i got two of these at 1 ohm with a hifonic brutus 1606 and it pounds and im still breakin them in. ive had every sub from sony,rockford,kicker,poweracoustik you name it these hit way harder
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.
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.
Hands down the best 12in sub for the money and no to mention the power. I have 3 of the 12w3v3 2 ohm and people dont ride in my car it hurts em that bad. Power em with the new slash 1000/1 and you got a mean set up
I have 4 0f these in the back of my 96 cadillac with 2 500/1 JL amps,hands down the best system ive ever owned.
I have 4 of these subs in the back of my 96 cadi,with 2 JL 500/1 amps, hands down the best system ive ever had,use to be a kicker fan, now im converted hope to step up to the W7's soon.
K i just updated my trunk with 2 more 12w3s for a total of 4 hooked up too the 1000/1v2 i am bangin down the street these are the subs for the price
Absolutely amazing!!! My best friend has 2 of these with only 400 watts goin to each and they pound!!! He has to roll his windows down or they will shatter. Amazing Woofers!!
i have two of these in my trunk and it is nasty, you can feel em commin, i got em hooked up at my local sound shop and they did it right, it gives you a head ache if you bump em to loud, my one buddy said "the back seat feels like a massage chair" if your lookin for a clean hittin sub at a good price, you found it
I Have two of these with a tma t500 running each i get pulled over all the time for loud stero
I have two of these in my Tahoe running on an alpine mrp 1000/1 mono ch amp......sounds simply amazing
I got 3 of these in my nissan maxima and man do they shake my car up! These subs are a great buy! Gonna upgrade to w7s soon tho
I have 3 of these in a 2003 Mustang and I've yet to hear any Mustang this loud. I have it set up with a Brutus 1600 at 1.3ohms. I guaratee you would be absolutely satisfied with this product!!!
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.
I have 2 of these in my accord 6speed coupe with a jl 500/1 amp the amp is not half way powered and these things slamm deep clean bass my roof and window flex im getting one more
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 am running two of these subs in a sealed enclosure with a Rockford 1000 watt mono amp. The sound level can be violent at times. The recommend sealed enclosure is 1.25 cubic feet per sub. I would recommend a 1.75 to 2.0 cubic foot box, it would help with the lower frequency response and keep the 60 hertz frequency from being so violent. Overall very happy with the subs, I would buy these again.
