    it will be plenty loud, why not just get another W6 12? that should be loudER than what you have?

    the ouput on sub is directly related to
    1- enclosure
    2- electrical
    3- amps

    Re: w6 12 vs dd 9512

    i'll say the 9512 is 2-3db louder than the JL if you have the right power

    that is, of course, my opinion and nothing more or less

    I don't agree. A 9515 with 1k makes for a ****ed loud daily driver ported, and still sounds decent. Won't have to risk killing it either.

    in general yes what your saying matters

    in this case

    this kid wants to simply swap the JL for the DD

    my examples are directly related to his issue

    his current box, amp, and electrial , won't be condusive for seeing noticable gains

    Killing it? its take more then 2k to kill a 9500 and plus its alway been a rule of thumb for dd's

    under 2k get the 3500s

    over 2k get the 9500s

    Re: w6 12 vs dd 9512

    ive ran a 12w6v2 ported in 1.65cuft off of an 81000d and it was very loud and sounded good. i think though, the dd will have an spl advantage beeing thats what its designed for. if just spl is what your looking for, than the dd is the best choice of the 2.
