Ok im a poor white person here... What else is new right? Ok well I have 2 Sony Xplod 12's from Wal-mart. Yes see I told you I was poor. $75 a sub :D Anywho I have an old school Profile California 3600. ITs a 3 channel 600 watt amp... I have no clue on the wattage it puts out to the 2 channels and the mono channel. I have the 2 xplods bridged, 4 ohm subs, in 2 sealed truck boxes. Ok now down to the question... I am a fan of the Kicker L7's. I have to be a fan, the guy who originated all of this subwoofer industry started it 20 miles from me and sold his idea of an "ass kicker" to Stillwater Designs... anyway should I dump these subs and get one 10 or 12 inch solo-baric and make one big ported box? I am suprised and so are a few of my friends on how the Xplods sound but damn, 1 JL 10W0 whooped my ass with a ported box in his S-Dime... Made me feel what real bass is like. What do you guys think? Sorry to ramble on

yeah, you should do that, but i dont know how well a ported box in a standard cab would work...they usually have to be decently big. Mine's a 5ft^3 box.

Right now I have 2 sealed boxes in there now... the bottom comes out to be 7 1/2 inches... Id like to have more room though.. maybe 2 clicks back but probably not possible

i am putting 1 12'' L7 in my reg cab... found out how to squeeze in a 3.5^3 ported without loss of seat space :p (considering it takes up the whole back portion)... it gonna be ported and if i need more i will just use poly fill, i suggest getting a better amp, the L7 is about 750 rms and that 600 isnt gonna be anywhere near its rms requirements....

What is the demensions of your box with the port size if I may ask? That would be some serious help. Yeah I know the amp wont push it too its full potential but its all I have... Thats why im thinking about selling my 2 xplods with the boxes for one of these bad L7's.

Anyone know the actual output rating of my California Profile 3600? I cant find it anywhere... Tried ebay and yahoo
