    Re: undecided

    what are you looking for sq or spl, if your going to spend 450 on one sub i would buy the resonant engineering xxx, mag d2, or an ED A, all should be under $450 and have lots of power

    Re: undecided

    ^^^^None of those subs are worth 450. I have 2 12 inch type r's that i got for 230 on ebay for both and I love them, awesome sq and will get very loud if u give them enough power. The kicker s7 isnt in the type r or w6's league. If u got 450 to dropp on a single sub i would personally go with a mag or an xxx but thats just me.

    Re: undecided

    First lets find out what we are looking for. SPL/SQ ratio. How much room are you willing to give up. Is the 450 including box amp wires. Do you want all you can get for 450 or would you like to save.

    you say the subs aren't worth $450 but then at the end of your post you say you would go with a mag or a xxx

    WTF is a kicker s7? never heard of it?

    Did you mean L7's?
    L7's will blow Type-R's away in SPL!

    If you want SQ, then forget L7's. They get stupid loud, but in a LARGE box, they can probally sound good.
