    no no and no

    1 13 W7 is not better at anything compared to 2 12" W6's...don't care what anyone says. i got plenty of experience with both

    if all you want is bass, then you can get louder cheaper than a W7. And usually, not always but usually, lots of bass requires large amount of box volume. Ask around for subs that get real loud with smaller boxes.

    yes i can...the W6 is simply an outstanding subwoofer. PERIOD. you aren't going to gainanything except some extra space in your trunk by doing what you proposed here. In fact, i think you will just be disappointed if you like what you got sound-wise already. You will definately lose some sound quality and volume by switching.

    Re: 2 12w6v2 or 1 13w7

    Most definitely keep the W6s. Many people here that have experience with both actually consider the W6 to be the better woofer. If JL ever comes out with a W7v2, that may change.

    the 2 12W6v2 would be a lot better than one 13W7 IMO.

    The W6v2 is an amazing woofer and sounds way too good and way better than the W7 and also can get very loud (to the ear).
