    Which is the Better sub JL or Kicker Comp?

    What's up to all?

    A quick question for you all. I'm looking for 2 new subs to be set up on independent sealed boxes, the smallest possible. So far I've narrowed it down to 2 subs Kicker Comp 10" or JL Audio 10WOs both 125w rms each 8ohms for 4ohm load.

    Which would be best for my amp Sony 2150gsx 760w:

    Key Features:

    150 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    190 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
    380 watts x 1 in bridged mode
    stereo, bridged mono, or Tri-Way output
    MOSFET power supply and output stages
    50-300 Hz high-pass/low-pass filter, 12 dB/octave
    line-level and speaker-level inputs
    gold-plated connectors
    preamp outputs
    variable bass boost (0-10 dB) centered at 40 Hz
    requires 8-gauge power and ground leads

    I would also second the JL Audio option. It is better suited to small enclosures and has a great output potential and arguably better SQ.

    take it easy,

    I'd have to go with the JL... W0 subs have great SQ for entry level subs and I have never been impressed with Kicker Comps

    The JL being underrated is a lot better then the overrated kicker.
    the jl is still very good sounding in tiny boxes
