    Hmm. Not a bad idea. I'll see what I can get my hands on. I admit I did this the lazy man's way and went into a shop and said "okay I want this to happen, tell me what I need and how much it'll cost". Which helped, because I got a bunch of bundle deals, so we'll see what they have on hand.



    And now... now, what joy will I have left to live for?

    wrong here. a/b will have better sq, but d is far more efficient and draws less current or makes more power with the same current draw compared to an a/b.

    After more reading, I think I'm just gonna bump up to a w3. Price ain't that much more and from what I'm hearing it does FAR better and is worth the extra cash.

    Besides, I figure I can always turn the sub down a little depending on the music, as opposed to not being able to go as loud as I'd like.

    I think his point was that you're just one person and can't really speak for the whole board, hombre. Not that you can't have whatever opinion you jolly well please.

    The W3 is a big step up. In both SQ and output

    Yeah. I was trying to keep it a bit under a certain $ amount, but upon further reflection I'll just go for a good single-DIN unit and a better driver than putting the extra cash into the double-DIN and skimping on the sub.

    I figure I can always turn it down during rock/metal and then crank it up for rap as opposed to being unable to really get output out of it.

    I agree. Not EVERYONE around here hates JL. I'm sure no one around here likes their higher prices, but that can easily be said for any other product.

    JL makes some good ****. Good sq and good build quality.

    Not overly impressed with the W3, but the W6 and W7 are vvn subs.
    JL, overall, has good shizz regardless of the way one views their pricing....and that is easy enuff to get around by going used
