Im considering buying 2 12" L5 kicker solo-baric subs with 4ohm DVC. And gettting a 1300HCT audiobhan amp to power them. What do you guys think? Will I be able to wire these to the amp for a 1ohm load? (Im new to caraudio stuff) Im looking for LOUD Hard hitting bass, not sound quality
From what i've heard, the l5's will rock your world, they are great subs, not made for sq du to the square model, but they kick :P .one thing u must learn right now is that audiobahn is TOTAL CRAP. Poorly built quality, absolute energy suckers.... So u can stick with the subs but not the amp A very good affordable amp is a JBL BP-1200. You will be send 600wrms to each subs. Try to buy them of ebay, you will save alot of money.
thats basically right. audio bahn amps are not totally crap, but they tend to be really really inefficient. u might need to of those to compare to a jl or jbl amp with the same rms rating. an amp that i personally think has good sq is the visionik or the hifonics---crisp sound. they are really versatille too. jbl and jl audio were meant to be played on higher end subs
i have the exact same amp and I have 2 12l7 DVC 4ohm and i have it running parallel/parallel and its a 1ohm load. You're gonna need another one of those amps. mine i know i need another one. But, I just blew my amp. lol it sucks. I didn't even have it for a month. It wasn't blown because of overpowering its just i'm a dumbass and was messing around with it while it was on. It does look fat though. Blue lights and all
Well paypal is making me do some crap thats gonna take 5 days to complete before I can use it to pay again so I wasnt able to pay for the l5's. I am thinking about takign things down a notch and getting two Rockford Fosgate RFD2212 12" Punch HX2 (Dual 4 ohms) and a hifonics class d amp. What do you guys think of these. I also need to buy I new deck, stock one isnt cutting it.
i cant comment on the rockford, never heard one in action although i ve heard the old stuff is the greatest in rockford. i can comment on the hifonics. they sell quality amps that i can live by. i mostly want one on my system cuz my mtx thunder isnt cutting it anymore. for the highs that is. good luck man. one more thing... dont make the mistake i did by buying lower end then what i intended to buy and then underselling it to buy better gear later. get what u desire since the beggining even if u gotta buy it part by part. so if u really want to go for the l5's go for them.just an advise from a consumer who screwed hiself bad in the past.
