here again with the topic of which amp to use for the 12w7. i know it runs at 750 rms and i can either underpower it with the 500/1 or over power with the 1000/1. 1000/1 lot of money so would the 500/1 get the job done. i am looking for sound quality which is why i picked up JL but is i also want it to be loud. will the 500/1 cover all this
maybe you should look for an amp that puts out 750. whatever you do, do NOT over power it, thats how subs get destroyed
would u go with a ported or vented box. they say vented for sound quality and ported for loudness. well since im already gettin the cleanest sounden stuff how bad could it sound in a ported box. because after gettin sound quality its time to work on it pounding
???? vented and ported are the same thing. I think you mean sealed and ported. I perfer sealed with the 12W7. Thats how mine is set up, and it sounds great. A well maid ported box sounds great, and will be a little bit louder. So its really up to you.
