I have a JL 12 W6 in a spec box at 1 cubic foot. I have option to throw it in a 1.5 cubic foot box too. Is it worth it to use the larger box? Both are sealed going in a trunk. Amp is larger than needed (900 watts).
JL Specs their boxes small for what are affectionately known as Hi-Q boxes but 1 cuft for the 12W6v3 is not as bad as most of their prefab boxes.Not all 900 watts are going to it. Gains about 35% or less.
As suggested to me by others here when i was in the same boat, try ported. I wasn't happy with my W6 till i went ported.To be honest my w6 doesn’t get loud enough for me. I think the accord trunk blocks a lot of bass in the vehicle, plus road noise. Daily driver going 60-80 daily. I can’t hear the lowest notes well. Little eq on the DSP there between 40 and 63.
Is 300 watts x2 good for 2 12w6v3s? Running a xSeries amp. [email protected] or [email protected] One at about 600 is weak and I’m not sure how to get what I want. I don’t want to throw money unnecessarily at this.
Interesting. Now I’ve gotta buy a ported box because my 12w6v3 is way too quiet in a 1.1sqf^3 box. I always wanted to hear what two would sound like, but ended up with two w7’s instead so I’ve had little motivation to get another w6.As suggested to me by others here when i was in the same boat, try ported.
