Question about Jl Audio 12W7 Car Subwoofer
I currently have (2) 10W7 in a ported box and a 1000 watt mono JL Audio amp. I miss the low's I can only get with 12" speakers but am running out of trunk space.
A technician suggested I go with 1 sealed box with 1 10W7 and a 500 watt amp and a 1 12W7 ported box with a 1000 watt JL amp. No additional trunk space will be needed.
I listen to smooth Jazz and really miss the low rumble I use to get with 12's but I have never mixed a sealed and ported box like this with two different size speakers and mono amps of different watts.
The technician says he guarantees I'll be happy but this is new territory for me.
Should I just go with two 12's with 2 1000 watt amps to play it safe or has this been proven to be a winning combination.
I think he wants to seal the box with the 10W7 to keep the size of the box smaller but with only a 500 watt amp won’t it be overshadowed by the 12W7 driver with a 1000 watt amp. What would this sound like and will it give me lower frequencies without sounding all muddy.
Well i don't know your budget, but if that's not really and issue, right now at best buy, alpine type E, 10" subs, peak is 750w and rms is 250w, each is 129.99. Alpine type R, 10" subs, peak is 1500w and rms is 500w, each is 199.99. These are the best subs i found at best buy. You could sell your current subwoofers and purchase those, and you'd save space and still get the lows you want. Goodluck
