    anyone tryed this JL sub?

    Wondering how this would stack up against a sundown SD12 or DC/DD 500watt subwoofer. All would be in a sealed box. I know jacob said the sd series is more sealed friendly, and the dc lvl 3 does well sealed. Would the JL produce similar output? Im sure the sq will be great. Up to 1.25-1.75cu of space

    Is that a new sub or something? LOL

    12w3 = good, decent sub - not the best - not the best value - but a good sub. I have run a few of them.

    I would not buy another

    I dont have extensive listening experience with em but they did sound nice in the short time i heard them. I think I'd buy one. But I'm pretty sure I'd choose the DC lvl 3 over it too

    If youre willing to spend $189 on a jl w3, why not just get the sundown sa-12 instead?

    i really want to go sealed this time. Im looking for a 12 since i can only offer around 1.5cu of space.

    sa12s dont liked sealed boxes, but im planning on the SD12 as of now. Unless i can find a lvl 3

    They do good in sealed boxes, and they gotta be real small, so its a win win. I think the 12 likes .9 cubes or something like that.

    the dc level 3 will have much more output with the right power. I personally hated my 12w3 it sounded great but its output and powerhandling were sub-par

    hard to go wrong with the sundown SA12
    the ascend audio choas and FI SSD do great sealed as well...



    knowledge is powerful but imagination is exponentially powerful..

    experience is key!! otherwise life is boring, uneventful and pointless..

    Re: anyone tryed this JL sub?

    so u think the SA12 would be ok sealed? I know jacob said that ppl do run them sealed and its not horrible, but alot of peps told me not to run it if i was gunna go sealed. SSA rec's 1cu for em sealed, but the SD is suppose to be more sealed friendly. I was going to run my P6002 but i do have a memphis PR1000.1 on its way back from ampmedics, so i could push the SA hard too
