Mind pair, S4 on both, both come with mounting ring and original grill. Excellent shape, even better sound! I know I will hate myself, but $ is tight.

$215 48 CONUS shipped for both.

I'm very tempted to pick these up. The only thing to know is that they require a perfectly sealed enclosure. Sealed as in, no carpet between the sub and the box, and use foam gaskets. Make sure nothing leaks, including the terminal cup. If you do that, you will have a tight, accurate sub that can take lots of power. Super super acurate woofers...

Most people assume that if the woofer moves slowly when pushing down on it, and rises to center slowly after, that it's sealed. That is a leaky box. A perfectly sealed box would mean you couldn't push the woofer down much, and when you did, it would immediately return to it's resting state...

I know you said money was tight, but would you have any interest in trading for a JBL W12GTi MKII? Might be an easier sale since it's a little newer than these... If not - free bump!

I still believe these are the best subs I have ever used for SQ, I've used the 8,10,&12lf

damn good deal used to be $400 each for a 12" back in 1991 if I remember

Definately newer than 1991. I think you're thinking of the .4 or older. The .5's were 96 to 99ish...


MLess, If you need anything in trade, let me know. :)

I think I am going to keep these for now, sorry, false alarm.

NO LONGER FOR SALE, SORRY!

He is not kidding, he just bought my gti 12. If he chooses to sell, I can tell you he is a good buyer, and really great to work with if that counts for anything.

Please let me know if you change your mind. I think these would be perfect for my application, and they do sound fantastic.

You won't be disappointed in the JBL. If it wasn't so deep it would certainly find its way into my new car.

The depth is why I needed to sell it, was not going to fit comfortably in my Dodge Ram quad cab's center console. I did not feel like building a new box again.
