I just installed a pr of JL W6's in an IB in the trunk on my Regal.. I love it.. As for which'll sound better I suggest you get a comparable sub & put it in ur trunk.. IB's run below the RMS of ported/sealed boxes.. My car is very loud & clear inside the car while from the outside it sounds like I have a pr of high quality 6x9's or maybe even 10's playing.. No trunk rattle, no lights dimmer, just SMILES on my face..

2x12" have more cone area and more displacement which = lower distortion for a given SPL compared to 1x13" subwoofer.

Kelvin
X2 cone area>excursion every time.

That makes a lot of sense. The sheet that comes with the IDMAX12s says for large box to use IB.
My IDMAX12s shoud be here by Friday. I will try out the IDMAX12s next weekend and let you guys know how they sound.
I have committed the following link to memory, but here's a shortcut to all of the PDFs and manuals that ID has listed: imagedynamicsusa.net/pdf

sorry, still getting to those 5 posts but I felt I needed to share this!
