Conclusion: Great Subs. I got the 8" to fit in my Dcab Tacoma. It sounds great for an 8" sub. Still fills out nice and low. It is in a sealed box and is very accurate and tight sounding. Very comparable to the old Rockford Fosgate HX2 Power series. Would by again.
Conclusion: If you think you need (2) 10's or 12's forget it.. I have (2) 8w7's on a PPI D3000/1 feeding it appox 1000w plus @ 1.5ohms talk about SQ/SQL. Yea, the JL w7 line is expensive we all know that BUT when you have (2) 8's that sound better then (2) 10's/12's (maybe NOT louder but BETTER) thats when JL's...
Conclusion: Once you try JL you will never want to buy another brand again. I previously owned 2 JL 10" W3's and was very nervous about having to downsize my system because of space. This 8" W7 is amazing! W7 is the only way to go, especially if your looking at a little 8" woofer. This thing kicks @$$!
Conclusion: I have an 08 chevy crew cab, I have installed a quality sound system in every vehicle I have ever owned and of coarse wanted another. This one was a challenge due to the limited space under the seats. But these 8" subs are beasts in small size.
Conclusion: Bought 2 of these and built a slot port enclosure out of mdf according to the factory specs. I am using a 1000/1 v2. Just broke em in and they hit so hard for a set of 8's. All my rca and power cables are monster 400 series and the clarity and sq with these subs is amazing.
Conclusion: I purchased this on this website (www.sonicelectronix.com) I had just received it yesterday. Going through the break in period with it right now. I built the enclosure myself using 3/4" MDF using JL Specs. I currently am running this in the vented enclosure off of about 80 watts of Rockford Fosgate.
Conclusion: I was looking for something compact but hit hard. I knew the long line of jl products were quality products. I bought 2 JL 8W7-3 for my 96 impala and wow do they hit hard. I always stick my friends in the front seat to see how they feel and then I show them the trunk and they are amazed.

Conclusion: My order was packed and shipped the same day my order placed. Very quick arrival time. Extremely high quality product. The JL Audio 8W7 is AMAAAZING. Previously I owned two 10"W3's and was worried about having to downsize in my new vehicle to an 8".
