Is Kicker any good?

 

Anonymous
 
Ive heard all you guys talkin about DD, jeez lol i cant remember all the other different brands that you guys mention. But i never really see Kicker. Is kicker any good? Ive heard there stuff and it sounds awesome.. i like the L7's.

Im looking at getting some new stuff, im gonna spend about 5grand or so. I want SQL not that hardcore pound pound nerve racking BS. i want nice tight bass, plenty of it, and be able to actually hear some vocals lol. I do not want ported as yes i know that will boom the hell out of my car. i have a mazda rx-7 to play with.. 93, so i have the whole back to install the stuff. any suggestions?

Ya, kicker is mid grade brand. They sound like crap though... they will get loud though!
Go with Jl, Eclipse, RE, Adire.
For component's Infinity makes some pretty good stuff.

Ok thanks guys lol, i must be outa the loop, i havent even heard of the DD or ID or even Adire Subs. Or Boston Z's, lol or even the a/d/s/ ones.. i always thought kicker was great at all the competitions.. Yeah i actually calculated the stup i was gonna get, which all included kicker but now im not so sure anymore and it came out to 5grand.. So if i can get WAY better, id greatly like some Links, and some advice! I just want reall nice sound quality and big tight clean bass. Thanks!

kicker was once good but has really gone down hill, what youre paying for now is the name. the same applys to rockford fosgate which has also gone down hill. alot of these companys are newer, theres alot of good stuff. dd stands for digital designs. they are are real good for spl. if you want sql go with idmax, jl, re tripple x which can found at reaudio.com, and diamond audio. also check out adire bramah.

You could go with 2 12 inch RE x.x.x, with 2 JBl 1200.1 to each, for component's, check out MB Quarts and Infinity.

Ok, after long research i have narrowed my selection to JL, and RE. What do you guys think i should go for? Im really confused on the Amp issue. Could you tell me what all the 500/1 blah blah blah means? Thanks guys! if I were to go with JL i was looking at the 10" W7. i would get 2 of them. If their components are superb i will decide on them too. if not ill look at the MB, and Infinity. If i were to go with the 10" W7, what amps would i need? thanks guys!

Kicker? haha I'm just going to act like I didn't even read that post.
Sub, you really think you're T has better sq than the W6? That's a pretty bold statement.
Eclipse is better on the price, and sound amasing. I also don't like JL, because everyone loves them so freaking much. Not minny people know of Eclipse around where I live, thats a nother reason I want a pare of Eclipse's.
Sub is also right about RE needing a lot of power, but if you give the x.x.x 1000 watt's rms, the Eclipse T 1000 watt's rms, they all perform fine. They all sound really close, just go with the one you like the look's of, and fit's you're price range the most. As for amp's, It just depend's on the sub you deside on.

hey taylor,

Ok so i have it narrowed again to Eclipse. Here too, many people do NOT know Eclipse so i wanna stand out. that will be fun. its between the W6 and the Eclipse T.. Errgg.. i like the black look of the W6.. looks killer. Would match my car too.. Will have to decide.. So these 2, good choices?

Im still confused on the components, should i match the components with the Sub brand? thanx!!

Also need help with the amps. ive slimmed the choices, can ya give me advise?

Go with the Fosgate, mine have worked for me just fine.

That is going to be a tough decision... both are unbelievable sub's! For the Eclipse, look at amp's like the Hifonic's 1000D or the Hifonic's BX1500D, or The JBL 1200.1 unless you can spend a little more money on an amp.
As far as an amp for the w6, not for sure what there rms rating is, I no the 10's are less, but not sure how much. If you could post the rms of the 10w6 that would be helpfull.
As far as component's, it isn't always better to go with the same brand. Some companies make one thing better than the other. They might makenice amp's, but lack in the sub department.
 

Anonymous
 
Subfanatic, i added you to msn.

Taylor,

the RMS on the 10W6 is around 700Max. 500-600 continuous. Money is no option. I dont care how much its gonna cost me. I have 5grand to blow on this stuff. So lol give me all your ideas! I think im possibly gonna go with the Eclipse. As for components, im still lost in the water. MBQuard is that better then Infinity? any suggestions? Oh and suggestions for amps for the components too.

