3JL w6's v. 2 Alpine 12" Type R's


Unregistered guest
I was considering buying 3 8" JL w6's (the older model from at least 3yrs ago) in a custom sealed box from someone I know. But, I wanted to know how would they compare against 2 Alpine 12" type R's (not the 2005 model)in a sealed box. I wasn't too sure if it would be pointless to buy 3 of these 8" JL's or not? Would those 8"'s actually produce noteworthy SPL or not? Any help would be appreciate

the type r's will definitely win in spl. the 8's will sound better. Listen to both setups if possible and pick the one u like.
