I'd go with the 13w7. Wouldn't have to work as hard to get as loud as the 12w7, therefore the output should be cleaner.

Go with the 13.5 for a couple of reasons.

sd of 13.5=107sqin vs 12 = 84sq in
13.5 has dv1.5 ohm vs 12 single 3 ohm.
The 13.5 will take quite a bit more power then the 12.

Find a Jbl bpx 2200.1

Or find a second hand re xxx or ascendant audio avalanche 15. I had 2 avalanche 15s and they sounded GReat in sealed boxes
