    fosgate vs jl vs jbl

    ok im lookin at gettin two 3500 series dd audio 15's or 2 jl audio w3 15's or perhaps 2 15" fosgate's (prob highest model i can find). these would go into a cherokee. what amp should i run these off of? im thinkin on the jbl 1200.1 to each perhaps (if i get the dd audio) and if i go w/2 jl's then im not sure...thinkin on one fosgate 1000.1 or 1500.1 amp. or should i wait to see the new jl audio 1000.1 amp. i know one guy that has 2 of the jl subs w/a 500.1 amp to each of them. he had 2 in a lexus and it was **** loud but i want louder.

    take two of the Fosgate 1500s and run one to each 15..If money is a problem then the next best thing would be the JBL 1200.1

    well, if u know what ohm load ur gonna run it at, it would be easier to choose an amp. if u decide to run it at 4 ohms, the fosgate will only put out 750 for the 1500 and 500 for the 1000. if ur gonna run it at 2 ohms, u'll get 1500 and 1000 respectively. the jl will put out 1000 at 1.5-4 or 6 ohms i believe. the jbl is a great amp, nothing wrong with it at all, but not quite up there yet with the fosgate and jl amps. if ur gonna run 2 ohms, i'd suggest the fosgate, anything else, i'd go for the jl. u might need 2 of each depending on what sub u pick too.