I've owned several brands of components or "seperates" over the years, from Boston Acoustics, Infinity, Kenwood and even crappy Pioneer product. I've also listened to quite a few different brands in other people's cars. Right now, I am running 2 sets (Mid+tweet) of Infinity Kappas (because they where cheap) and a set of RF 10's, in a ported enclosure, in a standard cab full size Chevy. I think the Infinity's are ok, they are bright, not quite harsh, but close.

If you're looking for sound quality I think you'd be hard pressed to find something better than Bostons. It took 3 sets of Bostons to keep up with the same sub power I'm running now, in my old truck, but the system was much clearer all the way around playing everything from hardcore punk to rap. The Infinity's sound best with rap.

There are tons of pain inducing seperates out there, it seems they are made so one set can keep up with a pair of 15's, but they're almost all just shrill noisemakers.

You have to go and listen to some systems in cars if you really want to decide on the right thing, everyone has different tastes.

The only subs I've used are Pyle, MTX and Fosgate, and of those the Fosgates have taken a beating and survived for the longest time. I wouldn't consider them "sound quality" speakers, but they can beat out dirty bass in an improper inclosure with some respectable sound.

As for amps. Check out Zapco. If you want something cheaper, check out MTX or Rockford, their stuff is made in the same place. I would steer clear of Hifonics, Lanzar, and Infinity. I've made parts for all of these companies in the past, and I can say MTX and Rockford practice decent quality control, where the last three are only about getting the cheapest ish they possibly can.

Thanx Nut Shmeg,

I dont care about pricing, as stated above. Any expensive stuff, any great things, i dont care price is no limit.. So people stop mentioning if i want cheaper lol. It does not matter to me.

I think ive decided on Eclipse subwoofers. But i dont know what series.. Which series do i get? i want 2 10" or maybe 4? lol!! maybe 4 is too much, you guys think? For components im really going to look at the boston acoustics. Nobody has them, or demo places here to hear them. So that kinda sucks. Same with the Eclipse. But im taking your guys' word for it.

I really dont want an MTX or Rockford product in my car.. to me they are like entry level stuff.. I dunno my opinion. Any other amps you suggest?

Is that Jbl peak rating's?
If money is no problem, you should check out the T it's like the 9104 series or something like that. Eclipse also make's really good amp's. Sence you might go with Eclipse sub's, it would be pretty cool to have matching amp's.
I also have the Infinity Kappa's, they are really loud, and bright. That's the only thing I can really say about them. MB Quart isn't nesacerly better, it just depend's on what you prefer. Some people like the really bright sound.
The Eclipse T is there best sq/spl sub. the only better sub they make is the T Pro, but I don't thing it will have the sq as the T will.
The Alum's Sub keep's talking about are also really great sq sub's, I just think sence you have the money, the T's will be louder with out losing the sq.

hey taylor,

Ok im set on getting the Eclipse. You guys keep saying Eclipse T. Is that Eclipse Titanium series? Also im going to match the Eclipse subs with the Amps. So what Eclipse amps should i get? I Dont really like big brightness of sound, but i really dont think its over the top..right? (the infinity's) I think ill just go with the Infinity's. Im going to go extreme, ive made up my mind, im going to get 4 10" subs. How many sets of components should i get? im thinking 2? If you guys could gimme the amps i will need to run all this that would be awesome! I was thinking to, what head unit do i get? Im debating between the pioneer flip up touch screen, or the Alpine flip up touch screen. Which ones you guys think?

I dont want to make the sub box out of MDF because i want it to shine in the back. Would i use fiberglass? or what material would i use?

the L7's are awesome subwoofers no matter what anyone says. they are loud, sound halfway descent, and they arent that expensive compared to the numbers you will produce. i hear alot of negatives about the L7's but never have i seen someone not pleased with them.

The l7's aren't bad, just don't have the sq that most people are looking for.

As far as the Head Unit's, I have no clue, they are both great companies, Alpine and Pioneer. Personally I'm using a Pioneer so that's what I would go with. Just go with the one you like the most.
Eclipse make's great amp's, Sub is saying that they don't make an amp that will match the T's that great. You are going to go with 4 10 T's? That will be crazy loud! I'll take a look and see what Eclipse amp's I can find to match 4 10's.
The Snale Shell boxes are supposed to be unbelievable.... never used one though, but I hear good thing's.

