    Depends on what you mean by "good"........Kicker is a quality company and builds high quality subs. The L7 will also get insanely loud, however in my opinion they don't sound very good SQ wise at all.

    Haven't heard the Type-X, but I would take the W7 over the L7

    Depends on how much room you have for a box and how loud you want to get. If you are short on real estate, go with the 12 or the 10. If you have the room and want to get super loud, go with the 15

    3rd up can i use a MRD-M1001 alpine amp?? or should i use a Kicker Class-D amp
    Use whatever amp you would like. Either of those will work fine. But IMO the Alpine amps are only worth the money if you have an Alpine headunit to fully utilize all the "features" of the amp.

    correct on the insanely loud part. i will disagree on the sq, however the solo barics need a great enclosure to sound good. not the best sql woofer out there, definitely more of a spl driver.

    Haven't heard the Type-X, but I would take the W7 over the L7

    same boat as squeak here. i haven't heard a type x, the w7's are awesome subs regardless of price. but price is their downside, u can get a pair of L7's for the price of a single same size w7. so it depends on how deep your pockets are and what kinda sound your after. also, if you're going to be doing the install yourself, the L7's are way more user freindly.

    agreed..but get the 12's if you want some sql. IMO 12's are a little more forgiving on box design for sql. a bad box and a 15 are insanely muddy whereas a bad box and a 12, while still muddy, might not appear as so due to the subs lighter weight and ability to rebound a tad quicker. again, that is opinion and not necessarly a fact written in stone.

    Zinthesis asked

    Use whatever amp you would like. Either of those will work fine. But IMO the Alpine amps are only worth the money if you have an Alpine headunit to fully utilize all the "features" of the amp.


    again, agreed. but if money is not an issue, get a jl or maybe even one of the new rf t types. those are supposed to be monsters. of course memphis is a great one. i loved every memphis amp i have owned. the 1000d is hard to beat for size, power, looks and price in a mainstream amp.


    sorry...i was bored...wanted to post in a different way :*******:

    mostly i just agree with squeak, but wanted to toss in a few more opinions.

    i like my L7's but I will admit they dont have the SQ that the W7 does, but they are cheaper, so if u got the money get the W7 if not u wont be dissapointed with a L7.

    L7s are great subs, but L5s are cheaper, and the differences both visually and mechanically are very few.

    I would choose a Type X over a w7. I would choose a W7 over an L7.

    I'd buy the L7 and a mini bike with the $$ left over.

    The humor never ceases to amaze me...


    NEver heard a type X. Like most people stated, the w7 is a GREAT sub, both in SQ and SPL BUT if you can't afford it, or aren't looking for sq as much, then go L7. PORTED!!!

    L7 ported = wins

    The SQ isnt as bad as a lot of people make it out to be.
