    Looking for something else

    I have a 13W7 right now, great subwoofer. I know there's better out there but at the time I had money to blow and never heard the JL 13W7.

    Are there any other subwoofers out there that will get louder and sound just as good on a 1000w/v2 amp?

    Doubt you'll get much of a noticeable difference especially if the w7 is in an optimal enclosure.

    You would need a noticeably more efficient enclosure design or more cone area for the change to even be worth it granted youre keeping the amp

    This ^ also make sure the neclosure is up to spec on the JL's. If not, that may be a lesser expensive
    option on money.

    Re: Looking for something else

    i'd say keep the w7 or spend more money on more power.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    Re: Looking for something else

    You could message me about selling your W7, or make sure your enclosure is tuned right...lastly dont forget JL Audio runs their subs at 3ohms so you cant use normal amps if you ever wanted to get the potential out of it by switching amps.

    Right now my box is tuned at 32, should I rebuild another one according to JL specs?
