I even know how much most of the time a recone is for a 12" L7 that Kicker charges. $130 (including shipping)! Seen it happen so many times. The L7 is built just like the L5, only a little beefier here and there. If you put the L7 through a torture test, something will fail, seen it everytime. Another bad thing about the L7 is it requires HUGE ported boxes to get as loud as it does. Hearing a 12" L7 in a 2cu-ft ported then a 3cu-ft ported box made all the output difference in the world. To think though I could have TWO 12" Type-R's in that same 3cu-ft ported airspace and get WAY LOUDER too. It doesn't make for a very good truck sub.
