    w7= poop...

    After some craigslist hustlin, I wound up with a JL 12w7. I got quite a deal on it, but its not at all what i had hoped for giving JL's overrated rep. It's a decent sub, but can only take 1000w rms and it doesnt really like that. I hear the motor on the w7s are really good though, so im thinking of a recone to 15" using the w7s motor. Is this a good idea?? Does it sound like a good or bad idea?
    TIA



    Amp: SAE-1200d
    Subs: SA-12s (2)

    w7's are really good subs actually...just kinda expensive
    They're not made to get loud, made to sound good

    What do you mean it didn't really like 1000w rms?

    Re: w7= poop...

    Dont get me wrong, its a quality subwoofer. It just wasnt quite what I was expecting...

    And the sub started distorting around 1000 watts.

    Re: w7= poop...

    I have an alphasonik pma1200d amp with the gained turned up 1/4 - 1/2 way. Bass boost is all the way off. I used a line-level so I can keep the factory HU (which derates the bass output at higher volumes i know). It came with a ported MTX box that I'm currently using.
    I think part of it might be that I just had unrealistic expectations dropping from 2 15s to one 12... but a friend of mine has one loaded 15" FI BTL on 2000w rms MOJO amp with gain 1/4 way up and man did it put this w7 to shame.

    I want what he has is what Im saying!!!! haha

    Why would you buy a W7 if you wanted something like a BTL?

These companies want u to fight over who is the best. When honestly there is probably 2 or 3 huge companies that make every single amp on the planet. Wake up people.u don't no who owns this stuff and u don't know who owns these build houses.
