    Focal Utopia or JL Audio W6 sub?

    Im planning on purchasing a 10" sub and im deciding between the Focal Utopia (11") of a JL Audio W6. I just need pro's and con's for both subs cause im not too fimilar with subs. I've heard the JL and was impressed but haven't heard the Utopia only the polyglass and it wasn't bad. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    The focal are basically pure SQ subs...and they do it well.
    The w6 can get louder and still maintain fair SQ but nothing compared to the focals.



    I used to spend a lot of my free time here. It was fun I suppose. Still rocking the 9515 and Better Audio amp haha.

    How's incriminator stuff these days?

    I have to disagree. Don't take this wrong, we all know Focal are some of the best ever made, but when it comes to subs JL's history speaks for itself. For all out SQ there aren't more than a few that can compare and even less that can rate better. And yes, I would love to have some Utopia components, but for subs I would take the JL's.

    I will go with the Utopia's for all out SQ system, you should be comparing the 10w7 i think they are in the same price range.....if so i will go with the 10w7's.

    I've owned and installed more JL audio products than I can count. Track records mean ****. The Utopia's are a much much better SQ sub. The w7 can compare but the w6's can not.

    On the SPL front the JL are louder without question..
