    cant go wrong with any of them. the ten or twelve will run of a 500 watt amp while the 13.5 needs 1000. its your call

    Depends on the sound you're looking for. As Grand AMature said, they all sound great. If you'll looking for a lot of punch and SPL, the 13.5 is better, though if you just want pure SQ and don't need a lot of punch, the 10 is fine, or even the new 8W7, though very few stores have them available yet. My final setup will almost certainly have a pair of 8W7's for SQ (with a pair or trio of 12W7's and a few thousand watts with a simple on/off toggle for those times when I'm looking to make the other guy's mirrors fall off .

    hey guys... just want to get your opinion. if you put head to head a 10w7 and a 12w7 say with equal equipments(amps, HU etc) and play a really fast beat would the 12w7 be left out? or would they be able to play the same fast beats regardless of cone size?

    itwould be the same only the twelve would be louder and produce a wider spectrum of low frequency sound

    So what you're saying Zoni is that if I align the inline rotary girder controls with the simalflange, then the total outcome of the resonant frequencies would be tenfold?

    Hehehe, sorry sorry, I haven't taken my medicine and it's late.

    mike you know what happens when you forget to take your medicine.... you loose focus, you gorget where your are, and you dont understand the retrospective isobaric metrome theory of cabinet and driver design.

    i bought a 12, but kind of which i bought a 10.....500 watts goes a lot better with a 10 than a 12.....i would actully say a ten is good with 500 and a 12 or 13.5 should have 1000+. But again, you cant go wrong.



    I'm back to stock in my new car.....

    quality and price..

    this is what i came up with..

    seeing how the w7 is svc 3ohm sub.. this is what i'd do considering i have a hifonics amp, and i would want to use MY HIFONICS AMP instead of spending lots of money gettin a jl1000/1 or jl500/1 esp, since the hifonics amp is cheaper than both, and produces quality sound too..
    the specs of the hifonics z1000d that i have (incase you don't know) RMS:
    4ohm 400 WATTS
    3ohm <- this is what you'll need to konw = 575 watts
    2ohm 750 watts
    1.3 <- I think this would be the ohm load of the two combined
    1ohm - 1000 watts

    get 1 10w7 ported
    hifoncis at 3ohms = 575 watts which is over 75 watts of the rms
    then when you get more money to build another box and for another w7 and upgrade your alt. you can get a second 10w7 ported
    letting you have 2 10w7's ported which as a result you DON'T have have have to have the rms!!! thus each sub being ran at 1.3 ohms - giving each sub b/w 475-500 watts (running at 14.4 volts (amp is underrated)

    that will sound better than 2 12w7s, and you get to use a hifonics amp
