Hey guys,Can a sub like the 10w7 get as deep as 12 or 15 inch sub. Because every car audio man tells me that 10 inch subs are more for jazz and pop listeners and bigger subs are more for rap.I listen to rap and r@b more.Can the jl 10w7 achieve the same amount deepness of a 12inch and 15inch sub.
If you put it in a ported box and tune it low, it will sound as deep or deeper than a 12" or 13" sealed because it is so authoritative. Other than that, apples to apples, the 12W7 and 13W7 will get a little deeper than the 10W7.
Hey i just ordered a 10w7 in a H.O. Wedge ported jl box and will run it off the jl 500/1 amp. I really wanted to go with the 12w7 but with the 500/1 the 10w7 i will get the most out of that sub setup. am i right?
The 500/1 is a good match for the 10W7 or the 12W7. You'll push the 10W7 to it's potential more easily with the 500/1, but the 12W7 will get louder with the same amp and still perform very well with the amp.
How much is the differance i will notice???? what kinda differance. you say itll be deeper but will it be noticable? The guy at the shop said that the 12w7 sounded alot better with the 1000/1 cause they had a customer with mysetup upgrade to a 1000/1 with a 12w7 from a 500/1.
The 1000/1 wakes it up a little bit, but it will still perform well with the 500/1. Just my personal preference as far as 12" over 10", you'll notice a bit more depth and punch with the 12", but it's not drastic. SPL of the 12" is higher.
I think ill stay with the 10W7 cause its not gonna make a major differance. I think this 10W7 in that H.O. Wedge Box will be very loud and clear and more boomy then my 2 12w6v2's i currenty own and alot nicer to my electrical system.
