    JBL VS JL support your decisions

    im not a true audiophile, i dont have super trained ears. i will not be entering any sq competions. I DO want a great sounding sub (my goal isnt "to be heard from 3 miles away", or "to shake the concrete"). it needs to sound amazing, be accurate, and yet still get satisfyingly loud. which sub would make me happier

    JL 13W6v2
    JBL W12GTI

    again: "sq" is more important to "spl" to me for this

    will be powered by an alpine PDX-1.1000

    space is not an issue
    sealed or ported, whatever will be better

    I just want to here some theories how this happened.
    In case you were wondering I drive a tahoe and when I say loud I mean loud to the point that your ears will pop and it starts hurting.

    Re: JBL VS JL support your decisions

    it's pretty close, i thing the JL would be louder and sound a little better because they are under-rated (they can handle just as much as the GTI), and they have a greater surface area

    Re: JBL VS JL support your decisions

    ahhh now i cant decide.... i know ill be happy with either

    it LOOKS like the jbl could freakin swallow the jl lol... but people are saying it can hang in terms of output?

    of course the jl will be super accurate adn sound amazing, but im afraid its gunna be too weak for my liking

    the jbl looks like it oculd take a serious beating

    keep in mind the GTI only recomends 700watts RMS,

    the JL recomends 500, but it can both take more than that, and it has a larger surface area, and i'm not sure but i think a larger X-max

    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

    (lol)

    Do you have box size limitations btw? Will you be able to accomodate the proper box to the suggested sub specs?



    In the Civ:
    Pioneer DEHP-7600MP
    Alpine spx-137r (component)
    Alpine spr-17ls (component)
    Alpine sps-69c3
    Alpine swx-1042d 2 ohms in .75 cu ft box
    Autotek sx-777 (7-channel 1080 watt RMS)
    JL Rca

    ^ ALL FOR SALE
    PM if interested

    the W6 uses a smaller box for ported design and sealed design unless you polyfill the **** out of it

    Re: JBL VS JL support your decisions

    no i have no limitations. ive had 2 15s in my car at one point, so i think 1 12 will fit

    i dont care about street cred and to that extent i would rather have the jbl because its fairly unheard of around here

    but none of that really matters i just want performance

    im leaning towards the jbl as of right now, because i think it will have a little more kick, but the jl does have more surface area.... hmmmmm
