    honestly not a bad price for getting 2 w6v2's authorized. Amp isn't anything great, but for $1k installed i would get it.

    I agree, authorized it isn't bad. You are essentially getting the amp and box for $100 since the subs retail for $449 each.

    You could do just as good, if not better, for the same price range.. A XXX and a good 1500 amp for a lot cheaper.

    Why are people so fixated on JL? I kicked the **** out of this guys two JL w6s cause he had in a ****** bandpass and a ****** Sony amp. And I only had 800w going to my sub.

    Key, they are commercial and are everywhere. All the big names are in the retail channels and easy to get. Fact is, the big names are good stuff, just over-priced since they control the market. People aren't really down to get a no-name company sub off the internet, so it's understandable.
