hey man, i would go with the kickers. for a tight budget i would get 2xcvr 12's. 80 a piece for most and they hit so hard. if you got the money move on up to the L5's or even L7's. Planet audio amp is the best also for L5's and L7's
slow down on suggestions dude. there is plenty more to be had than kicker for that kinda money. l7s get loud but from what i have heard they have little or no sound quality (SQ). i have a couple comps that i traded some DVDs for. they make noise, but i have had to fix them twice, and i cant wait till my Fi Q comes so true bumping can occur lol. but listen to JB, go talk to the guys in the sub forum.
