    I have 2 12in Kicker L5's powered an Infinity reference amp at 2ohms/1300watts rms.

    Im going to be selling it soon and want something that hits even harder and with better sound quality.

    My question is what can I get that will outperform my previous setup for under $1500 not including the box?

    Theres too many freakin choices and I dont know what performs...

    I have looked at a few subs from memphis audio. One of their 12' subs dented one of my friends trunks. I believe the sub he had was from the LVS series.

    I recently suggested a $1500 setup in my car audio group on myspace. The guy was lookin for some components and subs so I'll do a quick copy n' paste.

    "Subs (all new):
    If you're interested in the Soundsplinter's let me know so I can tell you which ohm config to go with because you dont wanna overpower them and blow em. I know a guy who had two of these sealed on a US Amp MD2 and hit 143 on music (not sure which mic but I THINK the new TL)

    (2) 12" Fi.Q (dual 2) - $520
    or
    (2) 12" TC Sounds TC-2000 (dual 3) - $596
    or
    (2) 12" SoundSplinter RL-p (dual 4, maybe dual 4)- $460

    Sub Amp (both used):
    Geoff is selling an IA 20.1 for a very good deal. Its easily able to run at .5 daily without any problems. There is also an Orion 2500d that is a great amp and can run .5 ohms daily no problem. I sold mine to a guy who is in this group. You can find a bunch of those on eBay or various car audio forum. Theyre roughly the same price as the IA 20.1's, maybe a little cheaper, but I just saw one on caraudio.com in the For Sale section for 325+shipping. I'll be recommending either of these two.

    IA 20.1 - $425-450
    Orion 2500d - $325-450

    Componets (used):
    I think Peter's QSD's will go quite well and I don't know the exact price but its around 300 (give or take possibly).

    MB Quart QSD 216 - $300

    Components Amp:
    There are many to choose from. Kicker has some great amps and they seem to be ALWAYS underrated, meaning they put out more power than they actually state. I recommend one of the following Kicker amps.

    KX 650.4
    KX 850.4
    ZX 650.4
    ZX 850.4

    I believe the ZX is the new models. I found them on ebay both Refurbished and New with a price range between $175 - $250.

    I think your setup will sound nice and loud with this and its all under 1500. This is only my recommendation, the final choice is up to you."
