    JL Audio W3's or Kicker Solo Classics?

    I'm looking at putting two 8's behind the seat of a regular cab! Which one of these will sound the best in your opinion?

    I would go with W3's. How much you looking to spend?Final ohm load? how much space you working with?

    I have a jl audio 250/1 on a ten right now. I was thinking about two w3's at 4 ohms on 2 250/1's.

    I need to go with two 8's to get higher quality subs. Because I only have 5 inches of mounting depth and with tens you only can get entry level subs with 5 inches of mounting depth.

    Image dynamics sound great.

    Haven't heard a solo classic yet, but the older ones sounded great as well.

    if kicker hasnt changed the solo 8's design at all since 1997 or whatnot id go wiht 2 of those in .33cf sealed 4 sure over the jl's

    the w3's like ported boxes to sound good IMO and the space you have will limit sealed so solo 8's here

    I ended up going with the image dynamics. I have never heard image dynamics. Just great things about them. So I'm going on word. I thought about getting the arc audio 8's though.