I was looking at www.wooferetc.com or what ever, and they have a Eclipse DA7122 class D amp. The bad thing is it didn't give me any real spec's. It say's that it is a 2000 watt mono amp at a 2 ohm load. It didn't say if that is rms numbers or peak.
If someone could check out that amp I would apreatiate it.
I was thinking, if that is rms numbers with a 2 ohm load, you could buy 2 of the DA7122 amp's, and wire 2 of the sub's to each amp, giving the amp the 2 ohm load, and each sub will be getting 1000 watt's.
The only other amp I found was a 4000 watt 2 ch amp.

Phil, the l7's are great subs for the price no doubt but most people want some sq with there subs and l7's are not where its at, not bashing them at all, hit real hard.

and Taylor, im at school so i couldnt use eclipses site, its www.eclipse-web.com and i believe its 2000 rms, not sure...but on the site i remember them saying there amps are pretty much built to give unlimited power, idk lol. but 1000 watts would prolly be too much for a 10 inch eclipse TI, have to watch the setting

Yep, I would go with 12's if I wher you. The are great sq/spl sub's. Can't do much better.
Sub, I can't figure out Eclipse's site to check out that amp! 1000 watt's is getting close to there max, just turn the setting's in the HU down a little and you should be fine. I'll keep looking for a better match though.

Thanks for all your input, yes ive made up my mind and am going to get 4 Eclipse T 10's. And im going to go with Infinity kappa components, 1 or 2 sets? im thinking 2.. As far as the head unit, nah im not gonna go with pioneer, its between Alpine, and the Eclipse one. this ones hard lol. They both have what i want! But i really like the eclipse with the anti smudge-glare feature. But the Alpine has the overall package.. errg! Your suggestions? the Alpin is also $2400 0.0 lol $-D

thanks for lookin at more amps. Im seein 1000Watts also for that amp.

Ok thanks for your input, is there any reason why you would choose the Eclipse HU? Ok you said the thing about the amps, can you provide with any certain brands or?

Also for the boxes, i dont want to use MDF, i want to do that fiberglass, molding stuff that looks killer. will that do anything to the sound?

$2400? Did I read that right? That's a lot of money to spend on a HU! You're going to have a total kick A$$ system by the time you're through.
I'm not totally sure on the component's, 4 of the 10's will be loud for sure, 2 would prob work... they have the high pitched sound you'll need to hear over the heart stopping bass you'll have!:-)

I was trying to keep it all Eclipse, but that is going to be hard like Sub said. The MTX 1500D is a pretty good amp.

i just went thru the entire website..they changed the whole site since noon today lol...very exciting haha...but lets see...i went through and alllllll the amps do not have a good match to there own subs haha...bvery odd lol...so the amps i would do is this for ya

the 4 tens would need approximtly 3000 watts RMS to run all 4 optimuly lol, and since your getting good quality subs, and it seems as if you havethe money go with 2 PPI DCX-1500.1 amps, they run 1500 watts rms at 1 ohm and you can wire 2 subs to each amp giving it a 1 ohm load and approx 750 watts rms to each sub, which is what they need.

Dont forget about gettinhg a new alt..you going to need one estimate that at like 400 bucks if you can find a 300 amp alt, a new yellow top bat maybe 2 and get a battery isolater abnd put one with the subs and amps,

with the Fiberglass instead of the MDF, its going to be alot harder to get the right scubic feet, but that will look great with the glossy look of the Ti's and it will still sound good if its well dont....be patient with it dont rush, since your diong that fiberglass i nice amp rack too lol.


finally i would suggest the eclipse HU because if your on here more you will realize im obbsessed with Eclipse, love em to death lol. and they have great products and good prices lol

oh yea...i forgot, also if you dont want the PPI amps, i highly suggest getting them...amazing stuff lol, i would suggest getting 4 jl e1800d amps, 800 watts rms at 2 ohms i think..that would run great

haha yes taylor u read right. $2400. Im in the same boat as you, i like to keep everything to 1 brand. Im mostly a home audio guy, i know my stuff there, i know a bit of car, but not as much as home. And Car is completely different. With the differnt things and such.

