Question about Jl Audio 12W3 Car Subwoofer
I have two JL Audio 12 inch subwoofers. The name or should I say JL name is 12w1v2-4ohm subwoofers, the problem is I dont know how many watts they can handle as far as amplifier wise. When I bought theem the man said 500 watts is that true or can i add more or should it be less
This is not a 500w sub, Jl audio 12w1v2 4Ohm subs are 150w RMS. Therefore do not power each sub with more than 150w of continous power. A 300w 2 channel amp would power these more than adequately and thats wired 4 ohm - each on a separate channel but if you buy a 2 Ohm stable amp then you can buy a smaller one which is 300w RMS at 2 Ohm - bridged, therefore getting the most out of your amp and probably saving money.

500watts sounds about right to me,i wouldnt go any higher as you risk popping the sub and haveing a melt down in the coil section of the subwoofer.
