    JL Audio makes some awesome subs. They make different models to fit different applications. I am just suggesting that you select your subwoofer based on YOUR needs. Kinda like picking out clothing, you want them to fit YOUR body and not some ideal, regardless of how nice that size 4 "little black dress" looks on the model, I think that it would look pretty silly on my middle-aged male body.

    For your application, with 140 watts, I would suggest a JL Audio 10W3v2 or 10W6 over a 10W7 any day. And there are some cheaper alternatives out there as well that would be very well suited to your needs. The ed10 o and k series are excellent examples.

    earlier i suggested a 10w7, not remembering that you only had 140 watts to power it. However, jl is most definitely one of the best car audio manufacturers out there. So i would highly suggest getting an older jl model subwoofer to fit your needs, since they require much less power. You could either go with a 10w0 or a 10w3v2 and have a perfect amount of power to run them. Using a 10w6ae or a 10w6v2 would be out of the question. Even though you would have the right amount of power to run them, it wouldnt be giving it enough to get its full potential. So in my opinion i would go with a 10w0 or a 10w3v2. And all i can tell you is that in my opinion, jl is the best brand for any job.

    JL is pretty good, but I'll leave you to your opinion.

    I just installed one 10' Infinity Referrence sub yesterday. Total cost $130 from Circuit City. I am probably running about 150 on this thing. It's plenty loud. I still have the stock deck with a 4 channel 400 watt MTX amp running all the speakers. I placed all 4 interior speakers as my fronts and the sub is running as the rear. It's clear enough and the sub is actually still overwhelming. It will need to be tweaked a little. Check this one out. Sub was $99 and the box was about $35.

    I think with 140 watts, the basslink is a good choice. I have a jl 10w6v2 and it's a great sub, but 140 watts wouldn't do it any justice. As far as the lesser jl subs (w0, w3) I can't recommend them to anyone. They're loud, but that's about it. There's really nothing in the way of musicality from those subs and I think there are better choices for that segment. The w7 is... well.... it. Doesn't get much better than that for your money... but they're power hungry and expensive.

    Just to be clear, the Basslink is a powered sub....you don't need another external amp, it has one built in. I'm actually going to be throwing a 10W6V2 in my wagon sometime soon, I'm planning on throwing 300W to it...Its on the lower end of its range, but I think it'll do the trick.
    4 tires...a motor...a couple doors I think...I'd have to check.

    I got so much crap laying around my room.... through all of it that i got i would definitely go pick a W3V2. Audiobahn amps are pretty good... but the subs blow (No offense to any owners of the subs.) Im puttin my old 12W3V2 in my moms car with just an old 300 Watt Mtx Amp. They bump pretty good and are very clear at that.

    Yeah, audiobahn subs suck...they get loud, but sound like ****. They do make very good amps, a bit pricey though.
