have one of these in a small truck box, off a 300w g1300 jl amp, hits really good for the small truck box its mounted in. Good sub for the money.
I have 2 of these subs in a sealed box powered by a TMA 500.1 T2 amp In a 94 eclpise and they hit hard great buy for these subs.
i had 2 10w0 hitting 135 no distortion on 700 watts plan on getting 4 of these running at 1 ohm at 600 watts to see what i get probably a second amp lol
For anyone wanting to have a great sounding stereo system they should look no further than JL AUDIO. I've been useing JL AUDIO since I was 16 thats been 10yrs ago. I have these hooked up two the JL500/1v2 and it pounds my GEO Prizm/LSI
i just bought these subs for my 04 civic and these are the cleanest sounding subs ive heard for a cheap set hats off to jl audio for another great product
I got 3 of these in the back of my jeep with an Orion HCCA-D1200 amp. they can definately get loud, and they sound VERY clean. Everytime the bass hits, my fuzzbuster starts dancing. Overall, im not disappointed.
I have 2 of these in the back of my F-150 and they straight up RATTLE my truck.... I bought them used too. if your buying subs definitely go JL... Its worth the extra money!
Got 2 of these from my car audio shop and I love them. I'm running these off of a boston acoustic GT-22 Amp and I hit a 135.5 db on a term lab mic. On a sound decision mic outlaw I hit 154.5 about a month and a half ago. These subs are freaks and deff. worth the money if you're not tryin to go big. Thinking about upgrading to w3's though
i have 2 of these subs in my 93 nissan pickup with an autoteck 1000w amp in seaed boxes behind my seat. these subs deffenatly pound for the money. if your looking for good quality subs without breakin the bank these subs are for you.
its true what they say about JL Audio, I had my set of JLW0v1 12 ich 125 RMS in 1996 with an alpine 3544 amp driving them, they should knock like thunder, however these v2 rcok twice as much with the 2008 Alpine M1000 amp. JL audio it a class of its own.
great product, very well built. i have a pair of these in a sealed box running with a rockford prime 500.1. sounds nice. i was torn between these and the rockford prime subs to match the amp, but ive had the jl w0's before, and knew what i would be getting quality wise. these also seem to look a lot like the hifonics 12's that cost $35 here at ocs.. i know hifonics make good stuff too, but wasnt too sure about their low end stuff... might be worth looking at however.
This sub is amazing! I had one of these subs in a sealed box built to perfectly match this subs recommended sealed box volume. I had a 380w RMS Pioneer GM-5300T 2-channel amp running it. I could NOT find the distortion point.. I turned the gain all the way up and I also turned the boost all the way up on my stereo. I could not hear any distortion. It was loud as hell. I ended up turning it down to keep the amp safe.
This thing bumped harder than my current 12" Alpine type-r in a sealed box running off an infinity kappa one 500 rms.
This sub is what I call quality.