Sub, Alrighty i will check out the PPI amps, do you think those would be better overall over the 4 JL's?

Yep im going with 4 Eclipse T's, 2 sets of Infinity Components!! And either PPI Amps. I need an amp to run the components, can you suggest one for those?

I was just going to say that about the alternator. I want to get a seperate battery to run all the Audio stuff. maybe even 2 batteries. I was thinking of getting capacitators too. Whats your input?

Im going with fiberglass to get that sleek killer look. I will get it proffessionaly done since i know some guys who own a customs shop. I will also be sending pics as i get the stuff, and start getting it installed!

Ok im confinced lol, im gonna go with the Eclipse HU.

How about wires, what do i need, and what brand should i get, and gauge? Also can you tell me what ur talkin about of wiring them etc to the amps making them 4ohms, then it goes to 2ohms, etc im lost in that field! thanks!!

for the wiring...get your guys at customs shops to do its...its simpel....but yea get a battery isolater and run 2 batts in the trunk lol...but the ppi amps are incredible lol...and you wont need capacitors...but its a plus if your set on it...with wiring go 00 gauge..your giogn big everywhere...dont skimp on the wire....if its dual 4 ohm sub...it can be wired in seried to get an 8 ohm load or parralel for a 2 ohm load...or 2 4ohm dvc subs can be wired to 1 ohm...or 2 dual voice coil subs that are 2 ohm can be wired to .5 ohm

Ok thanx sub,

Do you recommend any type of wire? Stinger or? ok 00 gauge is what ill get. lol that stuff u just said about the amps and stuff are a blur to me.

Personally, I would rather go with the JL amp's, they'll be a lot more money, but the Eclipse's are underrated, 900 watt's to each would be perfect.
Yep, there are 2 types of voice coil configuration's on sub's. The 4 ohm dvc can be wired to a 2 ohm, or 8 ohm. When you wire 2 4 ohm dvc sub's to 2 ohm's each, the total ohm load will be 4 ohm's... 2 ohm's,+2ohm's. Then there is the 2 ohm dvc, it can be wired to a 1 ohm, or a 4 ohm. With to of them you can wire each to a 1 ohm load giveing the amp a total ohm load of 2 ohm's... 1ohm+1ohm.
Hope I didn't screw you up even more.:-) You'll need a bigger alt with that much power for sure! The Eclipse HU is a good choice too.

Also, he wouldn't need 4 of the E1800D's... I'll check out the spec's, but if they do put out 1800 watts rms at 2 ohm's, all he would have to do is get the 2 ohm dvc virsions... wire 2 sub's to 1 amp giveing the amp a 2 ohm load... the 1800 watt's you are looking for. Each sub will be getting 900 watt's, hope I'm reading and figuring this right! That would work wouldn't it?

I checked it out at www.sonicelectronix.com I was way off, it puts out 1000 rms at 2 ohm's. Yep, you'll need for of them as well. It's $389.
What do you think of RF amp's, would you consider using one? they have a 3000 watt rms amp that would prob work! It is called the Rockford T30001BD. It is also at www.sonicelectronix.com think they want $1200 for it, thats not a bad price either.

Sub,

Lol why would it make it easier, if i signed up?
I dont get all the wiring things.. Like what do Ohms actually mean? And whats the difference between 1 2 4 8ohms etc.. And what improvements it makes to wire 1 or 2 subs to eatch amp.. tahts what confuses me.

Taylor

I was looking last night at the PPI's that sub suggested. They look pretty cool/good. Ehh i duno about the RF amps... I feel like thats an entry level brand. Like JBL, Polk, etc.. i like the oo look what i have lol somethin u never heard of! maybe im just an a$$ lol! :P

Ok i would consider the JL amps. I just dont want no entry level brand thats everywhere.

taylor....PPI amps are some of the best amps out there IMO, lol, but jbl are great starter amps and so on and so forth...RF had some great stuff awhile ago if you can find some of there old stuff...they are in a large slump(ditch) right now lol...the RF amp that Taylor suggested is a great amp, but if your running 4 subs you would end up with a 1/2 ohm resistance i thinik...now its time ti learn you the ohms...if you dont understand this check out www.bcae1.com...its got everything youll ever need to know lol...but this is ohms


Ohms is the resistance to current. So the lower the ohm the lower the resistance. the higher the ohm, the larger the resistance...SOOO lets compare it to a dam...if its got a large resistance (higher ohm) then less water will get through(electrical current)making a less powerful force. If it has a lower ohm it has a lower resistance allowing more power.

