The Audio Control unit is a considerably better built unit. PC boards are millitary spec. Thick and hearty! will not self destruct like alot of chinese stuff... The epicenter is a phenominal piece of electronics for anyone who loves bass as well as Rock. older recordings lack the intensity in the lower end response by comparason to todays "pop" music. A suggestion though, if you listen to Rap, this unit will cause your sub to over excurt and wear out quickly if not blow. I can't really speak to the Soundstream unit. I was a Soundstram Dealer when it was still a US company. All that's left of the original product is the name. Hope this helps

I have 2 different subs in one box, a 12" MTX thunder and a 12" Kicker CVR. the kicker is a dual voice coil while the MTX I dont believe is. Can I use one amp for this set up? And how would it be wired?


im guessing both speakers are 4 ohms ..mtx 4ohms and kicker dual 4ohms..now if your amp can go down to 1 ohm wiring the kicker dual coils in parallel (2ohms) and the mtx connected together (4ohms) should leave you with a final impedance between 1 and 2 ohms ...i suggest you use one or get another

I need help hooking my kicker cvr 12 to my direct 600 amp


Is the sub a single voice coil or dual???? If its a single, just bridge sub to amp....(+ of one channel and the - of the other) amp should show where to bridge with a diagram near speaker outs. If its a dual voice coil, then run one voice coil to the left channel and one voice coil to the right.

I have 2 12 inch kickers and have a solid box in my mustang. would it sound better if it was ported?


Kicker speakers always require very large boxes (you're looking at 12 cubic feet for both), when ported. Ported boxes are very sensitive to box size, port tuning etc, so it's probably best to leave it sealed, as they are far more leniant, and sealed boxes are usually 1/2 size of ported boxes. You would get less bass when ported than with sealed (because ported boxes must be bigger to match the sealed ones).

If you wish to experiment with the bass response of speakers, download winISD, and put your speakers in, see what size boxes give you what.

Got a 12"kicker L74ohm sub and sony xm-D9001GTR mono amp


Hello juan_penaloz,

The Kicker L7 has an RMS power range of from 50-750 watts and a maximum power handling capability of 1,500 watts so your Sony amp will power it OK. A more powerful monoblock like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Kicker 08ZX750.1 would provide even more power and could operate safely at 2ohms.

You have the voice coils wired properly for the Sony amp. It's OK to have the sub impedance higher, but you definitely do not want it lower than the 4ohms the amp is rated at in bridged mode.

Hope this helps.

According to MTX they need 1.25 cubic ft per sub sealed and 2 cubic feet vented. Most pre-fab boxes will work for those subs.

Best sub For RF T10001


There is no "best" its a matter of opinion, and fabrication. I have installed $75 subs in the properly fabricated and tuned enclosure that sound like $300 sub in a pre-fabbed enclosure. For volume, you will need a vented enclosure. For sound quality, a small sealed. Both have pros and cons. SoloX 10 is 2500W rms 5000W peak.
Kicker is plastic. Solobaric may be your best choice in such a small space, however soundsplinter makes an 8" RLi sub that will kick a$$ in the proper enclosure.
When looking to buy, compare x-max : as this is the linear distance the cone will move. More movement = more air displacement = more volume.
