Given the subs you are talking about I would def going with the L7's. :D They will put the Type R's to shame from what I have heard.
I would say just stick with the 12's I am sure you will be more than happy with them.

Good luck and take and let us know how things turn out.

I had 2 Alpine 12" R's, and they were amazing!
I never heard the others though, so I can't really say? I can't imagine it sounding much better? Maybe thiers other reasons I don't know of?

W'sup Man, Nice Choice in equipment ;)

I'm wondering if you plan on getting the Full 1000 watts from that RF Amp? What I mean is in order for you to do that you gotta get Dual 2 ohm Voice Coil sub. An L7 12 wired @ 1ohm is gonna Rock, and thats an understatement


Spec's for that amp can be found here: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=14333

Just make sure you get an enclosure made to spec for that sub and the right "Stuff" for your eletrical system, because @ 1 ohm that amp is gonna draw ALOT of power to push that L7 :D

Hope this helps, post pics when it's all installed :cool:

Well the reason im askin about thiz is cause i installed it in a friendz 2005 5.7 jeep grand cherrokee..That s*it is so loud that it broke his sunroof...it did not wanna open or close..hahaha...so we took it out and brought it back to the dealership..I wired it the same way 2 ohms but how would it perform in a sealed box in my trunk is my question...cause we put his in a ported box and i put the subsonic filter cause it might blow...i know if i put it in a sealed box i will not turn on the filter..im gonna chain the trunk down...I got my electrical system ready...i got an optima battery and will add a 4 farad capasitor since my friends got a 2 farid and it still dims the headlights so i say itz a good amp!
i wanna keep it as compact as possible...That is the amp of my choice...but i been also lookin at this unit called "Alpine MRD-M1005"but i still want the rockford...i wanna wire it to the stock system headunit...to give a sleeper look but i know itz gonna be hard. cause of interferance and it might not be clear but i connected my friends unit to his stock navigation stereo...and its good too...so i might pick up another radio at the same time!so give me some opinions on head units...i been lookin into pioneer and alpine...but i might just connect it to the stock delco unit with a preout boaster or a sound processor!cause i like the sleeper look!lolz

I would STRONGLY suggest that if youre going to be running a T1001BD amp, buy yourself 2 RF T115D4, I am running that setup myself you wont be sorry. Im even willing to make you a video

I'll agree with you on the "Sleeper" look, it's sweet. As far as head unit's I preffer Pioneer, but there are other Name Brands to consider( Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, etc.) In regards to the 4 farad Cap, I would strongly suggest to ditch that and get a 200 amp alt & do the "Big 3". those 2 things will help your electrical system Alot! Ported or Sealed, which ever it is you do decide to go with for an enclosure you'll maximize your possibilities if you port your rear deck so the bass can enter the cabin, instead of stayin in the trunk.

Hope this helps :cool:

But itz so hard for me 2 let go of the stock stereo...lol...i love the stock look and u should see how people will not even mess with the car thinkin there is a system in there...and about the alternator i got a 200amp powermaster alternator and i was thinkin 2 put a underdrive pully on it...also Only thing i don't like about stock is since i got the line in and output converter in the back it has interfearence so imma relocate that right behind the stock radio and im also upgrading to 2 gauge or 0 gauge wiring and i got my remote line for the amp connected to the fuse box to use my stock delco unit...what else would u recommend?

you could just remove the 6X9's and leave the grills stock. That would help promote pressure transfer a bit.
