    Enough Power for a 12A?

    I have a JL 500/1 would this have enough power for a 12A and would a 12A beat out a 10W7? Is spl/sq? Thanks.

    It should power the A nicely.

    As far as beating a 10W7, with the right power and enclosure, it can take it in SPL, and come close in SQ...

    That is akin to asking "if I stuck my hand in the haystack, would I find the needle on the first try?"

    Thanks jlaine. I know realize the stupidity of my question. Obviously that ? cannot be answered. I will ask this question though. Now that i am looking at prices. Which choice would the people on the fourm rather have. A JL 10w7, ED 12A, or 2 12K's? All running of a JL 500/1. In sealed enclosures. Also justify you decision.

    -John

    I'd go with the 12A over the 10w7 simply because it will sound close to as good for about half the price.

    Does the dual 12 K setup not have a chance?

    Will not come close in SQ, but should beat both setups in SPL assuming you have the same type of box and everythign for each setup
