    Well considering I would never pay for something as overpriced as JL, it doesn't really matter. Tons of subs out there that are worth the price.

    JL was an example sir.

    I would however put a w1 or w0 against most anything else in its price range.

    Exactly, nothing the least bit wrong with extreme at accommodation pricing. Retail on the other hand...not so much :squint:

    Ascendant Audio Assasin. The new motors are getting a bigger stack as well. They are kick ass little drivers.

    In all honesty, the w1v2 isnt a bad woofer at all but I can log onto PE and pick 5 comparable drivers in less than 5 min that are the same price or lower. :)

    At that price it is a comparable woofer. For the average person looking for a factory backed warranty you are going to pay for the name, not the performance.

    Car audio is a waste of time in general.
