hey guys, hows it goin? again i'm sorry to do another "which would you choose" thread, but i think i have my sub choice narrowed down to these 2. i had been thinking of the W6 but then a guy at a local store showed me the new W3, and it sounded good. The W3 would save me money on the sub obviously, and some money on my amps, but would there be a big drop-off in getting that instead of the W6? i'm still workin towards the money to get everything, so i want to do it right whenever i buy stuff. If it makes a difference i'm looking for SQ, but wouldn't mind being able to get pretty loud if i wanted it to. I look forward to everyone's input. Thanks in advance, and sorry for the long post!
get the w6 it sounds better and gets alot louder, i mean the w3 sounds good but the w6 sounds better and obviously gets louder. thats what im workin towards right now i just bought my HU and speakers and no doubt in my mind i want the w6v2
the w6 is a pur sq sub more power does not alwsy mean louder as chauncey said the w6 is better but louder u never know depends on install boxes and everything cause most people would put a w6 in a sealed box cause sealed=more sq most of the time and w3 would prob be put in a ported which is 3 db's louder than sealed on avg
anybody who owns a w6v2 will say its better then the w3v3. Its funny because most of these people who actually own 12w6v2's have never heard a w3v3 and just speak on what they are enjoying in there ride.
The new w3v3's are not that far off in SQ from the w6v2's and have the potential to be just as loud if not louder. You will save alot of money and sound just about as nice and get as loud and be more efficiant while doing it and keep your trunk lighter with the weight being less on the w3v3's. I whould go with the w3v3's if your going for a pair of them. Save more money and sound great.
but it is a louder woofer it does matter u put a max amount of power on the w3 and a max aount of power on the w6 the w6 wil be louder . everyone acts like the sub is sq only and it doesent get loud at all but it does bump
thats once again not true joseph im sorry but the w3 as mo put it si just more effiecent and it can be louder i would say they are prob about the same in spl but the w6 sounds better and the w3 can most def get louder if you want it to i have seen people get very loud with them its all about the application
hey guy's why would JL make a cheaper sub sound as good or get as loud as their more expensive sub? they would'nt it would be a awfull move if they wanted to continue to sell the w6 line. I have heard both subs in many different applications, I hear 4 w3v3 12's today that sounded good. The fact is the w6 is a louder sub and has better SQ(flatter BL) more x-max, xsus,ect......... w6 is a better sub hands down.
im not arguing that the w6 is not good it is i know it has the best sq of any sub out i was just sayig depending ont he application the w3 can be just as loud if not louder than the w6 do to variations in install and it can o both ways but hands down and i never denied it the w6 sounds better
thats your prefference bud. You are entitled to that. I happen to disagree. I run a 12w6v2 ported and it sounds just great to me and everyone else who has heard it. Diamond aduio makes nice stuff aswell but to say they will smoke JL thats just rediculious.
I agree with you that the sx being louder then the w3 but look at the price difference! let's compare applaes to apples here buddy. The REXXX is louder then the w7? I will agree with you but many will not JL has many SPL titles under their belt's. I am just personally not a huge w7 fan but I preffer SQ over SPL so neither of the sub's you mentioned make me smile. I disagree with you again about JL all being crap! I will put my w6v2 up against any diamon audio sub in a SQ comp any day of the week and twice on sunday's.
if you say re doesn't have sq you are absolutly wrong again why becouse you are not an installer you do not sell all three brands you only have purchased jl and payed too much for it becouse jl fans are iddiots and can not see that it is overpriced crap made in china now becouse it is mass merchant brand
and i might not be an installer but i have someone very close to me that is, and have both diamond and jl side by side and diamond arent bab but jl is clearly better in my eyes that is. now everyone has there own preference but u have no right to come in here and act like your sh*t dont stink and you all of whats best, and you should know that out of all people mr. dealer
a sx is a spl sub or very close to it, while a w6 is one of the best sq subs on the market. so i dont know y you compared a sx you a w6
yes you are payin alot for a name brand, but i have know no one who is not completely happy with their jl products.
i bet you have never installed one thing in ur life, and you just talkin like u know stuff. because "any good installer" will NO DOUGHT agree that jl is not crap, do some research, and find peopl who dontlike their jl products
"you say re doesn't have sq you are absolutly wrong again why becouse you are not an installer you do not sell all three brands you only have purchased jl and payed too much for it becouse jl fans are iddiots and can not see that it is overpriced crap made in china now becouse it is mass merchant brand"
Don't talk trash when you have no idea about anything that I have done! I was a installer at a local audio shop for 4 years before getting my degree and moving on. I have worked with every brand that you have mentioned and I have my own opinions which differ significantly from yours but they are opinion's as are your's. I just agree that many will disagree with yours.
okay jason i would like to hear your opinion on brands such as dd but i think jl is overpriced in fact the only one i would pay for is the w6v2 i dont like the w7 but there not bad at all if i had to say so the w6 is number 1 in the world in sq right next to the idmax and have u seen the price of re lately maybe you should look into that cause if i am correct they are just as ridiculous as jl.
