Re: Speaker Porn??

From what I gather, and I'm no expert, he can build stuff that will blow JL out of the water for much less. JL is a name. Not that they aren't good speakers, and people will fight you over how "bad ass" they are, but there is other stuff out there that the average consumer has never heard of that is better and cheaper.

And yeah, that TB box is amazing in my WJ. He's built 4 systems for me and every one of them has been crazy. The one for the GF's xterra was very affordable and it's crazy. Hit's very low and amazingly crisp and clear.

Hopefully, he's going to join up very soon and answer some questions asked above, so keep sub'd. He's been pretty busy lately with his new baby girl.

He'll post up the specifics, but he's literally built one of the loudest SPL systems in the country in the past couple of years.

Re: Speaker Porn??

Great! Looking forward to his presence Discounting the comp installs and systems, JL has had one of the loudest/cleanest sounds from 1 sub (12w7) that I've ever heard. I would love to hear his experiences with others! Sweet - we'll have a sub guy

Sorta, should have clarified. By a few bills I meant like sub $200 haha. I dont pay retail on anything JL. Know a guy so I got the 12w3 for $100 flat. I know there is much better for less but I should have clarified, I dont like to spend more than say $200 on a sub in general and just so happens JL is only thing "good" I can get for under that #. Unless there is something out there in that range I dont know of thats as tight and deep as a 12w3. I think they sound awesome but like I said I know there is wayy better stuff out there.

There is for sure stuff out there in that range that sounds better than a JL, period.

Re: Speaker Porn??

where do u buy these kind of subs?
i looked on ebay for some of the names mentioned and got none


also do u think it would be better to have 1 sub with 1000w rms to match my 1000w mono amp

or to have 2 subs that are 500w rms each?

if 1 sub would do the trick it would be nice to have the added trunk room

Lot's of factors to consider, What resistance is the amp stable to? What resistance are the subs? What is the actual clean output of the amp? etc. etc. etc.



Here's some of the TB box when it was new. It was designed for my E46. It now has a different TB speaker, same specs, though. Long story, lol

Re: Speaker Porn??

Oh, and to answer the question about buying subs. Audio Forums and the manufacturers for starters. I know the TB subs are hand made and I think you pretty much have to know somebody that knows somebody to get one of them. Lot's of the subs in the first set of pics are not production run subs, so you literally can't find them anywhere. Prototypes, etc. that are one of a kind.

2 subs would provide more cone area which would provide more spl but as far a good mix of sq and spl a single 12 like a SSA Icon or X con , Sundown SA 12, Fi Q, or IA would sound amazing. Check out this forum for alot of good info on good equipment.

Re: Speaker Porn??

I'm a big fan of super high quality single 10" setups, personally. But, I'm not into shaking anything outside my own vehicle. I like clean, efficient, crisp bass that doesn't take up my entire cargo area. I'd rather pay more (if I have to, sometimes you don't) for a really good 10 that will stop 2 off the shelf 12s ass.

Re: Speaker Porn??

yea im running 2 alpine type R 10" and i used to love these subs, then i had to get a sealed box cause the ported was way to big, now they are just ****in up due to something failling lol, i need to learn more about wiring subs

anyone know a good site that explains how to wire sub/amp/cap combo with a stock deck [using a line level converter] to read up on so i can try to fix my system, or i guess i can just go back to future shop
thanks
