This is something that ive seen over plenty of threads. Most say pure cone area prevails...there is no replacement for displacement..ive been hearing that since ive been in the Car Tuning world. A statement been held true through many applications. But then there are the few times to where motor force or just not enough displacement replaced one sub.
1 Kicker Solo X 12"
2 Kicker Comp 15"s
I highly believe that those comps will not outperform regardless of what box they are in...maybe if the solo x is in a horrible box maybe.....
I understand that Enclosure as well as wattage plays a major role in determining something like this....but to me i dont think its that cut and dry that more cone area means its louder. This is all speculation as well as curiosity. Instead of posting multiple "versus" threads..i figure whenever my curiosity sparked id post it here. And any others that have questions on the same concept. Theres no way that this will or has to be a sticky...but im pretty positive that itll help other noobs as well as just the curious with their setup or future setups.
My first one i have a question about.
1 Kicker L3 12" or 2 Kicker Comp 10"s? 600w of 2ohm power. comps are not mine as i was asked by a buyer which would be louder. L3 is in a 5cu ft ported box
