    as big as you wanted to go, there are tons of woofers very comparable to the w 7 that cost less. adire audio brahma, mtx 9500, image dynamics idmax, stereo integrity d2, re xxx............................................... ...1200 watts is enough to drive a 10 or a 12 or even larger of any of these. i honestly doubt you would be dissappointed with what ever you choose even if it was a 10".

    Well, i have a jl 1000/1 and at the time i had a 10" w7. I asked my retailer if i should sell the 10 for a 13" w7 but he said, the 2 10" w7's would be louder. To make sure he was correct, i went to hi fi buys here in town and they said the same

    Honestly I've heard a W7 and wasn't impressed , look into all options and decide which is ur best choice also consider your Box size as part of ur sub selection.

    Re: W7 JL Audio 12" or 10"

    With that much power, I would probably go with a 12W7. I have demoed a 12W7 in my car, and there was no "wooshy bass." It sounded amazing, sealed, off my JL 500/1.

    I am not saying it is the best sounding sub in the world since I have not heard every sub in the world, but if people insist there are subs out there that sound "way better," I would question either their ears or the W7 install they heard.

    You need to listen for yourself and see what you think. You may end up with a W7 or a Brahma/Idmax, etc.

    Of course they will. Just add the Sd of the 2 10w7's, and compare it to the Sd of the 13w7...

    Heavenly Father = Jehovah

    TRUTH:

    Heavenly Father = Yahwah
    The Messiah/Savior = Yahoshua
