    2 15" Kicker CVR vs. 1 15" Kicker CVX??

    I want to upgrade my sucky system in my car which is currently 2 kicker comp 12s with a pioneer amp either to 2 15 kicker cvrs or 1 15 kicker cvx. I know that cvrs have bad highs and I need good highs and lows. What're some pros and cons of the CVX speaker?? Thanks!

    What would be some better choices that have great lows and highs? Because the system I get is the one I want to stay with. Thanks.

    CVR's out of your choices.. but what's your budget and how much power?

    And the ability to hit a wider range of notes is mainly box dependent.

    I have my whole car wired on like 0 gauge monster wire and a pioneer double din. After I find the sub I wanna buy ill find an amp but I want one sub that will hit harde than 2 15 cvrs at least. But I'll power it properly.

    ---------- Post added at 07:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:23 PM ----------

    Power has to be at least 1000 rms on one sub and price range is up to about 450 for the sub

    Crap vs. Crap. Better subs for the money. But more is needed, plus you're going about this a bit backwards IMO. Pick out your amp, how much power you can run and at what impedance. Make sure your electrical in your car can support it. Then measure how much space you have to lose for a box. That will determine the size/amount of subs you can run. Then choose your subs. And look outside of Kicker unless you have a lot of space to lose and are dead set on running Kicker.

    Mostly ignored it. Plus he may have meant upper sub-bass? Who knows.

    CVRs aren't bad for making a lot of bass. The inductance spec on those is quite high, which has negative implications for SQ (little muddier than I prefer), but a pair of them on 1000 watts in a 10 ft^3 box tuned low will out-slam many 1000 watt setups.



    Simple SQ System:

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-117
    Active Crossover: Cache' CEX
    Front Stage Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-704
    Components: Polk Audio DB 6501
    Sub Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-1000m
    Sub: JBL P1224, 2.5 ft^3 @ 25 hz enclosure
    Rear Fill: Sony Xplod 5.25s on HU power lolz
