what would be better 2 12" type r alpines(sealed box) or 1 15 kicker L7 in a ported box either way hooked up to the same amp...lets say a mtx 81000d
please respond cause im about to buy!!!!
With that type of power the alpines would smoke realy quick.
The l7 would fare much better...
But even then, be careful with the gain.[/b][/quote]
The Alpines have nice baskets and cover for the magnet, but the actaully quality of the VC, cone, surround are lacking a bit more then I care for, while they aren't bad subs I'd be more on the side of a few other types of subs more so then them.... they work good and all but endurance wise, giving more then what they are rated for is a BAD IDEA especially in smaller sealed enclosures.... at least from my experience
Jeremy could fill you in on options for your money, jsut as well as me, that and I don't like to type forever
also better amps for money then MTX, just to say......
my best suggestion is to state your money you have, and what kinda 50/50 60/40 SQ/SPL you want, and what your putting it in.... then it makes itself really aparant to what would be best to any one trying to help
