    Please help! IM STRESSED!

    the impednace on the jl12w7 is 3ohm is that the only ohm this sub can be run at, i have a good opportunity to get one at factory price and if i cant run it at or close to 1 ohm i dont care for it.

    no, the jl w7 is run at three ohms...if you have an amp that is doing 500 @ 4 and 1000 @ 2, then 750 would be perfect. 1000 is also a good match if you can get your hands on a 3 ohm amp or a jl slash series amp which will give you 1000 watts from 1.5 to 4 ohms. Someone help out here - i think someone once told me you could hook up a 3 ohm load to a 1 ohm amp just not the other way around

    the JL can be ran at 1.5 and 6 ohm depending on how it wired. no way around it unless you get more subs.

    the only JL W7 with dual voice coils is the 13W7... the 12W7 can ONLY be wired to a 3 ohm load, assuming only one.

    That amp won't do the W7 much justice, but I seem to recall that the db1100 amps are stackable, so you could go ahead and get the W7, and then add another amp, which would give that sub some serious power. But if you don't have the cash for another amp, then a W7 probably isn't the right sub for you anyway.
