    So I plan on building a sealed JL 13w7 with EQ to hit 20hz flat, to power that little beast I was wondering if I should get an Behringer EP2500 or a Crown XLS 2502. Personally I'd like to go with the Crown, better efficiency + no need of mods for silence, but I wonder if it can handle the task...
  2. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello I just needed recommendations for an amplifier. I was getting ready to sell it, but decided I might end up keeping it for home theater use. I have it in a ported box tuned to JL specs. The whole 3 ohm thing is making it difficult to find an amp, all of the ones I have seen only go down to...

    As the title says, I'm in doubt between those 2. They seem to perform really close to each other, ported enclosure (200L) and sealed(linkwitz transform, 100L). Thing is, JL would be a little less expensive, as I would buy them used. JL would be 86-90% of the price of the UM18-22 What would you...

    I am currently being offered a JL 13W7 that has been refoamed. How much impact does it have in the speaker performance and parameters? I really wish to buy it, as it's being sold for 6/10th of the price. But will it be worth? Thanks guys

    was thinking about buying another JL sub. I have the E112 and love it. I wanted to get the E110 for my bonus room. I have a 12" Atlantic Tech 642e up there now which is nice.

    just bought this sub and and wanted to know if anybody else had one. II bought the glossy one and I wanted to know what you should use to clean it. I am assuming a microfiber cloth. love this thing. It just slams and it is tight as can be. They make very easy for you to dial it in.

    I couldn't pass this up. I now have two of the above subs that I would like to use for HT. I'm thinking about a 7.7 cu ft box with triple 4" ports that can be closed off to change the tuning frequency. Possibly 20 and 17 or 15 and 18. Will be powered with 100w each. What does everyone think?

    JL Audio E112 By Jim Wilson (theJman) There are some very talented people working at JL Audio. I've often wondered why their subwoofers were expensive, and after hearing one of them myself I now understand how they can command a premium price. This is bass for the discriminating...
