    jl audio 12w6v2 subs opinion

    For those that had/have some of these subs, i know the specs say 400watts nominal ratings, but in the car audio mag. they vance/? did a review on this sub. on his setup he used a zapco c6k amp pushing 2000watts into the sub really didn't mention if he used one or two. anyways i have 3 of these babies, and of course using only ppi art amps(one of the best). using 2 subs, i was going to run an a1200.2 (1200watts/4 ohm/briged mono) for the 2 subs or use 2 a600.2 on each one. so i was wondering for those who had/have these subs, how much wattts were you able to feed into this sub.? and sound quality?

    i was inquirying due to the fact that when they did the review on this sub, they feed it 2000wts, sure i agree with, why go beyond manuf. required specs...

    Re: jl audio 12w6v2 subs opinion

    exactly, its quality not quantity, its the type of clean watts that is put into the speaker, but there are a few great amps that have both, and there lots of amps that are really crappy amps(imho), 1500w amp for lets say for couple bills, and probably a good portion of those watts are static, that is not what i consider a good amp, this one guy told me who was into great car audio hi-fi stereo, that a good quality amp it will cost 1 dollar per watt.

    my friend has 2 12' W6s and he poweres his with a jl 1000 and his have don distortion and are just fine. Also I would say that the jl1000 is underrated so you would prob be getting somewhere around 1200w anyways

    I had a set (3) of the first W6s that JL made. I had them wired series/parallel for a 4ohm load. Running a Rockford Punch 200ix to them and they sounded off the hook. I know this isn't relevant to this thread but I just thought I'd share this with you guys since you seem to be fans of JL.
