    Icon33 Here's a hard one for you guys!!!

    I'm getting rid of my two 15 W3s. very soon.

    I'm thinking of going either W7, L7 (Solo Baric), XXX, or Adire Brahma. i'm leaning more on the side of brahma or perhaps even L7. what experiences do you have with these? Remember they're going to be in a mostly sealed 1980 cadillac trunk (very big trunk) (i've got a 2 foot x half a foot hole on the back dash for the air to come from the trunk into the actual car). i'm not really looking for much SQ, as long as they have as good or better SQ than the 15w3s i've got at the moment it's cool, i'm looking for bass. pure out bass. bass that can be heard OUTSIDE the car as well as inside.

    If you want good SQ then I would rule out the L7, it doesnt really ahve the best sound quality out there and probably wont compare to your W3's. On the other hand the W7 and the Brahma have better SQ (Although the Brahma I heard sounded like ****) and both are probably louder. Id go with the W7 if youve got the money or the Brahma if you wanna spend less. Im selling a brand new 13W7 with a ported box if your interested...email me at dawgs396@aol.com . Cause if your gonna get a W7...its gotta be a 13W7

    Re: Here's a hard one for you guys!!!

    yeah if i get a W7 it'll definately be the 13.5"... remember i want bass that can be heard outside of the car too... so when i pull up next to some kids with their bass blaring i can own them. so i want heavy bass that can be heard outside, but good inside the car as well. SQ is not an absolute must, but it's pretty important that i can get as good quality as i do with my JL 15" W3s at the moment (which **** at SQ by the way, but i'm used to it, so as long as they are that good it's all cool )

    any suggestions? personal experience? whatever i get, i've got a Memphis 1000D amp, so i'll be hooking one (both?) to that, and if i have to get another 1000D amp (for the second subwoofer, if they need 1000RMS each) then i'll do that

    **** i loved my 15 w3s man...they pounded like **** and i could be heard miles away. how big a box are they in, and are they ported? If you defiantely wanted to get another sub, go for the w7 if you have the money...but if you want more bass port them w3s and youll be straight..

    If you wanted you could hookup one amp to each one of the 13W7's voice coils, running 2000 to the one sub. This thing can take serious punishment and will still sound great and get loud as f***! Just email me if your interested in one, I gotta brand new one with your name on it. And trust me, not only will you be heard outside the car...youll be felt outside the car with this sub.

    well....personally i think that if you did a really good install with the 15w3's you would get more volume, and similar if not better sq than the brahma...

    Definitely go with a 18XXX for the loud you're talkig about. Personally I'd play with box size/ tuning on the w3's before spending more money because those have potential for good SQ and SPL.

    Yeah but even the best installed 18's wont hit the higher notes like a smaller sub would, even though they sure do hammer the low ones. The best all around size would be 12-15", and theres a lotta subs in that range can can pound like hell. Id still go witht the 13W7 if you got the money

    Re: Here's a hard one for you guys!!!

    you guys really think i should mess with the 15W3s i've got at the moment? if i can get better bass out of them then i'll go for it, cause i don't have much money, and if i can stick with what i've got (two 15w3s running off a memphis 1000D amp) i'd like to!





    those are the subs and the boxes i have at the moment. you can hear somewhat good bass in the car, and nothing at all outside it, even with windows open, doors open, everything closed, etc

    Now i know in the picture they're facing each other, but believe it or not i can hear more bass like that than when they're facing back, forward, diagonally toward each other, etc... i think it's cause they actually face up rather than directly at each other. is it perhaps cause the trunk's sealed so tight? should i take out the back dash (where the 6x9s are)? i want to keep the car looking as stock as i can, so without making obvious holes in it would be great.

    please let me know.

    thanks a lot guys
