    I haven't heard the anything but the 12w7, which I own from those three.
    I won't vote, but I'll say I'm extremely happy with what I got.

    13W7 + 1000/1

    basically these two are made for each other.

    i cant say ive heard of any single woofer with more output. But you can get something CLOSE for less...IE idmax.

    Countless 15" subwoofers, and all the 18" subwoofers I've dealt with have easily surpassed it in terms of output.

    RE Audio XXX15/18, MT15, 2006 RE XXX12/15
    StereoIntegrity Magnum 15
    Fi Car Audio BTL15, Q15
    Adire Audio Brahma Extreme 15
    SoundSplinter RL-S 12/15, with ruler flat SQ as well.
    Incriminator Audio Death Penalty 15

    Plus, plenty of main stream shit that is capable of it.

    The 2006 XXX12 will outdisplace a 13W7, and be just as linear as well.

    you listed nothing but 15/18" woofers, and one 12", none with any numbers to back it up:o

    Well yeah, wouldn't be very fair comparing a 13W7 (13.5"...JL's equivalent of a 15 in that line)... to a bunch of 12's.

    Two 12's.

    What do you want SPL charts for each and every woofer. Tons of woofers have more output than the 13W7... especially given different applications.

    fair enough... If you can, prove these subs have more output than a 12w7.
