    Definitly the 2 W0's. They can handle more than 125 RMS(don't believe the JL site!), plus it's 2 12"s instead of one.



    The perfect amount of bass will make you

    If you are goin to stick to the JLs I would say the 2 12W0s are better. I have had both the W0 and the W3 in the past. W3 is great but you will have 2 W0s so thats better I think. Its a great starter sub! I was running 200 RMS to each when I had mine in a sealed box.

    I think 300 would be plenty to get the L5 moving

    what is the difference in performance and sound between the w3v2 and the normal w3?

    anyone had a problem because of that?
