Re: JBL VS JL support your decisions
well, box a sub right, give it the right power etc, and most subs can easily make you go deaf and be plenty hard hitting anyway...
I wouldn't be too concerned with a sub having a lack of kick at all, the first set ive ever had were alpine type Es, two 12s. Yes since then i've had much more powerful systems, but the 2 12s were still **** loud as **** and i lost a lot of hearing from them, just from two 12s, and type Es at that!! :[[
I'm running a single 10 type X now and very much underpowered, but still plenty powerful enough for my taste.
Considering what you seem to want, I would just go with the JL, they're a bit better known to most people so at least you'll get street cred
Do you have box size limitations btw? Will you be able to accomodate the proper box to the suggested sub specs?
