    Enclosure for JL 12W6V2

    Hi guys,

    I'm gonna go pick up a used JL 12W6V2 tomorrow. Would this enclosure be okay for the unit? https://www.frys.com/product/6192219

    Also - I'm borrowing my friend's 1200watt amp to test the unit (I'm currently running a powered sub off 8 gauge wire). Will this be okay as long as I don't bump up the volume? Any things I should look out for when I look at the unit? Thanks in advance!

    You can use a multimeter to check the coils instead of hooking it up to an amp, that box will be fine.

    Didn't think about using a multimeter. Thanks for the tip!

    i can design you a ported for the jl

    they do really well ported, very clean and tight woofers. still get loud too, just don't overpower it too much

    that sealed enclosure will not work well with the jl 12w6. it is only .75 cubic feet, so after subwoofer displacement you are looking at around .65 cubic feet. jl recommends 1.25 cubic feet for a sealed enclosure.

    if you just want a cheap enclosure for now get one of these:

    and line it with some acoustic dampening material.
