    But you have no idea what he could even get them for. And maybe then he has local warranty and everything. Alot of people dont want to have to deal with shipping **** everytime theres an issue. I got my w7 new with warranty local for dealer cost. And Ill never ship the thing or wait weeks for emails, etc.

    Ive seen threads and seen first hand with **** like Skar, DD, etc. ( case in point the multiple threads "do not by Skar"

    I posted in another thread how my buddy has been waiting 6 months for his repaired 15 from a "local" DD seller.

    True he might only have a few local mainstream dealers but he deserves to get some options out there and if he picks the right setup and proper install he wont need warranty...i understand what your saying .

    Exactly, im not saying JL is the best or his best option. The Jl trash talking when someone just wanted some input is just beyond old to me. I know theres good people on here that will simply give him options for what hes looking for and thats it.

    Re: 3 to 4 12" W7 subs in crew cab Sierra box help.

    okay i knew there would be a couple jl audio haters, but i know they cost alot. My uncle can get me them locally for almost $400 off because hes super into my truck. i know w7s are loud, ive heard just 1 8" one and i was impressed. My main goal is to not lose more than 1 seat. I also do not want to use the bed at all for a blowthrough. For sound, I want it to be LOUD. but with loudness i want quality subs, subs that can hit lows and almostt flex the truck. Now if you have any other subs that you think i should look into (L7, champions, etc) let me know im open to ideas. im personally impressed with the w7 and i would not look into buying them unless it was at a discount. now on the other hand i could also go with 3 13.5 inch W7's running off of 3 of the HD 1200.1 watt amps. BUT ive heard subs sound better if all run off the same amp. so what amp can power 3 1500 rms subs? anyone have any experience doing this type of center console box?

    Re: 3 to 4 12" W7 subs in crew cab Sierra box help.

    one more thing about the brands. ive heard lots of different kinds. Perhaps there are better subs than JL. I know there are louder ones. ive heard 2 kicker solo x 18,s running on 5000 watts each. ive heard rockford fosgate. ive heard pioneer subs. JL just sounded the clearest to me and in the ported box specially designed by JL auido, it was an amazing 13 inch sub. but although i want SPL, i want to maintain some sound quality as well. I plan on deadening the whole vehicle. think of money not being an issue. because im sort of nuts with trucks and audio and i dump lots of money into it. however, i am smart so help me out bros

    There are some big amps to run those subs just pricey. Digital Design, Dc audio, B2 just your preference. Are you downfiring the box ? Im Guessing ported?

    Re: 3 to 4 12" W7 subs in crew cab Sierra box help.

    ive been talking to my guy scott who builds boxes. he said i should run 3 13.5 w7s. starting from the front of the cab there would be 2 downfiring and the last 1 in the back between the rear seats would be facing upwards. so downfiring would be nice.

    My suggestion would just be to read around here for a week or two then decide what you want to do... That's a big build that is going to take a lot of install knowledge...

    To give you good solid advice and options it would help to know how big your budget is. I find its easier to break things down into sections such as Electrical upgrades, Deadening, Sub stage, Front Stage, HU & Processing and so on. This makes things more manageable and less confusing. Do yourself a favor, since you are planning a pretty heavy sub stage do your electrical upgrades first and deadener if funds allow.


    Also I think after doing some research you will find out that there are no car audio manufactures out there that make the best of everything. You will soon realize that some companies excel at certain products. For example: Hertz has some awesome high end components but they are not known for building beefy sub amps. Pioneer, Alpine, and Kenwood make good HU's but I would never run their amps on a substage.

    Downfired gets down. I would downfire all the subs and have a hidden clean install. I know you said you had a box guy but i would contact Double 07 off here. He can help with a box that would be loud as hell.
