Conclusion: I bought a pair of JL Audio 13w6v2d4s. They are wired in parallel down to 1ohm. I have them wired to a rockford fosgate t1501bd amp. My birth sheet reads 1893 actual watts! And let me tell you, these speakers hit really hard, tight, accurate, and low. Had to get ear plugs! I have them in a sealed box so they can handle a lil more power vs. Ported. Had em for about 6months, hittn em hard, and they seem like there getting even better with age. Like a fine wine!
Conclusion: i had the 2x12w6v2 and they pounder with the right amp but i want more more i want that crazy bass but JL is very pricey. I dont know if i want to buy the 13w6 if i wasnt pleased with the 12's but you cant go wrong from the forums ive been reading the 13w6 is equal with the 12w7. I'm interested in buying these though they are great quality subs.
Conclusion: I am running 2 of the jl 13w6v2's in a custom box on a rockford fosgate p1000/2 amp at 1 ohm resistance bridged in my ford expedition and these two pound hard!! Defently worth the money! Will be buying 2 12w7's in my bmw but that's for later talk the w6's flat out pound hard!
Conclusion: I have to say that for the price of JL audio (both the w6 and w7) they are way over rated. I hear many people claim they are the "best" SQ sound quality subwoofer made. This makes me laugh as I have competed since 1994 and if this is sound quality then im Santa Clause! I have had the 13W6 and the 13W7 and have to say that I have found many better subs for way less. I switched to the RE Audio XXX and am much happier and payed less than my W7.
Conclusion: I just bought two of these beast and they pound, I only have a rockfordfosgate 500.1 amp hooked up to them right now so there only getting 250 watts rms each and there rated at 750 watts rms, they are louder then my two type r's at 1200 watts rms when the w6's are getting 250 rms each, my friend has one in his Lexus with a 2 cubic foot box and a 1200 watt rms JL audio amp and up by his mirror the windshield is cracking and they wasn't there before he got the w6, these...
Conclusion: I just bought two 13w6v2 and put them in a 4 cubic foot box, in my s-10, and now I'm waiting for my t1500.1bd to come in. But as of right now I have just a 500 watt rms Rockford Fosgate amp at 1 ohm hooked up to both and they hit so hard, I upgraded from two 12" alpine type r's and had a 1200 watt rms amp at 1 ohm hooked up to both and the 13w6's are just as loud at 250 watts rms each, don't listen to people saying that JL audio is all about SQ, they do sound great but...
Conclusion: Definitely one of the best subwoofers I have ever had the pleasure of listening. Mounted it on a bandpass enclosure with an alpine PDX-M6 amp and the responses are amazing. Recommended to all who enjoy deep and well defined bass.
Conclusion: I decided to try one even though I have never been a fan of JL Audio. The subwoofers performance for the Price tag was way below my expectations. I ran this at 600 watts rms with a Orion amplifier and my opinion was that I have had just as good if not much better from much lower priced subwoofers. I am now running a Audio Que HDC 12 with the same amplifier and it destroys the JL 13W6.
