Hi, this is my first post! Any help would be much appreciated.
Now I am looking at getting 2 subwoofers and these are Pioneer TS-W311D4 (12" Champion Series DVC 4 ohm). These subs perform at 800 watt rms combined (400 watt rms each) and I'm going to wire the DVC in parallel and in parallel with the amplifier to make a total 1 ohm load. Now I have 2 amplifiers in mind and these are the Pioneer GM-D9601 or the Pioneer GM-D8601 and these of course are 1 ohm stable. So the GM-D9601 performs 1200 watt rms at 1 ohm and the GM-D8601 performs at 800 watt rms at 1 ohm (which would be a perfect match).
So my question is, is it a good idea to buy the GM-D9601 and have more "headroom" or just match the rms ratings and get the GM-D8601? And would I be right in thinking that the GM-D9601 will run cooler as it won't be as stressed as the GM-D8601? Thank you :)
JL Audio doesn't directly sell replacement parts for 12W7s and they want like $200 for a service/repair job.
https://fixmyspeaker.com/product/full-cone-cover-for-jl-w7/ would be a good option, but they're unavailable and have been for months.
Has anyone found an alternative, maybe from a different sub-woofer but fits the 12W7? I heard of someone online using a 12 inch dust cap/cone cover that was made for another subwoofer but looked like the OEM JL Audio one and fit.
I'm also thinking of measuring the cone and making a 3d model to get it 3d printed at a local shop.
I hope there is someone here who will actually read through this detailed topic and give me some good advice! Here is my situation. I have a 2011 Toyota Corolla Le. Its stock system consists of 6 speakers; 2 tweeters, (2) 6 3/4" speakers, and (2) 6x9" speakers. I have a 12" rockford fosgate P2 and an eclipse mono amp that can push it, but they are just sitting in my garage. My plan is to buy the sony single din reciever MEX-XB120BT which has a class D amplifier built into it and it produces 45 watts of RMS to 4 channels @ 4 OHMs. I want to use it to power new speakers so I don't have to spend hundreds more on a separate amp and wiring kit. My previous ride had a jvc aftermarket double din reciever pushing 14 watts RMS with DS series kicker speakers( four 6 1/2" speakers ) and it sounded good, but not amazing. So I am wondering if pushing the speakers closer to their max RMS wattage actually makes the speakers sound noticeably better. With the new sony receiver I plan on buying (2)JBL GTO 629 and (2) JBL GTO 939. The 629's RMS watts are 60 at 3 OHMs with 93DB rating and frequency response of 53-21,000 HZ . The 939's RMS watts are 100 watts at 3 OHMs with 94DB rating and frequency response of 46-21,000HZ. Or I plan on buying speakers that max out closer to the Sony's RMS output wattage such as the NVX N series speakers. The N series 6x9" RMS watts are 55, frequency response 58-20,000HZ, and 89DB. The 6 1/2" N series speakers RMS watts are 40, frequency response 70-20,000HZ, and 89DB. So basically, I'm looking for quality sound and im not advanced in this knowledge enough to make a decision yet. Just reading the details the JBLs are much better speakers. But, from the choices i gave you, would the JBLs still sound better then the NVX speakers even though I won't be able to push the JBLs to their full potential? P.s. I plan on throwing in the p2 sub and eclipse mono amp for bass and unplugging my tweeters.
