First of all, I gotta say thanks to sonic electronics for having my products shipped in 2 days. Some of that goes to FedEx and the driver for making it happen too obviously so thanks to them too. Not only did I get my speaker the day it said, but I got it in the morning so I was able to get it installed the same day, 1 day earlier than I planned!!
Now the JL 12" sub! The absolute best speaker I've ever purchased. I will never use another brand. I've had kicker, fosgate punch, max and pioneer and none of them come close. I should have used JL a long time ago. And the subwoofer was in a ported box already. Its is the most crisp and clean bass I've had, and I only got 1!! Jts hooked up to the pioneer that is pushing 300 watta by 4 ohms so its perfect(1500 or 1600 max I think). Got the amp for 129 from sonic. Its not so loud that it disturbs the neighbors, but it increases the quality and fun of music in my car. However it does hit hard though. My gf said it's too loud for her turned up,and I dont even have the bass DB turned up to max. It's about 80%. I turn it down for rap and then it up for rock because rap bass is soooooo OP.
Honestly I think one JL 12 in that ported box is all anyone needs unless you want to disturb the neighbors and piss people off. You're more likely to get ticketed that way too. I dont know how this speaker hits so clean. People say you have to break it in and it sounds better. I fail to see how my sub can sound any better!! I am honestly blown away. All I can say is if you're still reading and unsure which one to get, whether you want 1. 2, 3 or 4, if you get these JL 0's you will NOT be disappointed! Not only worth every penny but I feel like I owe JL more money because these are too good. Why would anyone pay 1k for their best speaker when this is enough and its 120? Maybe because the others just hit even harder? Idk. I feel like of the bass is so loud it hurts then it's not enjoyable. I'm so happy I cant even sleep rn. Gotta make this review. Anyway,stop what you're doing and buy this speaker. Trust me bros/gals
