you could fit that 15 there too. Your box would be tall but it is doable lol. I personally won't go the kicker route.

But then I have to buy a box... Just to sell it down the road. I've been trying to sell the skar sub. $120 and I have no biters. Need money to get the subs and amp I'm wanting ordered. Think the kicker sub would be an easier sell.

If you lived near me I'd give you $100 for the sub. But you're probably right about the kicker being an easier sell. People still think kicker is the best lol.

Lunch box for size. I'll probably get the kicker and use it for a bit in place of the single portion of the rear seat. And then sell it. For some reason people praise the L7. They aren't bad but aren't my top choice. I can get more money out of that than I can the 15.

Trading the 15 for the kicker. Gonna use it in the truck in place of the single rear seat. Gotta get an amp.

So a $399 (USD) alternator after shipping and exchange is costing me $640 (CAD)

Would not have bought it if didn't get a very nice return this year.

Think i'm just going to have to use some 2/0 (maybe 3/0?) welding cable bought locally to offset the cost of the alt.

Picked up the kicker. Sounds good. Will be an easy sell and will be nice to have installed in the truck

Squares sell pretty easy. They pound. Can't beat the surface area.

You'll be surprised how loud it is in such a small cab

I used to have a 10 L7 and a 15 L5. Both sounded pretty good. Gonna save up and get the skar amp, wiring kit and then the big 3

And yeah, they sell easy and for a decent price. Not to bad of a deal. Hated giving up the 15. But there wasn't anything I could do with it.

----------

I wish I had an extra amp laying around. Gonna have to get the skar amp ordered. Maybe I'll have some money with my tax return

I'm so anxious to get my system. I'm probably going to wait until after my vacation at the end of the month. I haven't had real audio in so long it hurts
