all around amazing quality subs.

    Your goal seems to be SPL over SQ...

    I don't see you significantly jumping in bass, no...

    could always try a smaller box and change up the tuning, think box specs on that L7 are min- 3cuf poted, max 6cuf ported..

    What is the tuning on your box right now? Is it a custom box?
