Summary: These speakers hit hard!!! I put these subs with the jl1/1000 amp. But I put them in a very cheap box.. take my advise get the best box u can find.. I got my amp turned up about 1/4 and sounds like the box is about to blow up! I was told by the I installers I need a box twice the thickness.
Deep, unimaginable bass that you have to hear to believe

Summary: I have 2 of these bad boys in my car each on a jl 500/1 and they sound incredible! I rocked 2 12W3s for a couple years before I upgraded to these, and now I couldn't imagine looking back. One of these does what 2 W3s can do. It rattles my inner ear, blurrs my vision and pisses everyone off that rides with me. A lot of people talk about the high price of JL, in my opinion you pay for what you get and you get deep perfect bass that doesn't miss a beat.
Conclusion: I have 2 12W6's, but only use one. I got the first one on trade and decided I wanted two. So I found a second one that needed a new surround. I repaired the foam. After a break-in period, I hooked it up to my KX500.2 amp and realized the amp only takes the pounding of one sub. I'm using a JL basswedge deep slot ported box designed for the 12w1 sub. 500-700w is plenty of power. I prefer the oldschool class A/B amps of my generation. (MTX,RF,KICKER,ORION, etc...

Conclusion: I have had these in 2 of my suv now for the last 7yrs started with 1 on 500w rms and now moved up to 2 with hd750/1 .I'm very happy with the way it sounds with my factory set up in a sealed box they hit hard And tite .I like sound clean sound and I have to say this is the best sub i heard that sound good with any kinda of music you play.
Conclusion: I bought 2 of these subs and they shake the ground, I have them hooked up to the latest T1500-1bd mono amp. I'm currently running them @ 1ohm, I would recommend it to anyone who likes the power bass..
Summary: People always have a preference but MINE is JL Audio. I was going to get the 12W3 but Im glad I got the 12W6 instead!! The sub hits hard & not to sound cliche' but its load & clear also. I have 500W Alpine MRP-M500 pushing the sub which is definately underpowered (got a good deal on the amp), This model can really handle more than that but I'll upgrade later ($).
Conclusion: I paired this JL Audio SGR-12W6v2 sub/box combo with a JL Audio XD600/1 amp. I installed it rear facing in an MKV GTI. This thing hits so hard people in other cars think they have a sub too. Amazing sound quality. Crisp, clean, fast responding bass. A concern of mine was how fast could a 12" sub respond for double bass in Heavy Metal. Let me tell you this thing hits double bass flawlessly, while it can also shake your eyeballs with the super low frequencies of dubstep.
