    Icon14 help on my new system

    i am planning to get a new system, I have choices of subs, 2 12" Jl w3's or 4 12" Jl wo's.
    i want to be heard from far away. if i chose 2 w3's it would be installed in my extra cab pickup. if i chose 4 wo's it would go in my path finder. all i want to know is which one would be louder in the chosen cars.

    i would say spend a little extra and go with 4 w3. but we all dont have the money. but i think the w0 would be louder just because you would have 4, but dont hold me to that because the w3 can handle more power.

    amp: kenwood 320

    you also have to take in consederation that a w0 is a single voice coil woofer compared to the w3's they are dual voice coil if you got the cabbage buy the w6's they are loud and handle a little bit more wattage then a w3 the w6's are also very smooth and have good sq dual voice coil woofer's will be louder then single voice coil woofer's just fpr the simple fact you have 2 voice coil's instead of just one and you can wire dual voice coil sub's alot easier then a single voice coil you can wire them to match the ohm load of your amp so you wont hurt the amp or the subs listen to a w6 before you go buy anything or if you got the doe buy a w7

    Why arent you a fan of the w3 seein how its comparable to the w6 in some ways. Also I would take the 4 w0s over the w3s alot better sound i like the way the w0s sound best intery level sub on the market. IMO anyways thats what i would get

    If disrespecting the general public's right to peace is all you are in this for I will refuse to comment as your actions are doing more harm for the Car Audio Industry than anything at all.

    i don't really think you'll be heard from far away with those subs. The 4 W0's will be louder and be heard more though. 3W0's are equivilant to 2W3's. If you want to be heard from far away go with some Audiobahns or Rockford Power series....that'll get you what you want
