I ran a L3 10" dual Vc 2 ohm, I believe, for about a month waiting for my Gcon 12 to be built. I was impressed with the L3. Most everything I read on those was not so good... It was in it's factory kicker box too... Small and on e in a while i could smell the vc's cooking... slightly! But still decent. I also have been out of the car audio game for many years, so anything was loud! Lol then I got my Gcon..... Build quality is good, and the son of a ***** slams! All bass notes are present. At least that I can hear. Some I can't but I can see my mirror vibrate. I guess I'm saying the kicker is not in the same field as the Gcon. I'd guess kicker isn't in the same field as many others. You can spend lesser on better.
