newbie trying to get sql

I haven't really set any ssystem up since the 90's,and just now learning about ohm's and stuff,i got f150 club cab,i came across some kickers cheap this week,i got like 3 different one's all this week,well tey sounded like dodo,so i popped the sealed kicker classic solo back in with some pilot house speakers,

I got kicker 15'' L5 dual 2ohm,looks like 2002 model,i'm not sure on watts,what amp to use,all the amps im using not pushing it.

I got kicker 12'' l7 dual 4ohm wired to 2ohm.it kicked pretty hard,knocked seal out my back window.

I got 2 of the newer solo classic 15''s in sealed box 750watts rms,tey sound decent with my pilot house speakers.,im really wanting to know more about the l5's and l7's,like could i do sealed or bandpass,there mounted in the cheaper non kicker box's,and wondering how many watts these actually will take.right now i have memphis 500.1 pushing one kickers,then boss 1500 pushing other kicker.i got couple more amps,trying to get decent amp to push them at 1ohm,

I am new at this,i want decent sound,but want to vibrate walls also,so maybe i need eq or something also,.

kicker subs are not renowned for having alot of SQ although the l5`s and l7`s make great bass. I heard a system in a jaguar that had a l7 buried in the spare tire area running planet audio amps and they sounded pretty decent. IMO, they cost too much for what they do but if you got a good deal on some, pound them HARD...

Looks like i blew the seal on the l7.and l5 loose too,i was thinking about making a wood seal that will fit all around the surronds,what type glue would be best,i was thinking hot glue just incase they needed recoiled.
