I'm assuming you're not paying MSRP for these items. For the money, you can get a monster setup with an RE XXX powered by a t20001bd that will pretty much be more powerful than most subs on the road. As for the components, why do you need two of them? A Focal k2p powered by JL 450/4 would be a better choice and can be had for much cheaper. You don't really need components for the back if your front is already good. Again, these are suggestions. But GL with your system.

well I was going with kappa perfects but I hear they are really bright..... then it was gonna be boston acoustics but i decided to go with the kickers cause i know a friend with them. I am still not decided on the amps or sub but am thinking of just going kicker all the way through. And I dont want a bigger sub because I do not need any crazy bass and it will still hit pretty hard.

If you're trying to have that L7 get loud, you really need a much larger woofer amp than the little ZX750.1 you are looking at now. The ZX1500.1 would be a good choice. Also, you will need to upgrade your battery & wiring to handle the additional current draw.

Yea wow, you could spend your money better on different equipment. For that much money in speakers you could have AWESOME Focals or Hertz. Id go with JL or Genesis amps and you'd be set.

You mean besides their car right?.....lol

Maybe for some people that is true but if you pay full price for car audio you are a fool!
If you buy car audio electronics on ebay your a fool. Full price sucks but buying from an unauthorized deal is throwing money down the drain.

agreed, im perfectly willing to pay retail, or close to it, to buy it authorized AND Local, I like the peace of mind, I like getting my stuff then and there, I also like easy return policies and easy service in my own area with a person I can talk to face-to-face, stimulating the local economy is also a plus




ON TOPIC: not a fan of Kicker, at all, in fact I personally avoid them like the plague

I am really not looking to get the sub too oud because I am not a huge fan of a lot of bass and stuff so the 750 should be good enough I still might go with a higher one though. And the speakers peak rms is 100 so the 90 to each from the other amp will be enough.

I have a 10" alpine type-r in a fiberglassed box and its more than enough bass. For what its worth, I really dont find any reason to get an aftermarket deck if you had a premium system. The premium HU is awesome for adding onto.
