Hey everybody! I would like to know what's the difference between these two subs with regard to SQ? I'm looking to get either (only 1 to be driven by 350 watt amp) and want some opinions on how they fare against each other. What are the advantages and disadvantages of going with the 10" or 12"? Thanks in advance!
I perfer 12s over 10s. Both will sound good, and the JL W6V2 is a great sub. However I like the 12s ability to play the lower freqs. The ten will seem a little more punchy, and since I listen to a wide varity of music, I want something that is a little better balanced.
I was faced with this situation too and thankfully went with the 12w6v2. The sq between them is not really noticeble and tha 12 will catch those lower base tones. And for the amp 350 watts is ok but if you're going to get one of those subs they work really good with the jl 500/1 amp.
Ok, thanks for the advice guys, i'll most likely go with the 12! I will be using my old kicker DX350 to power it. I know it's not much (rated at 350 on 2 ohms) but it'll have to do because my budget doesnt permit an amp upgrade at this point. By the way, what size enclosure (sealed) do you recommend?
I would go about 1.25 cubes. Thats right in the middle of what JL recomends. Should give you a good all around balance. If you get it done and you think you need a little more power, add a little over 1lb of polly fill and see if that helps. Should make the box seem a little bigger to the sub and give you a little more punch till you have the money to upgrade your amp.
