Re: Better SQ - JL 10w3v2 or IA i10?
I wasn't impressed with my 10w3V2s in a sealed enclosure. I think the modeled F3 point was between 50 and 60 Hz with .6 cubic feet per 10. As a result, I had no sub bass, but midbass was impressive.
EDIT I was close... Here is how they model in 1.2 for both:
Type: Closed Box
Shape: Prism, square
Vb = 1.2 cu.ft
Qtc = 0.697
F3 = 53.01 Hz
Fill = heavy
One more thing. Power and EQ only went so far with them because it didn't take much to push those subs to their mechanical limits. I tried them ported with less power, and while impressive, they unloaded rather easily.
I used to swear by old school car audio gear, now I swear at it!
