    I'd go around 2 cubes ported at around 30-34. They do well sealed too I just prefer the output of a ported box over sealed.

    I owned W6s and I would say 1.5 per tuned to about 38hz. I had them tuned to 32 hertz and it just didn't sound right. What kind of music do you listen too and power?

    Re: 12in JL w6

    thanks for all the suggestions so far.

    mostly Rap, so I'm thinking 1.7-2 cu ported at about 33-34 hertz. How does that sound?
