    12 w7

    Hey i am just about to buy a 12 w7 and am wondering how accurate they are and if it is true that one 12w7 will be louder than 2 underpowered 15 inch L7's...i listen to mostly rap but sometimes rock, like hard rock and i do like to hear the double bass and so i was wondering will this be able to hit them as accurate as my 3 10 w3s?

    Re: 12 w7

    I was looking at some frequency response graphs of the w7's today and its almost a completely flat response from abour 22hz-80hz. Pretty amazing. The L7's did peak about 6db higher but had a completely off frequency response.

    L7's will be good for SPL
    w7 will be best for SQ and an even frequency response.
    the w3's should have a good mix of both.

    1 12W7 will not "out pound" two 15" L7's.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Possibly in output (only)........


    One thing everyone is forgetting to read is 2 underpowered 15L7's.

    I guess before everyone goes assuming that 2 L7's > single W7, we should stop and ask how much power he is running

    Pfftt.....that would be the obvious answer So obviously we can't do that......


    But seriously, he could have either switched amps, or plan on switching amps Better to find out for sure, than to assume.

    Re: 12 w7

    if you are running a 500\1 JL amp, id go with the W7 in a nice fat low tuned daily box.

    id rather run a w7 over the l7, but if you are looking for sheer output, the L7's will win if you give them a bit more power (maybe another 1000~1500 watts lol )

    Re: 12 w7

    500/1 go with the.....wait, stay with the W3's....3 w3's will sound better than a W7 any day. Better response...I believe they are somewhere around 92-93 db/ 1watt/1meter....dont quote me on that, but I know that they are some of the best rated SQ's low prices woofers out there...I heard 4 12's with 1 v-12.....WOW it hurt....i know 4 12's should hurt anyways but....it was a very nice sound.

    Re: 12 w7

    for 1 w7 vs. 2 l7

    w7 > l7 for sq
    l7 > w7 for spl

    BUT, b/c of only jl 500/1, idk how well those kickers would more with only 250-300 watts a piece. It would also be box/space dependant. I'd take the w7 hands down, but that's just me (I'm not a big spl junkie)
