    Which Would Sound Better

    Alright, I was just talking to my friend and he is upgrading his system. I recently just bought new stuff too. I was just wondering what setup you think is going to be better.

    My Setup:
    1 12" Kicker 05CVR124 w/ both voice coils wired in parallel for 2 ohm load
    Sealed Box
    Powered by 450 watts RMS x 1 @ 2 ohms

    His Setup:
    2 Rockford Fosgate Punch Stage 1 10" Subs
    Sealed Box
    All 4 of His Speakers and The Two Subs Powered By a 1000 watt amp (thats all he told me)

    By the way, I know since hes amp'ing his speakers his overall system will sound a little better im sure, but im referring more to the sub systems...

    He told me his would sound clearer... just wondering what you guys thought

    Okay okay okay...

    I understand that

    But under hypothetical situations... say the same install.. say the perfect install... whatever you want... all variables the same...

    Re: Which Would Sound Better

    chubby you are one little bitter man...

    just pretend im asking which subs are better...

    im looking to buy some brand new subs and the decision is between 1 12" Kicker 05CVR124 or 2 10" RF Punch Stage 1 .... both powered to full RMS rating

    Re: Which Would Sound Better

    although im biased towards SQ of CVR's because i think the new rockford line sounds like sloppy dog farts, id have to also say it depends on install

    Re: Which Would Sound Better

    hypothetically, i'd say ur kicker. but it is install dependent as i have heard a dual l7 setup sound better than a w7 setup.

    Re: Which Would Sound Better

    Just another question... I know everything is install dependent, but are there really true differences between the sound produced by 1 12" or 2 10"s? Like lets say they are all the same brand same everything except for size. I know the 10"s will move some more air, so if everything else is the same, does that mean the 10"s will be louder but not necessarily better sq (assume install is the same sealed box or perfect)
