Why the switch? And are you going with the dual 4 or single 4 9515s?

If anything that was a sideways-grade at best, I woulda kept the w7's...

If I was going to get 9515's I woulda got the real deal....

mtx's 9515's are that great either. they definitely can't handle the power they're advertised to.

my buddy has one temp(free) installed to fill his box space. he's an installer at a big shop here and he's gotta have something to show. it's a 9515 with a memphis m-class 4000d running 2000w rms and we can smell the coil strong.

look into more unknown brands man to get what you're looking for. mtx ain't gonna cut it. like b.campbell said, the only 9515 i'd touch would be a digital designs.

its ALL about the box, and the installation.


dont blame the subwoofers because your installers dont know what they are doing with those subs.


like brandon said, that was a sideways move... at BEST. (if not a downgrade) the W7 is a great woofer, if installed properly, into a box built to the woofers specs (not the box JL tells you to build).

Hey, pimpala...

what's wrong with the box JL tells you to build and what would be the best for a JL12W6 to go into if not what JL says?

manufacturer specs for subwoofer boxes are always very conservative, and are designed with the ease of build, and keeping the subwoofer "safe".

if you want a real box, then go to a place with a history of building loud SPL vehicles that has a computer box building program, and let them design an enclosure designed specifically for your vehicle.


every car, and every install is different.

I cant wait!



and do this... when its finished, go have it metered at a local shop, and if it doesnt do more than my W7s do at 40hz, (146.6db) then come back and apologize for calling my subs "over rated POS"


oh, and mine are only 8"
