    which one.

    well it seems as though im in a bit of a sticky wicket.


    with my box size limitations i can run either 2 jl 13w6s ported which i have been running for a year and love it.

    or 2 13 inch jl w7s sealed.

    usually don't have the bass retarded loud, but still want to "bump" sometimes.

    not really sure if the sealed w7s would be louder afraid it will not be as loud. but should sound better right?.


    what do you guys think.

    P.S i already have all the woofers just need to decided which ones to keep and which ones to sell.

    Re: which one.

    I would just run the w6's, just cause I know 2 13w6's would be loud enough for me. What makes you think the w7's would sound better? That you'd be running them sealed? Don't know what you'd prefer.

    from my experiences sealed always sounds better. thats why, and i just went for a ride with my new stereo, and almost forgot how loud and good the w6s are got me thinking.(its broken my sunroof before when it was closed)(the mount)

    Not saying that your setup isn't loud but you could just have crappy mount. Ive had cars break welds so bad I just scrapped it a couple times. But if your going to just ebay them for 300ish your better off just keeping them. They are soo nice.

    Re: which one.

    I would choose the w7's over the w6's for quality and loudness. To me it seems like the w6 line doesn't get very loud but it does sound good. The w7 line gets decently loud and still sounds good.

    Re: which one.

    I would go with the W7's sealed. Gives you a nice low end (no steep roll off) and smooth response through the range. Should get pretty beastly with enough power. I've always liked how clean JL's sound. I've demo'd W6's and W7's side by side (local car audio shop) and couldn't tell a huge difference on only 500W RMS.



    '65 VW Bus
    ------
    MA Hippo 122 (awaiting install),(2) Aura Sound 8's, (2) SoundStream 6.5 coax, (2) Alpine Type-S 6x9's [rear fill], MBQ DSC1500.1D, RF 501X

    '02 BMW 330xi (AWD coupe)
    ------
    Harman/Kardon 12-speaker System Option + Dayton HO D4 10" and PPI Ion 650.1 in sealed box
    And many more car audio goodies in storage
