alrite right now i have 4 15' in memphis PR subs and my friends wants me to trade my subs and box for his 4 12in kicker l7's ported. which would be louder and i would have 3000 watts rms to his system if we traded and my current setup i had 1200 watts rms. thanks. also how would those l7's sound in a sealed box?

L7s suck. keep the memphis subs and port them if you want more bass.

I had 2 L7 12's in a slot ported box and the hit harder than my friends 4 jl audio 15 wo's in a sealed box it made him cry. l7's dont have the best sq but they will hit in the right box. If u like what u hear do whatmakes your ears happy.  I have 3 memphis 10's in my truck for the time being ( truck was stolen and stripped) am going back to 4 L7's in slot box at end of year when i get all my equipment together.

Yes enclosure can make or break whole system.The boxes that memphis recommend  dont seem to do to well ive made a few of them. But the boxes kicker recommend have all done very well for spl output. ive built about all of their slotted boxes and have tried many different subs in them even memphis and they have done very well. My last one was the 6 cu. ft one for a memphis 15. the guy i made it for had 4 memphis 12s and he said he thought the one 15 was louder than the four 12s. another happy costomer.U can look at kicker spec on their site just download manual.

If you just want to be loud then definitly go with the L7's.  There SPL is much better than the Memphis ones.  Memphis will have way better SQ though.
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

i think the 4 ported would do better for SPL. if you could i would get a 18" solo X   a ported box built to spec. put 5000 RMS on it . that would be LOUD!  i heard one of those subs running off to KX 1200.1's in an explorer and i was impressed. the sub was underpowered with those amps BTW.

ya idk though daily driver wise that would suck. i made my decision i think. 6 12in L7's sealed. it will be aobut 2 cubic foot each seperate chamber for each one. ill put a memphis 1500D to each set of 2. how do you guys think this should sound spl wise? do you guys think i could hit higher than a 144 on the new term lab cuz thats what i hit on my last system? thanks
