I listen to Reggae and dub, Sublime-esque music. I want clean accurate bass w/ sufficient power, i was thinking about a 12w6v2 or a 10w6v2, they both take the same amount of wattage, would the 10 be nearly just as loud and more accurate? which should i get?
A lot of people (competitors included) prefer the W6v2s over the W7s for SQ. The W7s have more excursion, equaling longer voice coil, larger gap, more inductance, etc. As far as 10W6v2 vs. 12W6v2, I like the 12". Better balanced and same power requirement, so why not get more displacement? SQ of both is close.
If you read the review of the 12W6v2 by Car Audio and Electronics magazine, he calls it "the best subwoofer he's ever tested for CA&E". He had tested the 10W7 prior to that, if that gives you an idea. I feel it's a very well balanced subwoofer if you're willing to fork out the $$$.
Yeah at this point I'm more worried about SQ that'll fit my application. I'll wait til I get the money for the RIGHT sub(s). I'm gonna be at 1000 watts @ 1 ohm or 500 @ 2. If I go two subs (which I would have to to get 1000 watts w/ w6's) I'm a bit worried that I'll be overpowering my mids and highs or wastin money on extra drivers that I don't need since I'll haveta turn the gain down anyways.
What about a single 10 or 12 say a brahma or an IDmax. Sure would be cheaper and I can get either in a "1 ohm" version. I like playin low and all but mainly I'm into SQ(got some classical I listen to) and gigantic drum hits.
My 10w3's are startin to get on my nerves. Hopefully things will improve when I get this new amp, but if they don't....... They probably are not so hot. I played the first track of "Dark Side of the Moon" like you suggested and i could defintely hear that heartbeat as much as I could feel it.
I dunno. I should probably try a sealed enclosure, but after looking at winISD I don't see how you can get the extended bass response with sealed as opposed to ported.
By the way, Fishy, that heartbeat does eventually move into audible range, it's at the very first of the track that it should be inaudible. Needed to clarify that, after a certain point you should hear it.
