    Icon32 choosing between multiple kicker steups

    to make things short i can't decide on which setup to go with. i know im gonna be happy with whatever i pick, im pretty much just looking for some opinions. im pretty much just looking for SPL.

    #1
    Solo X 12
    two KX1200.1

    #2
    two L7 15
    two SX1200.1

    #3
    four L5 8
    two KX600.1

    as far as speakers im going with SS components. my current setup is a 12" SX and a brutus 1000d. the only reason im changing to all kicker is because im getting a very good deal on all their products and i would be stupid not to take advantage of it.

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    im pretty sure i can fit all those setups in there. the only one i think might be a little tight is the four 8's.

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    if your going to port the 15s i dont think you would be able to fit them and thats the only way to have those kickers

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    imho.....get there amps and processors...subs are trash in my book......dont get me wrong they get loud and have a decent amount of sq but durability *****.....once the coil get hot or start heating up....the glue that hold the cone and the spider and vc melts and separates everything..stick with the sx

    80
    its up 2 u..

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    i would do the 4 8's or a 10 or 12" set up but that 8" should sound pretty good. depending on the set you could stagger them.

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    thanks for the input so far. sealed or ported isnt much of a big deal to me. im pretty set on getting one of these setups, and for the price ill be getting them durabliity isnt much of a concern either.

    the solox 12 is what ive been leaning towards the most. i just like the idea of having one powerfull 12" sub. then again the four 8's would look pretty good in the back of my hatch. but then you would kind of think the two 15's would be the loudest setup of the three. so as you can see im pretty much torn between these three choices

    you can make the 8's look trick with a "horseshoe" box wrapping an amp rack back there

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    I'd go with #2. I don't think a 1200.1 would give that Solo enough power to really let it open up.

    EDIT - I just reread the original post. 2 KX1200.1s would do the job so now it's a toss up.

    Re: choosing between multiple kicker steups

    I agree, the ported Solo X with the dual 1200's sounds like the best setup. Dual 15's would be loud as heck, but the ported Solo X would look nice, sound amazing with that power and fit better.

    Not sure what 80 meant, but return rate on all subs is very low, but if you overheat VC, that can happen to any sub......damage.
