Deciding Between JL Audio 12-W3V3 or Alpine Type R (JL XD 600/1 amp)


Recommended Posts

Edit:

Just realised you can get 2 ohm JL W3's, my dumbass brain didn't realise why there's two of almost the same deal on audiosavings.

to tell you the truth, subwoofers are sometimes biased towards being a overall loud sub and being a SQ oriented sub, but a great deal of it is the enclosure and environment that determines overall SQ and loudness. :shrug:

True.

Well, the enclosure is a combo thin from audiosavings. it's the A-trend vented one. That's for both deals, and it includes 14 AWG wire, 2 spade terminals, 10 drywood screws.

smh, a pre-fab won't sound amazing, but it's a start.

If you got mostly JL stuff in your car right now, might as well just stick with it. you can't go wrong either way. And I'm sure if you have your electrical up to snuff, the JL amp will do more than RMS...the 500/1 was benched on another website and it was putting out closer to 700 RMS.

Between JL and Alpine id go with the SA 12 :drink40:

Lol what? Aren't you just clever! Fyro: JL audio has nice products and all... But they're way overpriced on everything. One of my local shops here try to buy it wholesale to sell cheaper to us but it's still expensive even then!

Yeah I get what ya mean there.

But, I'm getting that deal for $370 AUD for the sub, enclosure and wiring from audiosavings. So, I think it's a fairly good deal, and I've already got two sets of C2-650s in my car and an XD 600/1 ready to rock the boot :P

(soz, 2x post)

I think you just changed my mind. Thing is, I'll be needing screws and wiring, and that ain't cheap either. But damn they look like they slam.

Now contemplating either the JL or these, but... damn the Skars look badass.

screws and wiring are very cheap. You just need some basic wood screws and you sure don't need any fancy speaker wire, just get some decent 12g and you will be fine.
