The Adire Brahma ($380 for the 12) is able to give you close to what the w7 can at a MUCH lower price tag. The Image Dynamics ID Max ($400) and Stereo Integrity Magnum D2 ($250) are also right up with the best.

If you like JL then go with the W3 line up. They are 1/4 the price and sound awesome.

The right configuration will be pleanty loud. They also have different impedance line up's so you can get what ever load you need for what amp you buy.

the W3 line just isn't up to par with the likes of the W7, Brahma, Max and Magnum D2.... not a bad sub by any means, but it really isn't any better than any of the other subs in the $125-150 price range... a good sub, but if you are looking at the W7 line then a W3 would certainly be a letdown.

such as the adire audio shiva, that thing is a monster for 125 shipped to your door!

Elemental design SP... this sub will walk with the w7 and in my opinion has better SPL and SQ. This subwoofer will take as much power as you can throw at it and only get louder. The sub is beautiful and ranks among the highest out there.

jl's SUCK

Audiobahn is makinga quad 2 ohm subwoofer that puts the JL w7 to sleep. The w7 was tested and it only got a 145 with 1200 watts. The new quad 2 ohm is doing 169 on a 1000 watt load. So, I would suggest Audiobahn. Remember it is not all about names, but performance.

The JL's are the best way to go. There pricy, but its WAY worth it!
its is NOT the best way, it is pricy, its not worth it for the price.

I really doubt that a single sub is doing 169 dB on 1 kW...is that with the mic right next to the speaker inside a fish tank? Anyhow I'd like to see the specs, pictures, bench test sheets, etc. on that sub because that is surely remarkable.

As for JL vs. Audiobahn it goes JL hands down but like media said...JL isn't the best performance/price ratio. The w7 is a fine fine sub but you can get something comparable for near half the price.
