worth it or not? seems pricey.
If you want something that performs similarly to the W7, look into the Brahma, IDmax, and the top subs from Elemental Designs and Resonant Engineering, they are all pretty similar.
I am looking into the elemental designs a series 15 myself. They are only $315 plus shipping, and can handle a lot of power and have a HUGE Xmax - 29.1 mm.
yes the A's series is very very nice. gotta love no tinsel lead slap.
Xmax doesn't determine how loud the sub will get.
I know, but it can still move a lot of air. The only stat I didn't see on the website was the sensetivity of the subs.
It does in a sealed box, provided your power available is VERY high.
yes, it is a determing factor.
I've heard a lot of good things about the Elemental Designs subs. IMO the W7 is overpriced. Wicked sub, but overpriced.
I couldn't be happier with my Elemental Designs sub, awesome performance, awesome price, can't beat that. And eD has come a long way. They will be releasing mid-bass speakers soon that are supposed to be killer!
Just get 2 or 3 10" W6's and yoou'll be all good
GlocksRock, I see you viewing this thread. Pls. check your PMs.
W7 are awsome but very pricey if you can afford them get them
i'd take this over a W7...
"This quote is taken word-for-word from JL Audio's web site. We agree, and in all measurable areas, MTX Audio's new Thunder9500 Subwoofer smokes JL's W7!"
You're not serious, are you?
i get mtx at cost, and my favorite woofer right now is coustic's cf series.
Ah, that changes things a bit then.
However, I have seen zero third party (DLC's DUMAX for instance) to verify ANY of MTX's claims of superiority over JL. IIRC, the W7 has seen DUMAX numbers as high as 28mm...a full 6 inches more than factory spec.
we used to whore JL Audio, and i have to say i'm really not fond of their products.
