Ok, I was planning on getting 2 JL Audio 10W6's but now I'm looking at maybe just one 10W7. What do you guys think will sound best? I'll be getting a JL 500/1 amp for which ever ones I get.

I think the W7 is the better SUB but you need the JL 1000/1 AMP to push it good and hard. :headbang:

Yeah, I think JL in 5 years will come out with a 18". The 13" W7 is better than most 15"

the new 10w6 is made up of the same basics as the 10w7...you might not have enough room to put the one 10w7 because it need lot of clearance...i was trying to put two 12w7 in my ext.cab and they told me i wouldnt't be able to fit them in the cab...that to make them fit i would have to put them in the truck bed...now i am going to put 3 12w6's in with a us amp 1000x....the choice is up to you!

(CHEVY01XTREME) Go to another shop you can get 2 10W7's in a ext.cab. One 10W7 needs a max of 1.5 cu. ft. of BOX with two you need 3 cu.ft. this is recommened By JL. Also the best box is a slot ported one. You have over 3 cu.ft. of space in a ext. cab. GO TO ANOTHER SHOP IT CAN BE DONE. Also a sealed box 10W7's max is 1.357 cu. ft. for one. Remember not all shops are equal some are alot better at making boxes than others. I hope this helps :mixed:

I'm going to be changing my setup soon 2 2 10" w6's over the rf ones i have right now, and i'll probably keep the 15" i have in there, cause that thing slams with onl 400 watts going to it, but i'd say go w7 if your going to do just one, it'll be worth it

Re: Wanna hear my plan

Well, if they made 15's thatd be cool. but W6's are beast, they are the hardest hitting while keeping the most pure SQ ihave ever heard. W7 is rediculous, i want just cause of how big and loud the they are. but i assure you two ten W6;s will be louder and better sounding that one 10W7. JL even recommends that W6 is the best of both worlds...i have one W6 12 in my Reg cab S10 and it makes my windows flex and make seats come loose all the time. W6 for sure. W7 is awesome though. id get it just for bragging. haha

i say go for the 2 10w6's. I had a pair of the original 10w6's in my x-cab ranger that I had and they sounded amazing while still getting loud. Some of the best sounding drivers I have ever heard.

I think the W7 is the better SUB but you need the JL 1000/1 AMP to push it good and hard. :headbang:
No you don't need 1000 watts to push a 10w7, 500 is more than enough, ask toad.

Good job bumping a 7 year old thread :tup:

:haha:

I'm like looking at these usernames and I'm like "since when did we get so many different people in the sound and security section?" :haha:
