I have 2 12" JL w0 subs... I was wondering if I could make them into a home sub setup.

I obviously would need an amp (these are the old w0's btw) and to design a box. This would be a SQL setup.

...I was lying :)

Buy 2 150w plate amps from PE and make the 2 subs a stereo pair. One for each side of your HT. Probably would want the enclosures ported.

Thanks thats exactly what I Wanted to hear. Do you think these will have a nice pumpe to them?? How big of an encloser? And how much do you THINK those amps would cost?

what are the voice coils on them? what is the rms?
i believe most of the plate amps play down to 4 ohms.
partsexpress has free shipping right now.
