I have a dillema. I will be using all CDT for the components. For the subs I can't decide between 2 JL Audio 13w7 with 2 JL Audio 1000/1 amps or if I should go with 1 Treo SSX 15 in a vented box with the JBL BPX 2200.1 amp. The JBL amplifier is rated at about 2450 watts RMS and the Treo SSX 15 can take up to 2400 watts RMS. Which one do you guys suggest and why? This will be going in a 2004 Nissan Maxima. Thanks
286.3sq in. of surface area for the 13W7s 32mm one-way Xmax per 13W7.
176.7sq in. of surface area for the Treo 15" Xmax unknown on the Treo.
I'd take the JLs. each 1000/1 will put out an actual power of ~1200+wRMS so we'll call the power between the JLs and the JBL equal for this.. it'd be close enough not to matter a great deal. You'd need to double the power just to add +3dB in the end anyway, so a few watts here or there won't affect your outcome.
