Default Why no solo x 15?

So I just boaght an old 04 kicker l7 that so far I have LOVED. Ive had sundown sa's of all sizes, dcs, and etc, but I got a steal on this thing and had to try it out because I sold all my subs awhile back to buy a bike. On 300w it surprized the hell out of me, on 600w it sounded amazing and moved a suprising amount of air. Then after dropping down to 1ohm on my ap1500 im kind of disapointed. It barely got any louder, and I REALLY had to turn the gain down to prevent bottoming(4cu after net at 34hz). Anyways long story short, Ive been really impressed with the L7 so many people talk shit about, and ide like to try a solo-x but they dont make a 15. any reason behind this? could someone build one?

They probably found via market research that anyone who wanted to run a big sub like that would just as soon move up to an 18.

Correct. This is a 'SPL' only woofer. If people have room, they'd use an 18 for the cone area, if they don't they'd use the 10 or 12. There is not much of a market for the 15 here, as it would be halfway between a round 15 and a round 18.

No, they still make all three sizes. The only thing they've dropped is the Warhorse as of late. Well, that and large 4 channel amps.

Try a 12 X, it will well outperform that 15 L7 you have, especially on that 1500
