I have 2 of these in a ported box in my Lincoln Town Car powered by a Hifonics 1800watt Zeus. Lets just say the first song I played, my rear view mirror fell off the first 5 seconds of the song. These subs are a must have if you want loud, crisp clean bass. JL Audio is the best forget what you heard otherwise.

I bought this sub for my sound quality system that I'm building. The sub is high quality and sounds amazing. My first impression is that it works well in a sealed box and is a great sub for rock. It really hits the kick drums hard. I have this sub on my Alpine MRP500 amp and it makes it bump very good. Great high quality , good sounding sub for the price.

Ive had many subs and had JL Audio in most my cars cant beat these subs.Im running two of these 12 inch W3s in a 2006 Chevy crew cab pick up and they knock hard as hell.Im running the JL Audio 1000/1 mono block amp at 4 ohms to keep my amp cooler.Im pushing them in a sealed box cause I got little room to work with.Everyone I talked to wanted me to run 10 inch subs but they dont hit bass notes like twelves do.I did have to modify my seat a little but not much I had it moved foward 2 inches just to give me plenty of room but thats when I was running two 10 inch JL Audio W3s in a ported box with a JL Audio 500/1.The tens sounded good but lacked a little power but everyone thought I had twelves but then again it was a ported box.As for the W3s they are actually rated for 500 RMS a sub and thats 10 inch or 12 inch not 300 RMS like onlinecarstereo says.As for the service on this site and price cant beat it they blow everyones prices right out the door.I suggest you do your research and look at JL Audios website they give the right RMS at least thats how I found out what they can handle and go from there JL Audio customer for life.

great sub. this is the first sub i've ever owned so my opinion is really an un-educated one. i only turn the sub up half way or else i think i'll fly to the moon. however, i've heard other systems before and this thing bangs hard and sounds great. i just have 1 in a sealed enclosure hooked up to a kenwood 1000 watt Mono D amp. i'm sure a JL amp would produce some better quality but this thing holds its own. the technician at my audio shop said i had one of the better sounding systems he's heard. i have kappas all around, doors and back and an alpine 9884 in my 02' alero.
