Don't know how "new" that idea is... maybe new for you?  In any case, try your local authorized JL Audio dealer.

I don't think either of those subs are the best choice for you if you are looking for all out SPL.

Do you want it to be a daily ride that can play music and go into comps or do you want flat out SPL? We could make some recommendations possibly off that.
And do you know how many cubic feet you have to play with for a box?

Lo,yea force.  i thought you were trying to keep a small enclosure.  w7s require a alarge amout of space. should try like 4 12w3s with a 1000/1 powering them.  enclosure would be half the  space as 2 w7s and could possibly make quite a bit more spl.  at least in the means i believe you are looking for. (daily driver with a lot of spl)

you can do it....

What would be the downside of having 12" JL W7 other than the space thing... and the weight. Those things killed my gas milage like none other.
But dang did those things ever rock. Did a number on my stock charging system though. Thats why I ripped out the 1000-1's and the subs.
But yeah, just wondering what you guys thought about them.

w7s are not a big spl speaker.  they are designed for more sq.  they will push out some spl but you can find better for the purpose you are wanting.   put  4 w3 12s  in with only one 1000/1 and you will be in heaven ..  a lot of spl and still great sq.  but a lot less on the wallet, and your charging system.
