I am going to be purchising a system soon and I am debating which system would be louder? The first is (two 12w7's with one JL 1000/1 amp) and the second is (two 15 inch alpine type R's, with one audiobahn A8000t 800 watt amp). I was wondering which would be louder and sound better? Is there anything bad about either one? If so than what? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you!!!
here's a true story. two 12W7 w/ 2 JL 1000.1 (one to each) in the back of a blazer. two 15" Diamond Audio TDXs w/ 1 memphis amp(yes, 1 to both), not even the mojo (the step below) in an explorer. No joke, sitting in the blazer, i couldn't hear the guys subs, i could only hear the TDXs.
I would think the JL stuff you mentioned costs a crap load more than the alpine subs and audiobahn amp you mentioned. I would decide how much you wanna spend, then compare stuff in the same price range.
If you get the alpine type X's it will give the Jl a run for it's "money":-) but just frum the 2 you said, go with Jl
