Arrow 12" Alpine Type X vs 12" Kicker L7


Has anybody had experience with these 2 subs? More than likely the L7 will be louder due to cone area but do you think it will be a big noticeable difference? I have 2 L7s now and i love the output but i want to run 3 12's and since the L7s need big boxes i wont be able to fit 3 properly.

I would say personally to go with the L7, You would be much happier with them, my cousin had a 10" Type X and it really wasnt that loud and from what I remember they like alot of air space as well. Also if you wanna get louder look into the type R or a Kicker CVX,

Default Re: 12" Alpine Type X vs 12" Kicker L7

really it depends on the box. i have tested the L7 2006 model in a 3.0 cub box tuned to 38 hz and loved it tryed the alpine type x 12 in a 1.8 cubic foot box tuned to 38 hz and didnt notice a deference except for more sq plus the box was designed the way apline specifyed i myself own to apline type xs in a custom 4.0 cubic box tuned to 38 hz and love it to death but L7s are really about the same except for a little lower SQ but remeber the L7s were designed for more spl unlike the type x designed for SPL and SQL so its up to you which one in my opinion you might want to stay with the L7s and just do a nice custom box and tune it correctly that way you get the most out of the sub

In my opinion the Type X is for SQ, and the L7 is for SPL. As mentioned above the Type R is more for SPL.

I could agree even though apline type X was supposed to be comp it was more designed for SQ L7 was designed for sq and SPL unlike its big brother SOLO X - ALL SPL!!! YEAH!
