As soon as i get situated in my new job, im playing with the idea of dumping my Kicker S12L7, custom box, crunch 400.2. Then rewiring the whole truck with 4 guage wire, purchasing 2 RF Power Hx2's getting a custom box built and powering them with a 700s or higher topped with a cap. Now i plan on hearing a few more systems with kicker vs.:stickpoke rockford but at the moment i dont notice a huge difference between the two brands besides price. Can i get some comments on if i should stick my money into another S12L7 and getting a kicker amp to power the two subs, Or should i go rockford...?? Please imput comments, and realtime experience with the two brands, I want it LOUD, CLEAR, and longlasting. Thanx :dunno:

i think you should stick with the kicker you got now. its your amp thats the problem, no offense but crunch sucks 12 inch donkey schlong. your feeding that sub dirty distorted wattage which is VERY bad. and plus you're not getting any where near what that amp claims. if its an 800 watt amp expect maybe 3 or 400 watts....get the idea. get a new amp and keep the L7.

Phat just as an indication as to how much power a crunch amp puts out I have one (rated at 400 x2 @4ohms) bridged @4 ohms they claim aprox. 1200 watts, pushing 2- 8 ohm(wired parallel to make the 4 ohm load at the amp)Rockford 8" truck boxes that are 10 years old, at least, and the gain is set as high as it goes and the 8's don't stress till the amp starts clipping and I'm not bragging about how tough Rockford speakers used to be built!

The 700s wont push 2 12" Solo's. Check out the BD 1000's or even the 1500.

I have a 500x (4ch) and a 500s (on a 12" HX2; when the box is done anyway). :thumbup:
