Re: Think I'm Gonna Be Jealous?
Most likely. I've used my 403a on a sub and it sounded wonderful, but you may be jealous because he has a shiva. The shiva is really effecient and the added effeciency of ported box will come to play as well. You have a powerful amp, but with your Kicker being a little ineffecient compared to his Shiva will be the difference. If you had double the power, you'd probably win, but with around the same amount.........I'd bet he's louder (not by much though).
Shop around, Retail is always too much!!!!
