I gots me two JL-W3's 10''s in the trunk. For my purposes of listening to trance, they have a short throw and bump the bass real well.
I used to work at Circuit City - had a great discount and put roughly 6k into my Jeeps audio system... I now have 75% hearing in my left ear.
Don't slow your car down, focus on performance.
But if you absolutely must do it - JL Audio 12w3 in a properly sized sealed enclosure - sounds amazing.

i just bought a JL 12" W7 today it came with the box already (presized for best sound) and i got a problem with fitment im about a 1/2" to tall any ideas.looks like i gotta take the back seat out to get it in the trunk due to angles and **** not allowing it to fit.
any suggestions for removing the back seat to get into the truck i gonna attempt to install this mother on sunday.i gotta get some help the damn sub by itself weighs in at 70 something lbs.
im gonna put 2 10s in the back when it arrives. i just hope they wont take up too much space in the trunk.

i am looking for TIGHT bass, not boomy. I guess this has to do more with the enclosure than the actual speaker. But all factors being equal, will the W7 speaker be better than the W6v2 in this regard? I suppose 2 10inchers would be better than a 12 incher as well.

i think the enclosure makes a difference. i couldnt fit the W7 in the car with the box it came with so i went to JL website and used there specs and built a box myself and just got it wrapped in blue and black suede (hopefully i can get some pix this weekend and post).but anyways right now its kinda "boomy" because i need some set/test tones to adjust my amp output.but besides that im real happy and my box is ported by the way.
anyone know where i can get some set/test tones? JL said set the amp using the 50hz tone, but no one around here (VA) know wtf im talking about.

In my opinion it really depends on how much your wanting to spend, you can get 10's and throw less watts at them and they will sound amazing, where if you want the sound and want to spend the money you can buy 12's, throw more watts at them and they will sound better. At least in my experience 12's are better if you have the AMP to power them correctly, 10's will sound much better on a budget. Don't get 12' subs and a cheap amp or an amp that can't power them, to there full potential, instead you can buy nice 10's and a decent amp and it will sound excellent.

i have a 12 in solo barack pussing 975 watts sounds amazing i made my own box it hts hard and has lots of bass and i can still hear the words comming from the stock spearkers
So I finally pulled the trigger on a new sub. Ended up with a 10" Memphis M3 and the Memphis ported box built for that sub. Couldn't be happier. I was really having doubts when I was staring at this tiny box while the shop was running the wires, but was totally suprised after it was in and pumping.
Getting the 10 over a 12 really closed the frequency gaps between the door speakers and the sub. There's really only a small portion of the higher low end that's being missed by the sub and quietly picked up by the door speakers. I can live with that. Just thought I'd close the loop to the beginning of the thread. Thanks to all for the advice.
