Hi i just have been looking at getting a new system for a toyota highlander and i'm getting lost. I know i want to get kicker subs but i have a few questions i need answered. First what kicker sub do i pick L7, CVX, L5 and do i need one or two? Is one L7 better than two L5s. I know that L7 is the best but do i need that much? i want 12". Than will i lose any sound/bass if i don't use the kicker box and buy another box made for the square subs? Another problem i'm having is if i get two subs the amp to run them is expensive? so does it matter if i get a 4ohms or 2ohms subs? do they make different ohms subs or is that just how are wired in the box? I'm going to wire it for series/parallel and my amp will be able to run at 2ohms. so if i buy 2 subs at 4ohms they are dual voice. how do you wire them to get them at a 2ohms? thanks for any help
the best bang as far as spl id go with l7's the best bang as far as decent sounding cvx the best bang for decent sounding decent loud cvr its all what u wants personally l5's arent anything special at all. WOrst bang- l5's
first off, why onlly kicker subs? and the ohms are how the sub is wired to match the amp. for ex, if its 2 dual 4 ohm subs, then it can be wired to 1 ohm. if its one dual 4 ohm sub, it can be wired to 2 ohms. go here for wiring: http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp and instead of buying a box already made, why not build your own? its easy and people here will help thro the process. if yuo make your own box, chances are, it will be better made and sound better.
2 subs at 4 ohms, i know this one i think,,, if you run all parrallel youll get 1 ithink if you run them all in series youll get 16 (bad) if you run the vcs in parrallel and the subs in series, youll get, 4 if you wire3 vc in parrallel and one in series i believe it comes to around 2, but i dont even know if thats possible, hopefully one of theses audiophiles will jump in but i believe that would work.... maybe im a dxmbxss but who knows, lol, kinda new to dvc subs...
haha just go what i told you, and depending on what subs u want. i would get ur amp first and see what the best rms power it gets either 1 or 2 ohm most likely and then u can find out what vc u need your subs
fi SSD or Q ficaraudio.com DD2512 ddaudio.com ascendent audio arsenal ascendantaudio.com audioque.com tcsounds.com look around at those sites and see what you like. there are others that other people will post.
dustin is right ... the new l7s have a better sounding response then years previous low hitting frequencies tend to make the woofer shine more ... the woofer is a very good budget spl woofer, and the sq isnt horrible, there are alottttt of subs that sound worse and are around the same price range ... in the correct enclosure powered properly ... its unbeatable
Ok the Q and the SSD both sound good but but do i need only one Q? If i got the ssd should i get two of them. and does it really matter what size i mainly listen to rap so i heard a 12" does good with that kind of music. thnaks for all the help.
