Re: Sealed Setup - JL 12w3v3 or Sundown SA12 or ?
so you have 1200w and how much space 1 cube 1.5 cubes,3 cubes?
modeling the sub on a computer program will not tell you how the sub will perform in car.
for instance model up a pair of kicker comp 4ohm wired in parallel for 2ohm and 950w the computer prolly woundnt break 100db yet in my truck termlab will prove the system to do a 138 consistently at 34hz
now if space allows i would run a pair of sundowns in a 3cube sealed box on the 1200w
if space is to limited run 1 in 1.5cubes sealed on 600w
the larger box will make up for the less efficient design of a sealed enclosure, not enough to be as loud as the ported but enough to keep your low end stable
the w3 is going to be quiet compared to the sundown and the sundown can be just as linear in a well designed box. even though the efficiency rating is higher. that rating means very little for in car performance.
if space is of extreme concern 10s might work better for your situation.