It also goes like this EVERYTIME you half a ohm your power doubles or everytime your double your ohm your power halves, see how that works...so example time lol...

If we had the Perfect amp it could halve itself forever until it apporached 0...so lests say it starts at
8 and 100 watts RMS,
then it goest o 4 ohms giving it 200 watts rms, 2ohms=400 watts rms
1 ohm=800
1/2ohm=1600
1/4=2400

so on and so forth until we approach 0, but we never would lol..we dont have a perfect amp, so consider yourself out of luck

NOW ITS TIME FOR WIRING, most subs come in single(low end subs), double(good subs), or quad(competitions like MT's) lol...this is how i understand it!

so if its single voice coil..and you wire it by itself..it stays at that ohm, you worry about this stuff so you know how much power you need at what ohm for certain subs lol. so if its SVC(single voice coil) then it can be wired to its ohm..SVC 4ohm..it gets wired to 4 ohms..simple as that..if its DVC 4 ohm..it has two voice coils and it can get wired in parralell to 2 ohms...or in series to 8 ohms...so you can get differnt powers out of a single sub...but if you have 2 SVC 4 ohm subs, they can be wired the same way as just a DVC 4 ohm K??

BUT if you have 2 DVC they can be wired down (in parraell) to 1 ohm...thats why we were looking at 1500 watt rms amps..the ECLIPSE TI's are 750 watts rms 4 ohm DVC wire two of them to one amp and get a 1 ohm load giving each sub 750 watts rms..PERFECT and put 2 subs to each of the 2 amps...PERFECT...and im not going to go into detail with the other stuff...and register becaue its easier for me to know who anon is ahha...but JL is overrated...200 bucks for the anme basically...but KICK A$$$ STUFF

Thanks that does make sense!

Rf is actually on the way back up with there new power line, intery level? Something that everyone has?
How minny people are running there T amp's? Example the T1001 T200001Bd, and the T30001Bd, they are exalent amp's. The PPI's are nice too.
I'm supprised you got what Sub was saying about the ohm's... I know what he was talking about and I didn't even understand what he was saying. j/k

400 watts to each will be fine. I have 2 hx2's, and I'm using the Rockford P8002 to push them.
Yes, the Rockford's will be louder than the Infinities. The sq might not be quite as good though.
The Jl's extra power isn't enough to notice any difference. The only reall reason to get the JL amp's, is if you want to buy the name, or you just want to be able to say that you have 4 Jl E1800D amp's.:-)

Subfan, I know exactly what you mean. I go into these stores like Best Buy and Circuit City and mess around with these guys to see what they know. Some of them know what their talking about but most are idiots. They try to sell you a sub and they are like "Ya man this Sony Xplod handles 1000 watts peak, It will definitely hit in your car." -Yea right. One time I had to correct an installer there because he told a guy that his subs were SVC 4-ohms and they were wired in series for a 2-ohm load. I was like "Are u Stupid they would be in parallel for a 2-ohm load" He just stood there for a while acting like he was doing calculations and then he goes"Yea your right" Lol those guys sometimes.

basically good construction throught the sub makes it a good sub, more watts doesnt neccissarily make it better, it can, but it doesnt always. for example if you take an audiobahn sub, thats rated at 1000 watts rms i think it is and compare it to like a Ti or somen that is 750 rms, i would take the eclipse

Ya watts arent everything. You also should look at the materials used to make it, the motor strength, and the Xmax. JL W6v2 are only rated at about 400 watts RMS but they would dominate that same audiobahn that subfan is talking about

yea thats true, but it makes them sound bad, and it gives stress points in it making the sub last about half as long as other subs, and restricting its maxumum xmax

yeah that amp should push them subs fine if there 4ohm subs wire them to 2ohm
if u wire both subs toghter into 2 ohm to the amp that will bring the amp to pushing more power to the subs. but be careful that will make the subs kick a__
