Conclusion: I have 2 of these in a ported box on a JL 500/1 and man let me tell u they hit HARD. My friend said he heard me 2 mins before I got to his house. I live about 7 miles away. If you want good clean hard hittin bass these r the subs for u!
Conclusion: I bought this sub from a friend of mine and it didn't fit in my trunk opening in my car. So I sold it to one of my other friends. I installed it for him. This thing pounds. It is only an entry level sub but its amazing. It has very clear bass. I plugged it to a two channel lightning Audio amp. I bridged it and it is getting about 250 watts rms. I couldn't find anyway to distort the bass.
Conclusion: I bought 2 of these in a seled Jl Audio Box with a 1400 watt Jl Audio amp. Man, that is the deal of the century. The 1400watt amp is just powerful enough for one sub and since i still haven't upgraded my door speakers (that's tomorrows project) I can only put my HU to 25 out of 40. Basically at my max volume i'm only putting 5/16ths of the power these subs can handle and EVERYTHING rattles when they are this high.
Conclusion: I purchased two of these JL's for my '93 camry ....wow. I have had several systems and this puts all of them to shame. Even with a amp not capable of giving them the power they need they still beat harder than the kickers , alpines, memphis , and audiobahn subs that ive had that did have a correct power supply.A good buy for anyone who loves bass.
Conclusion: I bought one of the jlw1 in the prted box from a JL dealer for $350. it was awesome, so i boght another one from sonicelectronix and built a custom box for both of my 13w1's. Keep in mind i only have them powered by a Kenwood amp that gives each approx. 150 watts RMS, they arew in the back of a 98 new Beetle, and i have had to replace the hatch latch twice now.
Conclusion: Quite possibly in my mind one of the greatest entry level subs in the industry. Definately one of the most durable subs out there! Put two of these in a hatch with the right box and it will blow your mind!
Conclusion: I bought 2 of these and i have them in a sealed enclosure and am powering them with a Rockford P325-1 amplifier and they sound great. These two and my amp hit harder than 2 12 inch Rockford p1's and 2 10 inch Rockford p1's on two 900 watt Rockford amps...definitely worth buying for the price!
Conclusion: This woofer has great sound quality. I have had this sub for a few months now in my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 and I havent heard anything better in the same price range. This sub is perfect if you like to listen to all types of music, because it will handle them all. Everything from metal,rock,classic,and rap. Overall I would say this is a great buy if you appreciate great sound quality.
