If price is not an issue then 1000/1 is a great amp. JL's / series amps are excellent quality.

the 500/1 will push it very well. A buddy of mine worked at a shop that sold JL and he had his 500 on a 12w7 in a HO box and it hit pretty hard. He TOLD me that a 1000/1 voids the w7's warranty. I believe him bc i know him pretty well, but thats saying he's not wrong. I'd suggest calling JL to see, but honestly i think youll be happy with the 500.

Definitely get the 1000/1. The 12W7 is rated for for 750 watts. You always want the amplifier to have more power than you need, not less.
