alrite im going back and forth between 2 12" w6s and not upgrading my stock speakers or 1 12" w6 and getting better speakers. i would rather have 2 12" w6s but i dont have enough money to upgrade the speakers if i do get 2, but i will have enough to upgrade them if i get one. but anyway, for 1 w6 i want to use the 500/1 jl amp but i wanna save some money on a cheaper amp.
so my question, would this amp be legit to use for 1 w6? it says it gives 500wrms at 4 ohm

i take it you want sound quality, if so i would get one w6 and upgrade the speakers cuz thats plenty of bass as is but some nice speakers would sound better with the w6. obviously 2 w6's will get louder if you were planning 2 500/1 on them. but the are sq woofers so they will sound great eitherway

I run 1 10W6 on a 500/1 in a Scion tC and it sounds so lovely. (TM Patrice O'Neill) Go with a solo sub unless you really want the extra output. In either case, don't run that amp on that sub, you'll make it wonder what it did to deserve clipping and square waves.

^^^^^^that would be awesome. a single w6 can get loud enough. i've heard a single w6 setup and you can still get some street pounding bass.

for an amp the jl 300/4 would be perfect but im sure you find other brands for cheaper, but what i have suggested is what i would do in my own vehicle if i had the cash

yea joseph, i would probably go with what you said but like you said, "if i had the cash." im in the same boat there, the main reason i liked the setup i just said is because i can get all that off ebay for around $250 shipped from ebay.

No problem, I have very little experience with the pg amps so I couldn't really comment on them. What ever you choose I hope it works out for you.

no doubt zapco makes one of the best amps around. its just not mentioned too much here cause people are always asking for budget amps.

the setup you named would kick a**, its just i dont have that much money. i would rather have the stuff you named over the stuff i named, money is the only thing keeping me from it.

Yea it was tight, nothing against JL but I think he could pick up alot better sub then what he is getting. Is it w6v2 or no? If not it's not even worth it. I think the DD 2500 series would be a better pick IMO, then throw those AA components up front, amp them and you're set for life. Haha
