REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the L7 has to be broken in!!!!! dont throw it in your car and crank it to the max, it will take about 2 weeks to be broken in.
THAT'S CRAP... No woofer needs to be broken in. WFO from the day I first turn it on!
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

vtecnique,
That amp isnt going to put out 900watts...you Might get 800 if you're lucky...same thing with the kicker, you'de be better off finding somewhere around a 1200w amp...Hifonics has a good 1200w amp thats fairly cheap...
If you want to compete, you should be ready to spend more than $350 on a setup...Im not saying you cant hit high numbers with a cheap setup, but things happen...cheap subs blow, cheap amps fry...make sure your equipment can take a beating before you fry your daily...I learned that the hard way SQ vs. SPL? - Page 2 -- posted image.

Blowing up in a car accident doesnt worry me, as long as I'm putting out some major dB's when I die...

neh, i guess i was just looking for something to start building and add onto it over the winter. i was looking at the hifonics but have never heard them. and i don't mind spending a lil more, but that was the base price i was trying to stay around. when i first decided to do the 2 15"s (before making the decision about the L7) i was suggested to go with the power acoustik amp, so i stuck with it just for price.

meh... what suggestions do you guys have, since you're all seasoned in this area? im really looking for something tahts just a solid starting ground, upgradable, and hits hard. plus i tend to do my own installs when i can- minus box building.

That amp is probaby 900 wrms @2ohm, not 4ohm...so a dual 2 ohm sub won't be good.

all but the budget was put in my 1st post.

1998 buick lesabre custom.

6 1/4 in the doors (i fi remember correctly) and tweeters above them in the arm rest portion of the door, 6x9s in the rear deck. all stock speakers at the moment....

sony head unit. one of the better models (if there is such a thing). the thing i like about sony head units is the ease of staging the sound level with the DSO option (does that make sense?) i'd like to replace it with the pioneer AVC-N2 but it's not my priority right now. once i get into mobile video and start playing around with screens and the like, that's going to be my 1st upgrade.

4 GA wiring to a crappy sony amp ive had for close to 3 years. it's been to hell and back and just keeps working. so i figured i'd put it to use for the time being. its powering 2 12" alpine type Es in a...oh...lets say small sealed box. it hit decent and very clear but some deeper bass sounds distorted. i want the best of both worlds. can it happen?

as for a budget, after xmas time will be best time to start getting crazy. before then i just want to lay a foundation and do a good alarm and minor mods. i guess price isnt really an option, but as always a penny saved is a penny earned

there ya go-
