why does everyone put up dayton. ive never heard of them. are they just that good or are they good for the price?? they look old but thats just the looks, how well do they perform?
The reason everybody puts up Dayton, is because they are EXCEPTIONAL quality woofers for the money. I have used (Gen1) Titanic 12's in my home system for about 10 years, now, powered by an Adcom GFA555, rated 450WPC, and I beat the HELL out of them.
Give them a try, I'm willing to bet you will be very impressed and surprised!
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."

i kinda took over this thread from that other guy lol. but yeah i am buying a 91 toyota cilica gt and want to put subs in it. im selling my old subs to help pay for this car because i wanted something louder for local comps. was looking at kickers just because i know they are good and LOUD!! at first since im low on cash and cant buy the whole system i want one sub and one amp. I DONT WANT CRAP. i was looking at one 12" L7 and an amp that can really push em. later i want to buy the same setup so i have two 12" subs. then upgrade the altinator when i get the other sub and amp. im looking to hit at least 145 db hopefully with the one and a lil more when i get the second. i was going to go out and buy an audiopipe 12" and amp to prove that it would be almost impossible to hit 149.9 db like that one guy lol. but yeah any ideas on amp or even other subs would be great.

jonathancullen, here is a very good affordable setup, that will get you going
(1) KX1200.1
Kicker 12" L5
I will garantee you can do 145db with that setup, unless your talking DB drag then it might be a little tough
But for any other organization I know it can do 145db
If you end up getting 2 subs with a 1200.1 I know of a box, that is capable of high 148-149 on one amp and nearly 152-153db on 2 1200's
I would point you in that direction, I have had exceptional luck with every kicker product I have laid my hands on.   If you have any more questions reguarding thier hear or boxes and setup, feel free to contact me via PM. or if you would like, if you PM me I will send you a phone # to reach me at

I think I'm going to go with the kicker S15L5. 

How does this sub compare to the RF P3 line, like the P315D2, assuming a rms of around 600w?

The rockfords will definately have more SQ, but theyre not gonna pound like that L5 will....
If you've got 800watts ive got a 15" TC Sounds TC-2000 that Ill sell you for $200...That subs has great SQ and pounds like no other...

ur scores are wayyy of if ur talking legal on the dash because that is the only score that matters.  1 L5 12 and 1200rms would have to be a great install but could happen.

2 12s and 2 1200 doing a 52-53 out of a trunk u must have some magic because last i checked 153.? was the loudest trunk in the world and that was alot more power. ..

If you read my signature It would be easy to figure out.
Before you dig yourself into the hole DjsCustoms did, go and do your research on me.   I will be found all over in the usaci fourms, and state record boards.   I also have scores from this years finals.
Dont worry to much I will be in DB drag next year as well. I can go legal, not a problem.   
Can You?
So, now that you have called me out, who are you?   What class do you run?
