Question kicker L5 or L7

Just wondering what you opinions are on these two subs.
How much better is the L7?

Well, the L7 twelves are only rated 150 RMS more than the L5, at 750 watts. Ive never dealt with them personally, nor do i know how much they are, but if you have the money, go for the L7. If not, go for the L5. They are both very loud subs.

My one friend has 1 12" L5, and my other 2 15" L7's. Get the L7's, you wont regret it.

how much power do you have?

If it's anything below 700-800w then I'd save the cash and go with an L5

Love those amps....

Like the Orion 2150SX that was around at the same time, way under-rated. I saw one benched at a little over 900wrms @4ohm mono.....

Should work great if you put 1 amp per L5....

I've run L5's for the last few years and totally love them. they get LOUD and sound pretty good IMO as well.
L7's are nice but cost a good premium for an extra 150w power handling
