I found a great price on it. But have no clue what type of amp to buy or if i should make a ported or sealed box. Im putting the box in the place of the center console.

Matt, I actually have a sealed 8w7 in the JL prowedge box, and the SQ is excellent. JL recommends the 250/1, but I am running a JL 500/1 and the thing really thumps. It can definitely handle the 500 watts rms.

One thing about that seller, I was thinking of buying from him too, but you might want to check out his rating/feedback. It looked pretty shady to me. He has only 5 positive ratings, and if you look at the auctions the feedback was left on, they're for all really small things. And one of them was a set of knives. It seemed really shady to me, that a person with an eBay store that is selling a bunch of w7's (he has a lot of different auctions) doesn't have any positive feedback on any big name amps or subwoofers.

I am actually looking to sell my setup (JL 500/1 and 8w7) for $500 + shipping. I originally paid like $300 for the sub, the JL box alone is close to $100, and the amp was $300 new off eBay. All the stuff has been used for about 6 months (the amp about 8 months), I'm just getting rid of it to try something more SPL oriented. The sub definitely sounds amazing, and looks pretty awesome in the box, I'm just looking to try something new.

I live in New Brunswick NJ, zip 08901, (if you're close enough you're welcome to come pick it up). If you're interested and want to contact me by email maybe we can work something out. I have an eBay account with a bunch of positive feedback, and have PayPal setup also, so whatever you want. Give me an email if you're interested.
