    MTX 12'' 4500 thunder series vs JL 12w1v2

    I have the MTX right now but i wanted to upgrade and somebody said that i should get the JL 12w1v2s. I have only 1 MTX sub and i would be getting 2 JLs. I was wondering if comparing just 1sub to 1sub which would be better overall because the RMS and wattage are about the same but i dont have much experience with subs or nething and i no JL are pretty top of the line. I would have a Alpine MPR -450 powering it.

    JL is not top of the line....it is just expensive because you are buying a name

    Are you looking to upgrade sound quality or loudness? JL subs have a history of sounding good. I think the w1v2s sound good for the price. If you went with two then you would be upgrading your loudness as well. Are you interested in going ported?

    My JLW1.v2 is ported and Ive been powering it with a 150watt Alpine amp for 2yrs. Its pretty loud and goes low. It has always impressed me.
