    Icon8 Not Impressed with Kicker Comp-R's.

    In a 48 hour period I've gone through two 12" Comp R's . Both rated at 800 watts rms. The Amp I'm running is a 1200 watt rms at 2 ohms. I've always owned Kicker since I've been into car audio and at this point I've come to the realization from my experiences and also my friends' that they are weak subwoofers period.

    On that note, I'm looking for suggestions on a Single 12" sub that can handle 1200 watts rms and handle it well. I'm not huge into the clean sounding stuff, I just want it to rattle my brains. I've been looking a little at the RE SXX12D. Anyone have anything good or bad to say about the "RE" brand or this sub in particular? I want to open my horizons into trying out different brands, being that up to this point I've really only had Kicker and I'm not willing to own another one of their subs. Thanks in advance!

    Re: Not Impressed with Kicker Comp-R's.

    Michael the amp Im running is a Kicker Cx1200.1. Its a 1200 watt rms amp at 2 ohms, using 4 gauge power wire.

    The box is a ported 2.25 cubic inch box pre-fabbed. Im also running a 3 farad cap.

    As far as the price Im looking to spend no more than $300 on the sub. Ive seen plenty either as much or cheaper than that which have good reviews

    NEVER use a prefab. When you get a new sub get a custom box built or do it yourself.

    how did you have the amp settings? Gain? bass boost? SSF? what kind of music do you listen to?

    This ^^^ Take the rest of that money and build you a custom box.It will be like night and day.Setting gains properly helps also.
