sorry cant help you on the dealers in canada   but maybe some of the guys on the fourm that are from up there will chime in
The L7 isnt a SQ sub at all but it can be reasonable clean if put inb the right enclsure
I would go with the 12" models and put them in a 3.75-4.0 cu ft box with a 2.25 x 14 x 18 slot port

The new Kicker CVX might be better suited for you

What do you mean it can "move fast enough"
It is a misconception that a 15 cannot hit as "fast" or as "tight" as a 10 or 12 inch woofer

what he means by it not moving fast enough is that the sub is sluggish....it can only handle really really low frequencies, and won't really give you any range or precision.

Check out the MTX 9500. Before you judge that, go to mtx.com, they explain how many ways it's better than the L7 and JL W7. Much less expensive also.

We know EXACLTY what wildchildbmx6 meant, but he was misapplying it, AND using it in FAR too general a method. That it why the link was provided. That is a vERY good paper, that you should probably read, too, imseth85. While the Kicker probably WILL sound like crap in an "SQ" installation, we, here at the12volt, will try to educate, and let people know that there is FAR more to car audio than what the salesmen at BestBuy try to teach everybody.
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."
