View Full Version : Technical advice need on my box (JL10w6 version1)

02-12-2007, 08:01 PM
I have a ported box for a JL 10w6 version 1. It has been setting in storage for a long time and I just hooked it up again last weekend. Sounded great until the foam cone surround ripped apart. Now my delima is that I can not buy a new 10w6 version 1 and the new 10w6 speakers are extreamly different. I was wondering if I could use a 10w3 vesrion 3 as it seems to be the closest thing to my speaker in the JL line up. I might have to add a spacer so the 10w3v3 can fit into the smaller box and also maybe add some stuffing to make the box seem larger.

My bos is made exactly to JL's specs for ported

The specs for the JL 10w3v3

I have a PPI PC2300 amp

If anyof this makes sense please give me some suggestions.

My other option I believe is to have the speaker repaired but since its a foam surround I would like to upgrade to one that has rubber.

Don't buy the w3.

If you are going to do anything, try to locate one of these:

That is a w6AE clone. They have identical T/S specs and cost much much less than the w6s. I'm pretty sure the AEs are the same as the v1s too. I bought my JWS 10 for $40 shipped but I doubt you will find that price any where.
