    Do you have the space to port those JL's? Also what size box are the JL's in right now and what type of car?

    Re: what should i expect...

    One Type R in a good ported box tuned low would probably be more of what you are looking for, are those the older W3's I assume? If those are the newer W3's then I would say to port two of them if possible but the older W3's I would replace with the type R in a good slot ported box like this.
