I had my friend install my 2 JLAudio W0's with a Kenwood 350 watt amp in my 1995 GXE and it sounds sweet. I got it for $160 from my brother(including all the wires and all). I havnt been around many 'systems' but for what i got it for its a sweet package. I built my own box; it looks kinda ghetto but it works well with the subs and all. Anyone recently setup a system in their altima? if so what componets do you have in it?

i betcha mine 1 12 is louder than your 2 10's....


see sig
I'm not so sure about that media...no doubt your shiva is loud, but the 2 10s just have you flat out beat in displacement, and the JLs are pretty efficient.

I bet yours sounds better though:)

w0's are nothing to brag about, i have never been impressed by them. good price but i woulda rather spent more money and gotten something a little nicer quality.

i have a used 12w0 under my bed, i used it for 3 or so months, the shiva completely blew it away....

look at spec charts...

the shiva is also more effiecent i could tell just by switching the drivers out...

i have the 12w0 in i just droped the shiva in changed no settings at all and i could tell it was louder by a few dB

I didn't say the w0 is louder or better than a shiva in any way. I said his TWO 10s would be louder than your ONE 12...it's just a fact of life, he's got more cone area = more displacement. That's all I was saying...I know that a shiva could own a w0 in a side-by-side.

the pair of 10's have slightly more cone area, but the Shiva has a HUGE advantage in swept linear displacement.... not that it has to be linear to be loud... LOL

personally i think it should be very close in SPL, SQ is subjective, but i like the shiva more.

I had the Nuke 12 and IMO it really had nothing on the shiva SQ wise, it was very close..... From all accounts that i have heard the Nuke is better sounding than the Hydro, but i havn't personally heard the hydro.

For its time the Nuke and Hydro were beasts!!! sounded respectable (not quite up with the current SQ subs), and could take a boatload of power!!!
