i have 2 audiobahn 15's now but the surround is pealing they won't be around for much longer i definately want to go w/ jl subs but i have a rockford fosgate bd 1001 amp and the w6v2's won't work w/ that b/c i wan 2. So i was thinkin of either a 12 or 13 w7 but i don't know how the 13 would work w/ that amp and if either of them buy themselves would louder than my 2 15's. So then i was thinkin the w7's are so expensive i could get 3 12w3v2's and that should be the loudest of all those possibilities.

tell me what you guys think

well a single w7 WILL get louder than the 3 12w3v2s in most cases. But i would get the 2 w6v2s lol

yeah, a 12W7 or 13W7 will be louder then 3 12W3v2's, 2 15's and it'll sound better. the W6v2's would be nice too.
not sure the specs on that amp, but you need around 1000 watts to push a 12W7 or 13W7. the 13 can take more without a problem.

If that amp does 500x1 @ 4 0hm and 1000x1 @ 2 0hm then one w7 doesnt really match well with that amp. 3 12w3v2-d4's would be a lil better.

That amp would produce 667 watts with one w7 or 750 watts with 3 12w3v2-d4's. In this case those 3 w3's would probably provide more output than even one 13w7.

If you want 1000 watts two 4 ohm, dual 2 ohm, or dual 8 ohm subs would be the way to go, although if you have the space I think those 3 w3's in a fair size ported enclosure tuned low would crank and sound really nice as well. Make sure you have enough space tho.

If you're not set on JL take a look at the new Brahmas.

They would do well with 500 watts each.
