kicker is a better option if u have the money to burn it on. check it out and see what suits your taste and budget. sound stream and audio bahn have made it in the country too check out on those as well

kicker is awesome. kicks alpine any day when it comes to subwoofers. i recommend to get a soloaric if you are buying kicker not the comp series or any of the round subs.
a good solobaric 12" or 15" will be outta the world

well the kicker basic ones will be no good believe me. & do not leave the alpine type R 15s. i have seen alpines smoking kickers. so how much you willing to spend? what you need exactly? 2 12s/1 15s?

agree with gamer... solobaric is the best the regular kickers are usless.

the solobaric L5 will cost you around 12k while the solobaric L7 will cost 16-17k each.

I dont think your pioneer amp will be able to drive even the single L5 Kicker sub.

you need a minimum 500rms monoblock to drive a solobaric. this will set you back by at least 15k for a good amp alone
