    which would you choose???

    what would you think would be the best choice of a sub.

    -1 12in 2005 kicker l5
    -2 10in 2001 jl audio w6's
    -3 10in 2003 jl audio w3's

    the l5 is in the best condition

    they would be in a 1997 acura cl.

    Re: which would you choose???

    I've had 2 12w4's before, and my buddy has two 12" L7's right now, but I heard 3 10w3's in a triangular tub with a phoenix gold amp in another friends eclipse...and it was the most intense bass i've felt at the time. of course my buddies L7's are bigger, so the bass extension sounded lower, but still loud...but a little bit more sluggish or slower than the smaller subs.

    I would say that my 12w4's are comparable to the w6 series since those were the subs they replaced. I loved them when I had my subs, and they were the happy medium between the big L7's and the lower wattage w3's.

    Just 3 10's hitting quickly is just something to be heard and felt.

    But definitely go for what you prefer whether it's low loud bass, or a quick hit you in the chest type of bass from 10's. And he wired his w3's to be 4ohm mono for the 3 subs. I think it was 600 or 800 watts rms from the PG amp.

    good luck

    You can get that same feeling of "quick bass" from any size woofer.

    True. It all depends on the setup too. It just happened that the L7's my buddy was running were setup in a way that favored lower bass frequencies and the w3 tub was in smaller cu. ft setup. Don't get me wrong...my friend's L7's pound! Just speaking from listening to two different setups.

    Why is this in the Amplifier forum?
