    General Car Audio Discussion
    Hi, Currently I have sealed enclosure for my JL12W6v2 and it's about 1.06 cu.ft. It sounds good but not superb. And I'm thinking, maybe the guy who told me 30Liters for this sub will be fine, and 5 liter difference won't do anything is bullshitting me. So, I think I should order a new...

    First of all, I am totally under-powering a brand new 12w6v2 in 1.25cu' sealed with like under 200 watts @ 8ohms. My 6.5" C5 components which have served hard on 100 watts RMS each for a couple years are now running bright on the same 4-channel amp as the 12w6v2 is bridged on. The C5's...
