Default Anyone have Experience with these?

Hey guys... I picked up a 15" L7.. I KNOW I KNOW!!! I said i would never own one.. LOL.. But i am supposed to be trading it within a day or two for 2 15" American Bass XO 15'*. I know very little about these subs.. they sounded like a cheap brand but after researching a bit... they look like amazing subs! double stiched surrounds and all. They make some really high end stuff...
here are some pics..



here is the link to the subs...

if u look threw their online catalog... they ALMOST remind me of DD subs.

So i just learned some things about these! they r quite good subs... I guess American Bass is similar to DD.. these subs are the equivelant to the DC Level 1'*! I am excited!

American Bass makes some good stuff, but like all companies, they have low end stuff too. These are on their lower end. I definitely wouldn't trade a L7 for them....by comparison, my 12'* have a larger motor structure, can handle more power and don't have a stamped basket like these. I see the allure, but if it were me I'd pass.

yea but the L7 is messed up... the spider is ripped and peeling up off its seat... I am not a Kicker fan (ignore the 2 12" CVR'* in my trunk, LOL) and especially the L7'*... But even if i repaired this sub well.. it wont ever be the same, the spider doesnt have anything to be glued down again.. looks like its been repaired a couple times.
