Jl audio 10w7 vs. MTX 9500

I have seen an article saying that the mtx outperforms the jl, but has anyone heard them both, or know anything more that could help me make my decision? I have always been a jl fan, but I feel I woudl be cheating myself if I didn't pick the best alternative. I plan on pushing the sub with a Jl 500/1 which I already own.

TIA,

Drew

niether are the best...

there is no BEST.

what do you want to do with it?

SPL or street bass, the MTX will handle more power and still sound OK

The w7 is actually more notable because of its SQ at high volume, so if sound is more important, then the w7 is worth the extra money.

I sell both of them, and i wouldn't buy either.


www.reaudio.com the XXX is a badass sub, that will take alot more power than either, and has better SQ aswell.

the adire brahma is a great sub aswell. www.adireaudio.com

would it run it? yes, would it be optimal? no.

considering the XXX will hold more than 1500wrms, it'll get really loud, but the sensitivity is still over 85db 1w/1m so it'll be loud too, especially if it's in a ported box.

I gotcha. I emailed, adire, and I got a reply stating that the 12 would be a good fit for my amp. I was expecting them to say 10. In your opinion, with Brahmas, is a 12 a good fit? I prefer the sound of a 10, but would 2 10's be too much? Is one 10 enough? What do you think?

TIA,

Drew

your idea of the "sound of a 10" is misled, a good 12 will have the same "response" or "impact" that a good 10" will, which is often what misleads people into believing that a larger sub can't react as well.

the simple fact is that cheap subs can't control cone excursion nearly as well as nice subs because the motor structure is less than half as powerful in alot of cases, so even though the moving mass is more, on a sub like the adire or RE, it will still be much more precise.

the 12" is a great all around sub, if you want, i can get you the XXX.

do you think my 500/1 would do better with a 10 of 12 if I went with the XXX?
