    Which Sub for SPL

    I know there a lot of factors to think about when saying 1 sub will sound better than another sub (instal, amp, box ect.....) But over all which of these subwoofers would have the best spl, which would have the best sql?

    2 12' Kicker L5's
    2 12' Diamond D6's
    2 12' Memphis M3's
    2 12' Incriminator Audio Lethal Injections's
    ( All 05 models.)

    Re: Which Sub for SPL

    try some SXs maybe, but an SX is a little more $ than most of those subs but would
    beat all those in spl, and it dosent sound too bad
    get an 18 SX and start wangin'

    my choice would prolly be the Li too if it was those subs only or the L5 because they r shiny

    Re: Which Sub for SPL

    Why not step up to the L7s if you're going Kicker?

    Probably money.

    I'd say go with IAs, they aren't really pure SPL subs, I've never heard a review that called them that, but they do get loud. My 187s get very loud. =)

    Re: Which Sub for SPL

    You will be happy. I would say that mine are as loud if not louder then my buddies dual 12L7's. I am also underpowering them a lot. Each sub is only getting around 400 but when i buy a new amp i want each to have closer to 700. Very strong drivers!!!

    I know, Noah has 1 12 in his gf's jeep w/ 600 watts. It's alomst as loud as my 2 12" IKP's w 300 watts each. When I get em, they'll be sent 600+ RMS each, in a 5 cube NET box tuned to ~28 hz with 70"^2 of port, should be rediculous...

    I'm not sure, but it wouldn't really surprise me, they have REALLY strong motors.
