    sounds like a good deal to me, i got a 12w6v2 reformed from a guy off craigslist for like $40.

    I just installed 3 OS JL 8w6's in my truck. Refoamed the 3 and they are great!

    uhh, fyi,.. jl w6v1's are dual 6ohm,.. 3ohm nominal is what the amp sees with both coils paralleled

    wont work well on a 600w @ 1ohm stable amp



    D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F.???

    With the sub being able to haldle up to 300 rms, how would you recomend that I get the amp wired?

    The MB Quart ONX1.1000D
    ◦4 ohms: 475 watts x 1 chan.
    ◦2 ohms: 750 watts x 1 chan.
    ◦1 ohm: 1000 watts x 1 chan.

    Thanks

    actually, 300 rms is a rather conservative figure, to be honest. they can handle upwards of 4-600rms depending on the alignment,.. the onyx is perfect for the w6 wired in parallel, imo, just make sure you set the gain to be free of clipping.
