    Help guys

    Ok guys i've narrowed down the subs I want to either 2 S12L7 or 1 S15L7 the only problem with getting the 2 S12s are gettting an amp to power them i'm not sure if i have that kind of money. But I'm looking at getting the S15 but I want to know will it be louder than 2 S12s? Also what is a good amp for either to really give it some power but say under 220 dollars? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I asked my self that exact same question about the subs, i went with the 15in L7, looks like you dont wanna make a box so id go for a SUBZONE vented/ported box they are on ebay as well

    Re: Help guys

    OK I'm going with a S15L7 and a Sony amp that is 900 watts RMS at 2 ohms so I will be pushing 900 watts through it I know sony isn't great but this is just for awhile and I will get a better amp soon plus a few more Solo Barics. One more question one thing I know nothing about is AMP kits do I need a 4 gauge or 8? Will this one work? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...711371396&rd=1

    Do not get a sony amp! They are not worth it, you can get alot better. I know you said they are not that great, but i wouldnt even give em that much credit. Look into profile for cheap power.

    4ga would suffice nicely . but the legacy part isnt too good. Head up to your local walmart and get a scorche amp kit, theyre cheap and get the job done.

    ^^^ what he said. Dont mix sub sizes. Long story short its not good and for this application its not worth it. with an L7 and a good box you can get plenty loud without adding different size woofers.

    Edit: yeah same here, im not quite sure of the difference either

    Sorry I sound like an idiot but what do you mean by my VC config? Also so I can make it so that second amp is pushing 900 watts RMS to that S15L7?

    Re: Help guys

    No prob, were all here to learn. By VC(voice coil) config i mean your coil(s) have a certain resistance measured in ohms that need to match the amp. You can have SVC or single voice coil, or DVC dual voice coils. For the aforementioned amps you want your final resistance of your coils to be 4 ohms. so you need to get your woofer in a single voice coil 4ohm, or a dual voice coil 2 ohm.
