    WTB: JL Audio 12W7

    Looking for a good to mint working condition 12W7 with O ring and Trim ring preferably with OEM shipping box.
    Will consider Prowedge 12w7 combo if shipping is cheap enough.

    Why are you looking for a W7? Is it to go along with one you already have? If not I would consider going with some Sundown SA-12's or even SA-8v2's. Speaking from experience the Sundown subs kick some serious a**. I had a 10W7 in a HO box for the last 4+ years before switching to 2 Sundown SA-8v2's about a month ago and the sundown's sound better and hit harder than the 10W7 ever did. For the price of a W7 you could get 2 SA-12's and completely obliterate the W7. And with all things considered I will never be paying for JL stuff again. It's good stuff but way overpriced. I paid $1000 for the W7 in the HO box when I bought it and only paid $600 total for 2 SA-8v2's shipped and custom enclosure built. Would have been $500 if I could have built it myself.

    And no I'm not a sundown nuthugger (first time sundown user but loving them and the savings). Just speaking from experience. Just my two cents.

    Re: WTB: JL Audio 12W7

    Like Bettr said I am well aware of Sundown, many don't consider them SQ subs. I do have a 10w7 and I just want to upgrade. Are they the best subs ? Probably not. While they are expensive at used prices they can be a good deal.......Which is why I am here.

    Now, anyone with a 12w7?

    Why not go with 2 10w7s then?

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    I though about that too but 2 10W7's are too much weight, take up too much space and a little more SPL than I need.

    But what if the single 12 doesn't provide enough SPL for your liking lol. Be better to go with the 2 10s and be conservative with the gain if it's too much perhaps eh? That's prolly what I would do. Then u have extra headroom for when you are feeling like u want more on a given day.

    I do that all the time. Sometimes I play my subs conservatively and others I let Em wail like there's no tomorrow lol.

    But whatever u figure u would enjoy best. It's your install after all.

    I have a 2 sub setup already. I have 2 JBL 10GTI's in a box. The box is kinda large, that is my daily setup. Sometimes I have to carry the family with bags and I need more room in the trunk, so I want to be able to switch up to the 12W7 for less space and weight. Also, 2 10w7's with a decent box will weigh about 100-110lbs. Whereas I can getaway with about with about 70lbs for the 12W7 with box.

    How come your worried about the weight? Gas mileage? Cuz I have roughly 100lbs+ worth of subs and box in my trunk with the 2 8s and I don't notice any difference. I just assume that's why u want to keep the weight down.
