    2 JL 13.5s vs 6 JL 8's

    Ok so I need new subs since my FI Q 18" blew up on me and i dont really feel like reconing it. (btw its for sale pm me). I want a JL audio sub setup now. So I am looking into some w7 8's (however many can fit across, guessing 4-6) or 2 jl w3 13.5s or 2 JL w6 13.5s. Either setup will be ported and tuned low like around 27hz. Currently I have a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1D so i can run the 13's easily. but the 8's i am not sure. but i can always switch amps if needed. Goin into a Scion tC. Which would be the best? Btw its a SQL setup. I want to be loud but still have good SQ. I love how low my 18 would get and I want my new setup to get just as low and hit well at all frequencies. KEY: LOW LOW LOW!!!! lol

    None of the above unless you just like wasting money.

    well if you want sq and the low end, then look at different brands. look into getting a pair of custom tc based 12s in the classifieds. they will blow JL away in all fields

    Re: 2 JL 13.5s vs 6 JL 8's

    i know other brands are out there but I would like to do JL since its been around forever and i've always had luck with their stuff. MY FI 18 blew up in 2 months and all FI told me was that I could recone it -__-. So I want to stick with "mainstream" this time and I know JL is good and i'm willing to pay for it. But I may go with some incriminator in my suburban.

    You probably blew your Fi due to user error.

    Ya just look around you can get good deals on the JLs... if you want the SQL id say go with the w6s. for the cheaper price the w3's are good but if your willing to spend it go with the w6's and the 1200 should be great on them.

    appreciate it bro! i found really good deals on the JLs around the same prices as the recommendations. and the w3s were actually cheaper than all of them for tha pair!! But I still think Im going to just go with the w6 13s.

    I will say the Fi sounded tons better. but IMO if the sub isnt going to last then there's no need in me having it.
