    Anyone running a JL 1000/1 to a 12W7?

    I plan on upgrading my 500/1 to a 1000/1 as soon as I fix my paypal account and can send money But before I put it in.. you guys who have it, or have heard it, how does it sound? Do you think since its twice the wattage it would be twice as loud? Thanks

    I didn't think it would sound literally twice as loud, it was just something to guage it by. The subs not loud enough for me espically when I get out of my friends tahoe with 2 15" L7's.................

    /\/\what the hell?/\ /\ i thought the sound "sounds" twice as loud with like every 6 db increase, or somewhere around there. Im pretty sure when you double power, you hear a large increase in sound.....

    well, he's on the right track, decibels are exponential, not linear.

    a 10db sound is 100 times louder than 1 db, 20db is 1,000 times louder than 1 db.
