I really wouldn't recomend either. An L5 or two CVR's is quite comparible in SPL. However, either set up requires an abundance of power that the sub channel on a Kicker 5ch amp won't provide.

If you want two CVR's or one Solobaric, get a bigger amp for the sub(s). Personally, I would run one CVR off the sub channel and be done with it. You'd be suprised how much bass you can get with one properly powered sub. Most kids are disapointed by a lack of bass, because they don't have enough power going to a pair of beefy (and inefficient) subs.

BTW, nice selections. I have been a dealer of all the aforementioned for over a decade and would highly recomend all that stuff

A single L5 is to best served to be wired in a 2ohm config and given a mono ch of amplification (not derived from bridging two channes ala dual mono configuration as most people may think).

(2) dvc 4ohm CVR's wired into a 2ohm config would be best mated to a 2CH amp. And while they are flexible enough to be used with your sub channel, your amp realistically won't drive two CVR's to their potential.

The L7 however can handle significantly more power than an L5, and doesn't take up the trunk space of a dual sub set up.
