    I would say the Jl is better but both are really good sub. The IDQ has hella good SQ and keeping the SPL right where it needs be. The JL w3 has SQ but it leans more to SPL . Both can sound good in a nice install. Do the install right and youll be happy with the one you pick.

    Go with the JL for bass....but keep in mind there are alot of other subs out there for alot of bass for decent prices. Look into the fosgate he series the alpine type-s and the audiobahn 120q

    In that case, I think the 15W3 would really spank the IDQ in SPL. Probably pretty close in SQ with the IDQ having a slight edge imo.
