    2 10s or 1 13.5" Woofer

    Im having a hard time deciding on either 2 10s or 1 13.5. Im thinking 2 10" JL Audio W6v3 or 1 13.5" JL Audio W7. Both will be ran off the same amp which is a JL Audio HD1200/1. The 13W7 needs about 2.5 net volume tuned to 34 hertz and the 2 10w6s need 1.5-1.75 net volume tuned to 34 hertz. The 13w7 has a cone area of somewhere around 135sq in while the 2 10s will have 157 sq in. Which do you think will hit harder and sound better?

    Re: 2 10s or 1 13.5" Woofer

    wow idk.. w6 good sub but i wonder if they need more than 600 per sub to really be pushed hard of course same could be said for w7, i guess i'd go with 1 sub with more power.. maybe someone knows about jl it ain't me..

    omg normally i get yelled at for that and didn't even think about it this time.. OP i suggest a FU 1250 12 or 15 (honestly a fu 750 like mine would be awesome on that power and it's $189 made in us see my avatar)

    For what vehicle? What's your budget? Get rid of the overpriced w7...I know it's a good sub, but for the money there's tons more options out there.

    Re: 2 10s or 1 13.5" Woofer

    Just a 2008 Honda Accord coupe. Had to sell car audio stuff where I am. Just wondering If I should keep it or trade and save space on my box and which will perform better on my amp?
