Two 12" IDQ's vs Two 12" JLW6's

What are your thoughts people? SQL-wise

-Ported box, 3 cubes, 25 hz
-Powered by Arc Audio KAR 900.1 at 2 ohms = 750 wrms with subsonic filter crossed at around 80 hz with 12 db slope
-Hatchback

Thanks in advance

p.s. I believe each IDQ is around 400 wrms, and each JLW6 is around 500 wrms.

If it's the W6V2, that would be my vote. Really one of the better sounding drivers out there.

Oh yeah...totally agreed, no question. As much as I love the IDQ's v.2's, the W6v.2 are much more advanced. Not a fair comparison really.

If you meant the IDQ v.3's, I have no idea...never used them.

If you are looking solely for ouput then the JL will win, but for SQ properties, tonality, and compliance the IDQ will definetly take the JL. Also 2 IDQ 12's would not like 3 cubes sealed, and 3 cubes ported is a little on the large side. The JL's on the otherhand will like 3 cubes.

My 2 cents

Are you talking about the IDQ v.2 or v.3?

While I agree 3 cubes sealed may be a bit large for the IDQ v.2's, 3 cubes ported @ 19-29Hz would work very well.

I'm a bit surprised about your thoughts on the W6v.2's...you make it almost sound like a driver designed for SPL. IMO, they are more geared towards SQ than SPL output.
