    Re: orion h2 12" vs. kicker solo x 12"

    It would be close but I would say the h2's b/c of surface area and the solo would not have full power. I heard the new 12 solo X's (at very low volume) and I was actuly quite impressed... At low volumes it was very clear i didn't think they would sound that good...

    I think it would be close either way

    Another question I wanted to ask is that can you use either of these subs for regular music or are they just for burps?

    Re: orion h2 12" vs. kicker solo x 12"

    My new h2 sounds really good and clear in a sealed box. I plan on listening to it every day. Yesterday I pulled 146 db on the dash with only 1220 watts rms going to it. Thats not bad for one 12 in a sealed box.

    The Solo in my opinion would be used just mainly for blurps, I doubt it would sounds good at high volumes and any of Kickers solos are not known for the SQ. b/c its a little brother of the origional solo X i would say that it is more of a comp driver than a daily driver IMO

    The SoloX has a few SQ awards!

    I'd say the H2 b/c it's getting enough power while you havent even given the SoloX enough to move!

    H2's were made for sq but just happen to be really fukin loud.....Same as xxx's,brahmas etc...... I think 3 cubes is a touch to big for for an h2 12. I would recommend the h2 but I also must say I haven't heard (or seen in real life) a solo-x. So take it for what its worth

    If the 12" is anything like it's big 18" brother, then yes. It needs it's RMS power to actually get moving!
