I am debating between 2 JL Audio 18w3's or 4 15" CVR's. The JL subs are 4 ohm and the Kicker subs are 2 ohm. Either system I would have it connected to a Kicker ZX2500.1 amplifier. Also the enclosure will be a wall. This is going into a 98 Explorer. Any ideas/information on which subs would be the best sounding and loudest would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would think that the 4- cvr's would be louder... more cone movement. but there are other factoer involved...
With the cvr's you could do the voice coils wired in series, speakers wired in parallel
= 1 ohm load
So I would go with the CVR's... gonna need electrical upgrades for that amp if you haven't all ready done so. L8R

i wouldnt get either...if the JLs are dual 4...that would be a 1 ohm load. if the 4 CVR15s are dual 2s...that would be a 1 ohm load.

the 2500 is 2 ohm stable.

whats your budget?

My budget for the amp is $750. For the subs I was planning on a total of $800. I already have my electrical system upgraded. I have one JL 18 right now and was wondering if I should add another one or put the Kicker 15's in. What I was planning to do on the wiring to the amp for the JL's was just in a series instead of parallel so then the amp would be running them at 4 ohm stable, which would be 625 watts to each sub. I am open to other options for systems that would be better than this and still in my price range (total of $1600). Thanks.

What about 4 15" Audioque SD2.5's? It'll be $600+shipping.

I have a 200 amp alternator and a yellow top battery just for the system. Where can the Audioque subs be purchased from? Thanks.

4 SD2.5 15" on a ZX2500.1 would be like whoa.


Install is VERY important.

So would the Audioque subs be louder and still maintain sound quality compared to the JL and Kicker subs? I have never heard or seen the Audioque subs before.
