New Subs
Alright JG, my birthday is coming up in a little less then two months and I'm gonna buy myself some new subs :D

I'm currently running JL 12w1v2 with Alpine MRP-M500 amp.

I was looking at JL 12w3v3 with JX1000 amp. Any opinions, thoughts, recommendations is appreciated! Thanks

Re: New Subs
Have you looked into the w7's?

Re: New Subs
I did but it's a little bit out of my price range at 900 a pop. I want to own them one day but just can't right now.

Re: New Subs
Ive run JL's since high school. IMO def the best sub you can buy, but they do think alot about them. The 12w3v3 is an outstanding sub as are the ones you have. With this in mind why do you want to change? Just asking but i have 2 of the older jl 12w3s and i wouldnt ever think of getting rid of them. if you go to w7 you will only need 1. It will far exceed your expectations. 1 properly wired/installed JL will out perform any other sub out there.
2 is a waste of money unless you dont care about your hearing in 5-10 years. If i were you id keep the amp and step up to a single w7 with a JL specified box and you will save a good bit. Just tweek the amp so that it will run the w7. Either way it will kill you hearing before you kill the sub or amp. If i can be of any more assistance just ask.

Re: New Subs
I have the 12w1v2 I just realized I mistyped that above. I don't know if that changes your opinion or anything.

I don't have a good reason in all honesty. I'm just looking for an upgrade I guess. I heard the w3v3 and fell in love with them. I love my current set-up and it was a amazing first system. But its hard to not upgrade!

I guess I'll have to find someone with a w7 and listen to it.

Re: New Subs
If you get 1 jl 10w7 its all you will ever need if its in the correct box...

Re: New Subs
That's so much smaller and compact. Look at all the room you still have.

I definitely need to find someone with one and listen.

It louder than most 2 12" setups less room deeper bass... and then you turn the little button and the car goes boom!

Re: New Subs
:eek: :wtf::w00t::headbang:Dudeee thats....ridiculously awesome!! It sounded amazing through my headphones (good thing I bought the bass package otherwise I'd need a new pair lol). That thing kicks ass! and look at the flex!!

What amp are you running? and what's the sub running at? I'm pretty sure I might have just been sold....

Do they make any sort of protective grille or anything for it?

Re: New Subs

im running a 500/1 on mine and it kills looks like he had a 900/5

Re: New Subs
but the 500/1 is plenty? Does it overwhelm the music and distort so all there is is bass? In the video, its just a ton of bass. Im sure he changed the settings to make it like that but I just wanna double check.

In my current setup I have it so that I can hear the music and the bass but I can manipulate it so all there is bass incase anyone ever wants to bumpoff! :D
