    If you want something that performs similarly to the W7, look into the Brahma, IDmax, and the top subs from Elemental Designs and Resonant Engineering, they are all pretty similar.

    Xmax doesn't determine how loud the sub will get. ;)

    I know, but it can still move a lot of air. The only stat I didn't see on the website was the sensetivity of the subs.

    It does in a sealed box, provided your power available is VERY high.

    I've heard a lot of good things about the Elemental Designs subs. IMO the W7 is overpriced. Wicked sub, but overpriced.

    I couldn't be happier with my Elemental Designs sub, awesome performance, awesome price, can't beat that. And eD has come a long way. They will be releasing mid-bass speakers soon that are supposed to be killer!

    Ah, that changes things a bit then.

    However, I have seen zero third party (DLC's DUMAX for instance) to verify ANY of MTX's claims of superiority over JL. IIRC, the W7 has seen DUMAX numbers as high as 28mm...a full 6 inches more than factory spec.
