    id go with the diamond, more sensitive and can also handle more watts.

    diamond. it's hard to beat that sub for 100 bux. DVC, big ass magnet, small airpsace requirements. oh and it'll handle gobs of (CLEAN) power

    sure, buy an overpriced SVC sub that won't handle near the power as the diamond. JL makes good subs, but why did you ask our opinion on those 2 subs just to bring that one in? doesn't make any sense to me, but then again, i guess if i didn't know too much about car audio, i guess i'd buy into "OOOOOOO JL"

    i don't mean to be a dick (ok, maybe a little). just my opinion after working with both subs, i think the diamond will give you so much more bang for your buck for a $100 sub. I'm not a super huge fan of Diamond or JL, but i know the value between the two that the Diamond will come out on top. For a bill, it's a clean pretty accurate sub that will handle gobs of power. It also has a butyl rubber surround that is much more durable than the JLs foam surround. plus the fact that the CM3 (or D3, whichever sub you're looking at, they're the same, just different model name/year) is available in a dual 2 or 4 ohm setup, allowing you to maximize your amp's capabilities

    whoa baller, you might just want to go 2 ohms on that. 1500 might be a lil stout for the D3s. OH and just so you are aware....that transmission line box is a BITCH to build. We used to charge almost $600 to have one built. but it is quite loud!!!
