Just bought new alpine cda- 9851 was going to get sont xplod amp. I have a pair of 12' Zuez Subs in a bandpass bx that i got for free.I wanted to get a pair of newer subs within a budget of 450 ebay status. I was looking at 2 JL 12w1v2 and 2 12'volfenhag. Gice me some suggestions at what to get and what hits hard. I need some help on what subs are cleanest and loudest in a bandpass box. Give me suggestions on other jl audio subs that might be good or any other brnad you recomend. Thanks for your help.

okay dont do that.... you cant have a range rover with that system... okay 450 you want... get an avalanche, or atlas or maybe a 12w6v2 if you want JL. then build your own box... or have some1 you know do it... call up whoever made the sub and ask them for specs on the box... then make it out of .75 inch mdf and sell the rest of ur stuff and get an amp that suits it

What the difference between getting two 12's to just 1? I dont want so much bass my music doesnt sound good you know? I want to get some subs that people can hear me coming from a distance but also it hits hard and clean andnot distored.

i would say JL just because they are much better quality ... i actually havent heard either.... but all the subs i name wont distort nearly as soon as the subs ur talking about... for your case i would lookin into an atlas 12 at www.ascendantaudio.com its 145 dollars and it has one of the best motors made... it has great SQ and can reach 140 db in a ported enclosure... also you only need about 250-300 watts to make it loud

jl will be way better, but i would suggest spending 350 on a subs, and then 100 on a good install...
80 percent install 20 percent equip, ill build you a new box, and for 350 you could get 2 p3's or 2 w3v2's maybe, maybe even a 12 inch eclipse Ti, YEA get a 12 inch eclipse ti and not the sony amp

get a JL audio 500/1 and the two atlas' and do not run them in a bandpass enclosure, run them sealed if you dont want to over power your music. I would deff go that route and the JL w1v2's really arnt that good IMO I think the JL line starts to sound good at the w3v2's and up. I would go atlas!

Its not that i want to over pwoer, but rather have good clean sound bass that is loud enough to hear me coming, i really want bandpass bcz i dont like sound of the subs jus open.(i may be confuse, the diff between sealed and bandpass id that sealed is just the norm and bandpass has all da boxes w port tubes and plexi, right?)

i disagree with all of you....

Why do you get a Range Rover, bc its cheap and has the best performance? - no because it looks cool and is expensive - yes


So logically he needs to rock w7s bc they are overpriced and the status symbol in subs

seriously the atlas is a great woofer but it looks ugly and plain - if you have a $60,000 car i think you can spring for a bit extra


all this is null and void if its like a 82 rover though lol

2 12w6v2s for 380 a piece
1 jl 1000/1 for 700

you will be spending a lot but it will sound great look smooth and elegant

and the jl amp will give you a bit of a matching system and its a great amp

i didnt say they looked better, but if NT was going for a good looking sub, Eclipse is where its at haha, But the jl is just a smooth dull black surface, at least the atlas has some contour, or the ava does, idk lol
