L5s and L7??? hmmm......

So i have an amp sitting around my house doing nothing. 1200 watts, so i wanna put it to use. I want to add more kickers to my trunk but i dont kow what i sould do.

I originally wanted to get 2 10" L5s but now im debating because i can get a 12" L7 for the same price of the two l5s.

Im building a trunk set up this summer, and i thought it would look alot cooler have one l7 and two l5's rather then just two l7's. But now i dont know what do you guys think i should do. Also the amp is 1200 watts peak 600 watts rms, so it wont power the l7 as much as an l7 should be, but it will do a fine job with the l5s.

Go with the setup you want, but purchase another, smaller amp. Run the L5's off the 1200 watt amp, and get like a 400 watt amp to push the L7. When you go to mount them, do a setup that leaves them exposed, with the smaller one sitting on a rack over top of the bigger. That would look hot, especially if you took and hid some LEDs under the bigger amp so they glow like an under carriage system.

'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.
