    JL Dub 7 and VGA 800.2

    Will the soundstream VGA 800.2 be enough to move a JL 12" dub 7?

    2 X 200 RMS 4 Ohm
    2 X 400 RMS 2 Ohm
    1 X 800 RMS 4 Ohm Mono

    well it depends....if your going to port it...it should push it not to its optimum levels but u will get some decent notes out of it...if your going sealed 4get about it...it would barely move..

    Re: JL Dub 7 and VGA 800.2

    that should be more than enough power, sealed or ported, IMO. IIRC, the rms on the 12 is 750? if it can't reach reasonable xmax in a sealed box at or over its recommended RMS, i wouldn't have it.

    um...sixth....its a 3ohm coil not 4....he will not be getting the full 800...if he was my answer would be different...the sub would be getting around 550-650w...not the full 800

    Re: JL Dub 7 and VGA 800.2

    wanna explain how 3 ohm mono will produce less power than 4 ohm mono, providing the amp is stable?
