    Has anyone ever used any Lanzar products before?

    I was thinking about getting one of their headunits that has 5 preouts and 240 watts. Also a 2400 watt amp w/ built in crossover, and two 15" subs. I am still undecided about what mids and highs to get.

    I am just not to sure about the quality of their products...

    Since being bough out,Lanzar has really dropped in quality,in looks,their still there.ANY headunit with 240 watts is a joke and shouldnt even be considered when using a amp

    What would yall suggest for a sub/amp combo in the range of $500 for one two channel amp and two subs?

    I just need something I can switch on in the school parking lot when all the ricers try to show everyone up with all their bass.... Some peoples are so bad that their neons have fallen off their cars because their radio is so loud! LMFAO!

    I'm making a box out of 3/4" MDF to fit behind the seats in my std cab truck, and since I listen to country, the bass wont be super loud 24/7, only turned up everyonce and a while to annoy people :D

    All you would need would be a one channel sub amp with subs run in parallel. Fosgate amps go for decent prices on ebay. Also the jbl sub amps are inexpensive. As far as subs, I prefer Kicker brand subs. I have L7s but you should be fine with the CompVRs.

    You guys want good prices on the L7's? Go straight to the actual manufacturer

    http://credencespeakers.com/

    They even still make the old round Solos if you want them. Apparently, they've manufactured for Bostwick and Lanzar at one point also.

    **** Lanzar!!! I have two of thier worthless Vibrant amps. An 800watt 4-channel and a 1200 watt 2 channel. After about 6 months the 1200 stopped pushing my 2 12" Kickers. I called an wrote Lanzar about the problem and they did'nt even respond...

    On ebay you can get 2 good Kicker or Kenwoods for very cheap..

    I dont think they make the Kicker's,their made overseas,,Credence are "made in the US" and you can buy the square surround,cone,basket and spiders that look the same.

    They USED to make them. The original round Solos and the Resolution components. They also made the first series of square Solos. According to e-mails, they'll be selling alot more stuff.
