i was just wondering what peoples experiences and opinions are with the 8w7. i was wondering when hooked up to a 250/1 what it could be compared to in loudness. what are some more common subs that it is as loud as or louder than? and what capabilities does it have for spl in a sealed box made to the specifications of JLs site? let me know what ya think i'll greatly appreciate it thanks.

the jl w7 does not compare to any common subwoofer.
period.
the w7 is the best sub on the market and is equivalent to 3 12" subs when matched up with a 250:1 or a 500:1 amp depending on size and number of subs.

i wouldnt go as far as saying that JL W7's are the best subs on the market,but they are great subs. they just are'nt the best. what about RE and Adire Audio and Image Dynamics or Eclipse?

And you base this on what, something someone told you? Get your facts straight, I've heard too many people say things like that. There are thousands of great acoustic engineers out there and people tend to neglect this and act like Jesus came down from heaven and put his hand on the W7 and blessed it. It's a subwoofer, JL didn't create magic with it, all subs have the same design principles, and the SQ and SPL is directly related to it's motor structure and suspension compliance, just like every other sub that came out of manufacturing. It's a great sub, but it doesn't make others obselete either, JL Audio isn't the only competent audio company out there. There are plenty of subs out there that will be equal to or better than the W7 in SQ and SPL, and be cheaper at that.
