 is the kicker kx 2500.1 worth the money?

i have 3 12 inch solo baric L7's and im thinking about the kicker kx2500.1 for an amp. the problem is it cost so much money, is it really worth the sticker price of $1400?

$1400 is a little steep, they can be found for less. Go with the ZX2500.1 IMO for less than that as well. Shit, for $1400 you can have one hell of an amp that spits out more juice. I think the ZX2500.1 would be a sweet match for those subs as long as your final load gets down to 2 ohms, or just under.

the ZX2500.1 is probably one of the most efficient high power amps on the market. definatly a great amp for a street beater. i'm sure you can find them a tad cheaper somewhere.

that all depends on how you are going to wire the woofers, parallel or series, etc...... you might be better off just going with two subs in parallel (1ohm) instead of three in series/parallel (2.67ohm) the lower the impedance the louder the bass response will be IMO, just make sure your car has the power that the amp will ask it for :-)

well, the bass response is sub/enclosure dependent, has nothing to do with the amp or the load presented. as far as what the subs are wired to, it depends on the amp itself. if you wire to 2.67 on an orion 2500d, your not going to get as much power as the zx 2500.1 @ 2.67. the ZX is very good on the electrical system. a solid battery and the correct wiring is more than enough to suppport 1 of these, thats one of the reasons i recommend them in street applications.

The KX is a beast of an amp, my buddy just let one get stolen on EBAY for 550. 1400 is steap though. The KX I feel are better than the new ZX line, I have seen birth sheets up to 3590 on the KX. anything under a grand is worth it.

i'll have to talk to kicker, i believe the highest ever BS on the KX was 3090w. the ZX is more powerful ;)

I know someone you can get a brand new in Box Orion HCCA-D5000 From. Basically the same as last years Orion 2500D. It'll probably be around 550$ and is stable for daily driving @ .5 Ohms. AIM = HCCAFan He'll hook you up.

I-freaking-OLA??
I was down there for 2 years playing baseball at Allen! Small world.

FWIW - Kicker's a great amp, but you sure don't have to pay $1400 for the 2500.
