    You might wana post in the audio section, you will probably get more respnses there. Anyway, I have a 12 inch L7 Solobaric Kicker Square sub that hits like a 15 inch and sounds great.

    No need for pics, just in a Kicker vented box in the back of the truck. Sounds great in a giant metal box! :D

    I have 2 12" Rockford Fosgate Punch's in the back and they hit real hard. I am in audio comp. all the time and I have owned many different types of subs but these Rockfords are my fav. My new subs are sitting in my basement :D 2 Jvc 10's.

    My buddy has 3 L7's in a little dodge colt. It is sick the car should blow it's body panels off. Solobaric's are real good. My second set of subs were round 2 10" round solobarics. I loved them until they hit way to hard and fried.

    I have 2 MTX audio 4000 series in a thunderform box under my dodge truck seat, pushed with a M350 class D alpine amp. My butt can make louder noises after I eat Taco Bell. :doah:

    Not in a truck, but I run a single 12" DVC Kicker L7 (in a large slot port box) wired at 1ohm powered with a MMATS D200hc in the daily driver and it hits very very hard !!! I recomend having a local car stereo shop build a custom box behind the seat.[​IMG] [​IMG] I just swapped head units today. [​IMG] It's very impressive what a difference that made.

    when it comes to subs, there are only 2 words you need to know



    Rockford ... and ... Fosgate.


    Seriously though, I run 2 rockford stage 1's in my DD and they thump HARD. They are being pushed by a Rockfod P3001, and an Eclipse CD5425 head (deck).


    if you are going to do a full system, dont skimp on the deck, it makes all the difference in the world.

    Rottenfurd Fosbreak ??? If I was made of money I'd have TREO Engineering SSX's or MMATS Juggernauts. But for a more resonalbly priced sub, it's hard too beat the Kicker L7.

    That's why I mentioned having a car stereo shop build a custom box behind the seat. I would think they could build a box for those 10" XTR's.

    Fosgate is the only way to go man :deal: , they have different levels of subs available I believe the best is pro, however I have the standard one's (best buy) in an isometric box. 2 10's that hit so FN hard :saweet: I had to turn the gain all the way down on my Fosgate 200 amp. I had these in and Xterra and could only turn the gain up 1/2 way. these are in my daily driver and I can rattle my rearview mirror so hard it will fall straight down. FOSGATE :bow:

    Yeah we have a sytem in our Xterra that is Rockford Fosgate that came stock with it that hits pretty hard for a stock setup. :bow: Rockford Fosgate seems to be more popular with the HiFi crowds. :confused:
