Awesome. The last sub I built (home sub that is) was in the late 90's. I've made car subs (using JL Audio drivers) - easy to finish as they are carpeted . I haven't attempted to make a home sub recently as I've always found deals with pre-made ones.

Happy Listening!!! Listen with an open mind and heart!!!

Cool,my sub history also go,s back 20 years to the carsub,s from JL.
Butt one day at a homeaudioshow i heard a Velodyne DD18,i thougt my carsub can do that just as well.

So now i have 2 closed 13W3,s in the living, learned how to work whit REW,
DIY pay,s of if you do it right,thanks to JL ofcourse for building BIG sub,s that play very good in small boxes.

I agree with the JL drivers, they work nice in small enclosures. One of our cars now us using the JL 12W3's. In a trunk of an 09 Accord. The rest of the speakers are Infinity Kappas, love their sound.

The real question in my head is are jl subs worth it for the money or can you get better performance from some of the other home audio geared subs. There is a fine line with jl being a name and how they perform. Don't get me wrong I think just about every jl product is dynamite but it also comes at a price.

I think it depends. I got a great deal on my JL drivers for the car. But I agree with Home products. Yes, DIY can get you more for your money, but if you can score a great deal on home subs, then it may be a moot point. All the subs in our house I got on clearance sales, so I don't think I could have built it for the same price and look good at the same time.

I'm not so much talking about store bought subs already finished but drivers that are geared more for home audio. Some car audio subs work out well in doors some dont. But bang for the buck. Would you say a jl 13" w3 is a more capable driver than a new 15" ultimax or the new si 15 ?

Mind you the jl is roughly 50 bucks more than both of those drivers.

Got it! Drivers made for cars are made for compresing much smaller areas. I've never really used a car driver for a home sub, so can't really say. When I've made home subs in the past, I chose drivers made for larger boxes. Maybe someone with the knowledge or experience with this can chime in. As for myself, I've always used drivers designed for cars in cars and those for in-home for home...
