    Now if it was comparable to the W6, we might have a contender. Otherwise, I think the BM will stomp all over the TW5
    i have a pair of 12w3's sealed (150w to each) in one of my cars and to ROCKS! if the 13tw5's sound like this i'd be more than happy, but i'd have to pay the big money to save the little space.

    That is what I wanted to hear. I am glad to see that JL is finally earning their reputation again, with the introduction of the TW5 and the HD amps. As ahead of its time as the W7 was, it has been around for 7 or 8 years now, and you need to keep moving to keep my attention.

    Like I said, I have heard them, and I would much rather have my old M-Class 12s and an MC500d than some 12" W3s on a 500/1

    I loved my MC500d. Amazing amp that served me well for 3 years. But it is coincidently replaced by a JL 1000/1 (free) and I think it is a very nice amp as well.

    The slash amps are definitely nice. But the only thing I like about them over other good amps is the fact that the can put out full power from 1.5-4 ohms. But for the price, I would much rather have the Alpine PDX amps. Smaller, sexier, efficient as hell.

    I will always think that JL is overpriced. The w7s saving grace was that it was so technologically advanced. Now I can get subs that sound as good or better for less than half the price. But with the TW5, they again have a product that no other company can match (at least for another 6 months or so).
