    JL 12W3 High Output Boxes

    Have you guys ever heard of these. This one is the 2 12W3 box. I already have 4 W3 12's sitting in my garage. Would it be about the same to just get a box for 2 of the 12's already have, or are these boxes engineered that much better.

    Throw cost out the window in your answer.

    Building a custom ported box would sound sooo much better then that box.

    You would think JL would KNOW how to build an optimum box for their OWN sub.

    Their box is built to general specs and may not suit his individual tastes depending on his preferences, but you already knew that I am sure.

    probably would sound good, but if you built a box to your own tastes in music you will be more pleased.

    Although you could build a better box, that box sounds pretty good.
