So i was free this past weekend and i went around to a bunch of different car audio stores just for some browsing. here are some of my thoughts
-I didnt find the JL w7 to be all it was talked up to be. it was in a slot ported box(not sure the hz) and was hooked up to the jl audio 1000/1. It sounded ok, but it didnt get as loud as i thought it would
-I am in love with the mtx 9500. I thought that was the best sounding sub that i have heard, it got really loud to with no distortion or bottoming out. it was connected to the same jl 1000/1 amp.
-I listened to some Bahn subs, and didnt like any of them. they just didnt have the same sound depth other subs of that price range had
-I also listened to the alpine type r, and the alpine type x. the type x was a great sub, but i dont think it is worth the money.(about 500)
Im still looking forward to hearing some tempests, resonant audio, and various kicker models.
sorry if this is a useless post, i just thought i would share my thoughts on some of the msot talked about subs.
