tha great p- idk if you were talking to me about how long i have had my subs and different things but i got mine installed roughly in march. I have only had the truck since december. and i have no idea on db's im pushing. I mean its plenty for me and i have owned subs like these before. Now the L7's will hit more db's and will get where u want wit the 140db's b/c they are ff and the box was made for tech12volt!!! Now for those other subs you posted, i dont see anything wrong with them, the big thing is to make sure the right air space is used and dont over power shallow mount subs, i figured that out, i blew two different sets, thankfully i got them really cheap from a friend but still sucked!!! i love kicker and they have never let me down. L7's are definetly awsome though had one in my taco before this truck and it would bang!!!! just one 12" L7!!!

Yes, those would be great if you want that much Bass, just be sure to wire the subs correctly, are you using a mono block amp?

What I would do to get all your answers in one swoop, contact Crutchfields Tech Support, they have helped me out in the past, they have alot knowledge and have access to a wide range or resources. They also have a subwoofer fitment guide, for a KC I assume you don't have much space, I actually have a CC so I have a little bit more working room. I would recommend a downfiring enclosure. You can tell if your amp is mono if there is only one set of input out terminals. A mono block will work great with two 2 ohm subs. But give crutchfield a quick call and see what they can tell you, won't hurt any.

I agree with everything he said for specific questions you can contact them. but the only thing i am not agreeing with is the downfiring box. I had it and you will not like it and just doesnt give the hitting like you are wanting. I say a uf or a ff box for sure!!

That link i gave you in that email, they have another box i think that is 100 dollars and it would work with those subs perfectly but its downfiring also! im just not a fan of downfiring but its a cheap box and its made well! like i said thats the box i have but converted it into an uf box and like it alot more!!

It's all really just a matter of taste and what you want and knowing the dynamics of how subwoofers work. If your the type who drives with the windows down all the time and wants the world to hear your bass, use an UF box or FF box, if you want to keep the sound in the cab with the windows down sunroof open, use a DF box

I def want it to carry lol....Ive got so many opinions Im not sure what to do...

Ive never heard Alpine Type R's but Ive heard they were good and Im getting alot on these Kicker CVR's in a FF & ported box, but doesnt the Kickers need alot of air space, even for shallow mounts, if thats the case those wouldnt be a very good choice with the limited air space that I'll have in the KC.

There are alot of tips and tricks for shallow mount subs. Have you ever seen when they put Poly-Fil inside a box or know the reason they do it? It's to trick the subs into thinking there is more air volume inside the box that there really is. The sound waves bounce push through the air space to the back of the box and fire back to the sub and out, this creates the bass. When there is small space, it's quicker to bounce and gives you more of a HIT/SHAKE sensation instead of that DEEEP Vibration and sound. With the polyfil, it takes longer for the sound waves to reach the back of the box tricking the sub into thinking there is more space to travel through.

Ive narrowed it down to 2 subs....

Either the Alpine SWR 1043D or the DC Audio Level 3.....more likely going with the Alpine's, just worried about them fitting and/or the box sticking out past the seats, as they'll have to be FF =/

Anyone ever installed these subs, opinions?
