Great sounding driver but an OZ ME and IDMax sound just as good if not better (IMO) and have more output on the same power as the W6v2. Either would be my choice (and was) over the W6v2.

yeah well, never heard of em what kinda price ranges are we lookin at here... come to think of it, whats a w6v2 go for these days? 10 or 12"

see, im running a re sx12 right now, with a 500W rms amp... from what i have observed, thats slightly underpowered. a 12w6v2 should be right on with 500w, no? or am i just jumping the gun here?

Ive had the JL 12W6V2 demoed in my car off at 500WRMS amp. ANd i didtn like it at ALL ..........Keep your SE get a better amp for it but Im speakign from my opinion I didtn liekt eh w6V2.........wasn't worth the price

i just read its SX not SE..............still get better amp OR SE cuz the SE is on Par if not better than the w6v2.

from what i know when i almost purchased the sx and the se. is the SX is more SPL oriented and gets pretty loud and soudns fairly decent. the SE is more SQ oriented and more on par with teh JL W6V2's and gets fairly loud aswell...

I said screw both and went with a RE 12 XXX as its the best of BOTH WORLDS lol.

From what I know which is not much....

SPL = a sub which is geared more toward being a louder sub, it will be much louder with the same amount of power as a SQ sub usually. These subs are usually used when people compete in SPL competitions. SPL stands for SOUND PRESSURE LEVEL i think pretty sure

SQ - a sub which is geared to having much cleaner tighter quality bass. These subs will hit lower dB's on a meter usually with same power as you'd feed a SPL sub..SQ stands for sound quality i think...........

but as always your bass always depends on how the box is buiilt whats its tuned for etc........maybe someone here can refer you to some readings.........

then their is the SQL meanign which is the inbetween of the two gettign the best of both worlds in 1 sub.........a sub that gets pretty damn loud while maintaing very good sound quality.........
