jls are good if ur on a budget ive just upgraded and now rocking 3 jl 12w0 they thump pretty good thats cause im on a budget, but if you have the funds i would go with like maybe jl w7 but thats like around $700 for just one 12 or maybe something like 2 12w3 those sound real good a lot better than the w6, but in my opinion eclipses are better they hit really good two 10's with a good amp will get people turning heads, but htey are$$$$$$ but if u have $$$$$ than i would get the eclipses

I'm running 6 eclipse 10's right now & I've got nothing but praise for them. They can be a bit pricey when you start looking into the Aluminum or Titanium ones (that's why mine are 1 step below the aluminum ones). A pair of the Aluminum 10's will run you about $600 but they do everything well. If that's too high of a budget you can go with JL. They've never made a bad sub in my opinion. I'd suggest either 1 or 2 10W3's. That would definately keep your ears happy =)

Till L8er,

whatever you do stay away from anything but JL or Infinity, especially kenwoods. the only sub worth your money are JL or Infinity Kappa.

not true mtx's are bad ass subs so are alpine type-r's it all depends on what you like. if you can get your hands on some cadence solo bass's i would jump on that one i have not heard a sub that can match them even the infintiy's or the jl's. get whatever sub you like to get its your money going into them. just dont get pioneer or rockford. and one other note there are only two makers of subwoofers so every one is the same just different magnents. sorry if anyone feels like i stepped on your toes i didnt try to.

well bro...have you ever heard a 12" JL W7? if you hvae you would never go for anything else...but they are $500-$800 each sub, which is out of most peoples range, or what they wanna spend on ONE sub

i have a jl 15" w3 i bought for 150 bucs brand new from a guy who decided to sell his car b4 he could put the system in. i thought it was pretty good so i went for it. another guy i know had 2 jl 15" w3's run by some CHEAP ass 1000 watt(i think) amp in his mini van, and it sounded REAL nice. JL is DEFINITELY a good brand. when i install mine, it's gonna be pushed by a RF power series 250 watt amp. should sound pretty decent i think. i still dunno whether or not i should make a sealed or ported box for it tho. everyone says sealed sounds CLEANER in a trunk. ported hits harder, but is doesn't have as clean a sound. :?

there is nothing better than getting (2) 1500bd rf power amps and (2) HX2's. The 1500bd is a mono amp and should only be assigned to one sub for each amp. (2) 2 ohm voice coils so its simple, just wire it with a 2 ohm load to be safe or 1 ohm if you know what you are doing. You can get by with 12''s but I recommend getting 18''s. I dont recommend getting capacitors. Dont ask me why cuz it I dont feel like explaining how a capacitor works and how it negatively effects current draw on the electrical system especially if your still gettin' by with ur stock alternator. heh heh, say good bye to it in a month or so so be prepared with 4 ga. jumper cables or bigger. later

i dont want to be mean, seeing as how i am still new to this forum. but please, u close minded people stop dissing. ever hear of adire audio? probably the best audio company on the market with a great value. the Adire Audio Shivas on on the level of JL w6 in terms of SPL and JL w3v2 in terms of SQ. there is more to life than just JL JL JL JL... Infinity isnt even that great. they are good for SQ and thats about it.

there is no perfect sub. everybody has their own tastes. the "right" sub depends on wat type of sound u are going for and wat type of music u listen to. SQ or SPL. take ur pick...

oh and teknique, i bet i can find a sub better than the w7 for half that price...

i understand u sickcivic. there are way more possibilities out there for much much cheaper though. personally i love JL audio, but i just hated how he said stay away from anything other than jl and infinity...infinity components are great great speakears but thats about it...its all subjective but that statement is so ignorant...DLS Teknique i dont mean to insult u but id like to see ur explination for ur statement. then ill give u mine so we can stay civilized.
