    Re: New setup input

    If you are going for sq, dont buy that kicker. Honestly i wouldnt buy the kicker if you were going for spl, sql, or sq, lol. Much better can be had for the money. Do your big 3 in 0 gauge wire, use something like audio technix or knukonceptz.

    Re: New setup input

    Read up on this fourm and see what equipment people are running, look into american bass, fi, DC, DD, Sundown, Audioque, SSA brands like that. Audioque has a 2200 watt amp for 60 bucks less than your rockford. Gives you head room to upgrade later down the road.

    Re: New setup input

    I want something loud but as I have the space I was going to use the SQ box specs. I have been lurking the forums and was talking with some coworkers about the W7 SA12 / 15 and decided to go with the L7. How good is the AMP in your opinion? I was looking at a hifonics but hear that it works but isnt that great...

    I would take a look at that audioque 2200, site is soundqubed.com its on sale for 60 bucks less than your rockford and has free shipping. How much space do you have?

    Re: New setup input

    The trunk is 18.6 cu ft.

    I was originally talking about putting 2 12's in and my coworkers suggested going up to a single 15. The L7 has been known for high SPL/SQL and Im fine with that. I want something that will out put massive bass and not sound like sh**.

    The audioque 2200 only being 60$ less... is it a better sub or on par? I dont want to upgrade this system unless I blow it or burn it up...
