Re: Opinions: old school JL AUDIO 10W6V1 vs NEW 10W6v2-D4 (+JBL 2235 MTX blue thunder
The old JL W6 line was really clean loud sounding equipment. It was expensive and people paid(pay) dearly for it.
I am an old schooler from the 90's also and love all the old MTX, JL, SoundStream, PG, etc..... These days, you can get a LOT more bang for the buck, in most cases. An equivalent sub that would cost $400 back in the 90's, is around $250 today. Amps are around 1/3 the price or less.
I have heard the newer JL subs, W6 and W7 and am not impressed. There are subs that sound just as good for around 1/2 the price. I would say the majority of the subs in the $250 range that are more geared towards SQ or SQL will give the W6 a run for its money. TC, Fi, Image Dynamics, SSA, Tantric Sounds, DC, SA,etc.
