The Kickers are the way to go here- they move more air because naturally a 15 inch square has more area than a 15 inch circle- thus more air moved =greater spl =LOUDER. The only thing that might get some equality between the two is if the db drive round sub has a far greater xmax that is the linear movement of the cone from start to full excursion-IF the db drive has drastically larger xmax than it could possibly outperform the L7 because of greater cone excursion which also =more air moved=louder---- haha thats a tricky one but ya got me wondering too so let me know what you find out please-Ive always been a kicker fanatic so im probably biased towards their products-never heard nothing bad about db drive though either im in salt lake city i dont know of anywhere out here that even carries their products so i have nothing to reference by except kicker L7's kick asssssssssss

I dont have the blast port wire and it wont play.where can i find the wire?


  • BLAST Port (Bass Level And Signal Transfer) Provides Remote Bass Level Control and control signal transfer between multiple SX amplifiers

  • Here is the manufacturer's accessory page to the remote: http://www.kicker.com/zxrc

    Here is one on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/KICKER-2010-10-ZXRC-AMP-AMPLIFIER-REMOTE-BASS-CONTROL-/360328112100?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e53aa7e4

    And here is a note from Kicker on how to make a control yourself for strapping multiple amps together: I have two or more Kicker SX or KX subwoofer amplifiers. I don' t want to use all those separate bass level controls. Is there a way to make them all work with a single Kicker control knob?
    Yes. You can visit your local Radio Shack or home improvement store and purchase an RJ-11 modular adapter. You then plug the sub level cables from the individual amplifiers into the adapter. Then run a cable from the adapter to a single Kicker remote knob. All amps will now work with a single knob.

    How to hook up two 10" kicker cvr for best sound


    If they are single voice coil and are 4 ohm you can bridge your amp and run both speakers off of it so your amp sees a 2 ohm load....better bass that will hit harder....(series wiring) look it up on google....

    Wireing two dual 4 ohm kicker cvr 15s on a memphis pr1000 at a 1 ohm load. I trying to get these kickers to hit harder. Do I need a bigger amp or what?


    CVR series do not have large power handling capabilities.
    Your subs will melt before the amplifier is used to its full potential.
    If the subs arent in a ported enclosure - do that.
    They both handle 500w rms - so the pr1000 is perfect.
    bass response is all in the enclosure!

    Knocking noise with my kicker compvr 15"


    comp VR 15s are rated @ 500W RMS 1000Peak.
    The lanzar vibe amplifier is 2 x 600W RMS at 4 OHMS 2 x 1200W MAX at 4 OHMS 1 x 2400W MAX at 4 OHMS Bridged 2 x 1000W at 2 OHMS RMS.
    Your subs are single 4 ohm subs.
    If your subs are wired stereo, they both are seeing 600W. (more than the rated RMS)
    Chances are, you have them wired parallel to a 2 ohm mono load - of which that amplifier is not rated. In theory, it will produce about 2000W @ 2 ohm mono for a short period of time.
    Your amplifier is too powerful for your subs. Turn down the gain setting to 3/4 or purchase better subs. Also be sur the subs are inthe proper enclosure. It sounds as if they are excurting past their linear x-max and colliding with the rear bump plate. This will cause damage down the road if left as is.

    I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe


    kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.
