    Multi Subs different brands

    I hear all the time dont mix different sizes of subs and that i can understand. What about same size subs but different brands? I have two 10in CVT kickers and one 10in JL 10w7, i put them all together and it seemed to sound good no problems or anything but im not too sure if its safe. No one ever has a concrete answer so any help?

    i also checked the specs for each sub and compared they dont really differ too much except they 10w7 can handle more power than the kickers.

    Extra info: running a exile 2400.1, 1 ohm stable, 4 gauge wire.

    Who knows what sort of screwed up load your getting wiring all those together too since the JL is a single 3 ohm or whatever the hell they are

    OP the Kickers are single 2 or single 4 and the JL is single 3. This isn't a good idea... What kind of box do you have the w7 in?

    What everyone is saying is different subs have different power draws and can damage amps or the subs themselves. Like the more power drawing dominant sub will take away from the others. Or they may just draw way more than the amp is capable of dishing out.
