A friend of mine went to CC today to buy a PS3(80GB). So as he is doing that I wonder over to the car audio section and there was a couple guy over there checking stuff out(of coures listing to the Kicker Solo Baric L5's). The the CC guy come over and one of the guys said I'll take 4 L5 12s(250each) and 4 ZX750.1(475each) for each sub. I said you know theres better for the money the guy that was buying said like WHAT. So I started naming AQ,RD,AA,Fi,SS etc. he said I've used most of those names and Kicker is hands down better than all^^^^^. So I ask him where did you get those names I mentioned above he said at his local shop(WRONG).

To make a long story short this dude payed $1000 for 4 L5 12s and $1900 for 4 ZX750.1s. $2900

You can't have an average without the extremes. Good or bad, they're part of the equation.



Be glad you're on the other side of the pendulum.

def not blowing it on garbage ...

there isnt a much better amp for the money ..

and l5s arent bad woofers ... if done correctly, dont usually sound great to a human ear but get plenty loud enough ...

circuit city is expensive because its all msrp or close to it ...

if thats with a full warranty .. which is direct swap out of those amps and subs ,... if thats including warranty .. its not so bad of a deal ...

are u serious bro ... ur gonna say its bad woofer? why is it a bad woofer explain that to me ... ur gonna tell me someones whos installed about 1000 l5s that its a bad sub ... if so then ur wrong man ... i never said they were a good sub .. but i never said they were a bad sub ... they perform when done correctly ...

u just love to think that ur mr high and mighty car audio dont ya ... cuz the guy didnt buy a DD woofer hes wrong for his purchase ... but isnt the first rule of sound quality and performance say that sound from your driver is subjective to ur ear , what sounds good to you might not sound good to another ... let people live their life ... if hes happy with it then why post some stupuid @$$ picture ...

There are TONS of good brands of car audio equipment (not just DD) that I recommend to people all the time....... square kickers aren't included cause they sound like azz.

He did get good amps, paid WAY too much though.




And I like posting stupid azz pictures.

mike the l5 and l7 arnt very good(not that you ever said they were but). they tend to fail easy. sure you said installed correctly but the people that buy those subs dont know much about car audio and tend to beat on them and all kinds of werid sh;t. if you installed 1000s of them i sure you have seen people come to you with a fucked up install. anyway they should make the sub durable so noobs wont keep breaking them.

and yes sq is subjective but some people just dont know because they havnt heard better.

I kinda see mike's point. If you are the type of person who only buys retail, then those prices arent too bad. Yea, he did spend wayyy to much compared to online, but look at any local dealer, or even best buy and american. Im not saying the L5's are good or bad, they just are what they are. There isnt many other subs you can get for $250 at a retail store (around by me anyways) that get as loud, but i guess If you want to be loud, and only loud, then they are the way to go.

Im still not saying the square kickers are good, as Ive seen many blowns one on ebay, but look at what that kids circumstances are and the price he paid compared to other brands at similair stores.
