Best subwoofer

I have owned and approved of only jl. The w6 is by far the best for its price. I paid 4 hundred for it used and feel it is definitely worth it once in and set up.

good subs

I'm running 2 12 w6v2's loud subs but bass wise don't hit that hard. I used to run 2 kicker l7's they did on volume 10 what the jl's do on 20.

Real Power Subs

I bought 2 of these subs and they shake the ground, I have them hooked up to the latest T1500-1bd mono amp. I'm currently running them @ 1ohm, I would recommend it to anyone who likes the power bass..

Greatest Sub Ever!

This is by far the best sub i have heard ever, i have two in a ported downfiring custom box and wow do they pound, the bass is so accurate and clean, JL Audio is the best!

Great Buy!!!

I love this speaker it takes a beating everyday with no problems and Sonic Electronix had the best price for the best speaker on the planet.

I bought this sub over a year ago, have it installed in my '71 Monte Carlo. I had a terrible amp hooked up to it at first, but now I have a nice Sony powering it at about 580 RMS.

This thing is rediculous... There are kids at my school with 3 12's and i roll up and watch their faces melt.

Put this baby in a sealed box, and listen to it do whatever you want it to. Bump hard, sound amazing, blast your rear view mirror to the floor.

Great Subwoofer, definitely worth the money!

this is the way to go....

i have two of these in a ported box in my extended cab s-10. i used to have them in my chrysler and they were louder than my four rockford fosgate p2s in a sealed box. don't get me wrong rockfrod has great subs, but the jl w6 is better. i currently am running the off a 1050.2 but getting a soundstream 2000d to power them better. every one compliments me on my subs. better sounding and louder than the memphis mojo 12. these subs WILL NOT let you down. i would also recommend getting another battery because these will dim all you lights.
