Question 10 inch Kicker L5

So today my subwoofers decided they had enough and just blew on me.

I had two 10 inch single coil subs and im looking to save a little room in my trunk (gotta lug around hockey bags).

So i was thinking about buying a 10 inch Kicker Solo Baric L5.

Everyone that has one tells me they are amazing and im looking for something to kick but not blow my trunk off.

I have a 800 watt amp now and i figured thats more than enough to power the sub and then some...

I also found a Solo Baric for a resonable price already in a ported box.

Is this a good idea or waste of money?

Thanks

well it depends on the power that it puts out at the ohm level recommended for the sub

oh, sorry i forgot to put that lol. it'll work no matter what. but if you under power it then it wont sound its fullest. if you can put at least 300 watts out at 4ohm then you're good.

i totally understand ya. you want good power, but not for a huge price. and you want to save some space. kicker does make some decent subs...i've just never been a huge fan. i love my jbl p1022's...but they take up a massive bit of room. just make sure that you get the right size box for that kicker so you dont burn out a coil.
