JL Audio 15" W-6-?
Hello Guy's, Brand new member here and probably just as confused if not more so than a lot of newbies so help out with opinions here please!
I happen to have a pair of cherry JL Audio 15" W-6's that were part of a system with practically no prior use in a classic car that have been put away for some years. I know when I bought these they were the top of the line JL subs ( PRE W-7 days) that JL offered. As I progress into playing with setting up a HT system on a very limited budget after looking at the pricing on different componants making use of what I already own could go a long way into setting up a better sounding system with limited dollars.
The speakers right now are mounted in a sealed seperated box that meet the specs that JL Adio recommends for these speakers. My questions are many but would I be okay to stay with the sealed box for HT use or be better served to put together a ported box?
The room size will be about 17'x14' and used 80% for HT use. The sealed box size as per JL currently is 1.25' ft, the recommended ported enclosure size 2.25ft with two 3"x21.2" ports.
The specs on the W-6's are, Fs 16.3 Hz, Qts 0.312, Qms 7.817, Vas 10.88ft, Xmas 0.420 in,
Efficiency(1W/1m) 87.9db, Sd 131.0 in, nominal impedance dual 6 ohm, Pt 400 watts.
Will probably from reading what seems like 1000's of post to different forums go with something along the line of a Behringer amp and if needed a smart box and or EQ set up. I guess will these subs be a good choice to use for HT and how best to utilze them for the best performance?
Thanks in advance for all help and opinions!
