A whole pile of Lear Jet XL 12's ...lol. I would do the 2 w7's, nothing more impressive than 2 speakers that wail as compared to 3 or 4.

Do the 2 JL13W7s because everybody has heard of them and they sound good. But they are expensive.

The down side to the pioneers is they donít reproduce the sound quality that the W 7's do

I have two 12w6v2's. The only reason I dont have the w7's is lack of space. If you have the cash and the room I say go for the w7's. Dont forget the cost of the amp(s) your going to push these with

I'm not telling ys, I"m tellin ya, you won't have a system with out those old school Lear Jet XL's man! Does anyone remember them? anyone!. The JL's are nice but I (and many others) would probably put the big nasty acoustic hairdryers Eclipse Titanium's in, if you have not considered them, now it's time to.

I agree with Forbidden and PureRF the W7's have a good reputation a lot of hype , they are defiantly one of the top woofers. But if youíre willing to spend that kind of money you should not settle for anything other than the best. And at the top of the food chain lies the Eclipse Titanium. You will not find a woofer that will put out the bass and still sustain the SQ that the Titaniumís do. http://www.eclipse-web.com/products/speaker/index.html

Well it appears that a few people have diffrent opinions.    the amps being run are kicker xs100's    i would like to run only one amp     thus the 12w6v2's     or both to the w7's      But still undecided.   the (3) w6v2's would be about the same price as the (2) w7's    I have played with both and know that the w7 is alot stronger,   but we are talking another 10-11 inches of sub to move air with,   and the w6v2's arnt that big of a step down......By the way if anyone else recomends running pioneer..sony...kenwood...ect   i think they should be drug in the street and beat with their dirty overpriced subs.....does anyone think i should back up and go with MTX 9500's instead.     And eclipse is out i cant get a good enough price
