Ski hole openings are a great fix for bad response.

honestly I had two 13w7's and two 1000/1's and I felt they werent getting pushed to max, couldnt get them warm or even to xmax on alot of songs, I believe you can put 2k rms to one VERY CLEAN power though I don't let a dirty signal go to my subs so I may be alot easier on the gains than most and my boxes were built to spec hell I ran my kicker kx2500 to one 12w7 at 3ohms and it handled it like a boss just my 2cents I know alot may argue this so I will say it again I keep my gains BELOW clipping
I think you should sell the JL and get a pair of subs that will suit you better. A new box will help a ton though!
i have had the 13w7 on both a 1000/1v2 and hd1200/1 and with the proper enclosure/tuning/unclipped power it seemed as if the sub was playing perfectly.
although jl states 1500rms they also say the optimum range is around 900-1200rms and at 1501watts they void the warranty. Im sure you may be able to throw more power at it but if you want that very expensive driver to last a long time I say no more than 1300 should be a safe bet
Could not tell the difference output wise but each had a slight uniqueness in sound ...I personally like the 1000/1v2 as it has an adjustable subsonic (hd has either 30hrz or off) and a slightly warmer sound but its hard to beat the size and efficiency of the hd
yeah I just bought a 98 mustang gt and want to keep weight down and I was impressed with my 300/4 and 1000/1 but they are heavy amps and the new hd's are alot lighter lol
Memphis makes great high end amps especially the belle and m class I own 3 of there amps I dont care for there subs to much.
