    Re: Which Subs are better and have better spl?

    The w6v2s are probably better overall drivers...



    but I believe the Type Xs are suppose to get louder


    P.S.

    W6v2 > W7

    Re: Which Subs are better and have better spl?

    arent the type X's more often compared to w7's?

    But yeah, I've heard the same on type X's being louder.

    Performance would be pretty close. Give the edge in quality to the JL.

    They would be close enough to just pick the cheaper one. Or which one will match your amp, needs better.

    .... type-x will get louderrr than w6, if u want SPL, go with the type-x, + it still sounds good, accurate, and it is LOUD and goes deeppp,

    BTW, top of the line alpine's sub also...

    Type-X ftw

    x2,

    w7 has way more SPL than w6v2, still sounds good IMO, but type x's has more SPL than w6v2, if powered right with a nice ported enclosure

    Re: Which Subs are better and have better spl?

    Depends on your power, of course. If you had, say, 1000-1500rms, w6 would be your best bet, hands down. If you've got 2000-3000rms, type-x will be louder than the w6. Just the plain fact that the type-x can handle more power, but it's gonna be an inefficient beast.

    I too was trying to compare jl speakers to the type-x, but i gave up. The type-x really isn't comparable to the w6 or the w7, it's a completely different speaker all over.

    Performance wise, i'd put the x between the 6 and 7, but the strengths and weaknesses are too scattered between the 3 subs to compare them very well... Just my .02
