Thanks
I don't know if you've seen this already, but maybe this helps

Just before I read that I flipped up my seat and found that. The equalizer(part that joins the cable) is twisted,causing the rear cables to pop out. That explains not having tension on the handle.
I have to see if I can get the equalizer by itself or if I need the whole cable.

Thanks for the quick reply.

So today, I did this:

BEATIFUL!

IMO 1/0 gauge is overkill unless you are running dual battery's or a high watt system. I prefer 8g as it doesn't draw as much juice from my battery. But if I was running 2 amps then I would go that big.

The L7 series sounds awesome. A buddy of mine has only one 12" L7 and it slams but isn't distorted like some other subs IMO, just clean crisp bass.

Well yeah. 2 solos will
Def need 1/0 gauge. Those are serious wattage. What amps are you going to run?

Warhorse? Lol

Well i looked into getting a Hifonics ZRX2000.1D
( http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...RX2000.1D.html )
the L7's are 750 rms each so that would be 1500 rms and this amp is 2000 rms so it would leave it some wiggle room to not run at full capacity and last longer. I was told it would be enough to power them but i am still trying to get a list of everything i want and need before i buy it all

Just saw kicker has 1000w on amazon for under $350. That would be the way I would go (just me) Match up nice with the solos and the 1000w would draw less on your battery. Either way will be hella loud!
