"JL Audio 12w6v2" VS. "Kicker S12L7"


What is the major differences in these subwoofers? What type of amp would be ideal to push two (4-ohm) of either sub? Also, what other sub sounds better than the Kickers at comparable prices. I am very intersted in purchasing either or, but I need to become more knowledgeable before doing so.

JL=loud and really good sound quality.
KICKER=really loud but not so good sound quality.

the JLw6v2 is DVC and can be run at 2 or 8 ohm but not 4.

I would have to say the brahma. I think they sound better and are more economical.

For both SQ and SPL in one package, Use Image Dynamics ID MAX.

Dun forget to partner them with a high power amplifier.

I don't know much about JL except that they are good but way over priced. I had a Kicker S12L7 in a 3.25 cu. ft. ported box with a Alpine MRP-M350 700 watt amp and it hit 144.1 in a Ford Ranger Extended cab. You can find 04 Model L7s for around $220 w/o shipping and i bought the alpine amp for 200$ at my local shop.The box was also bought at my local shop. I had it built for 115$. There was a guy with 2 12" either W3s or W6s that hit 147 or so I think they were W3s though.
