i am very very very happy with my RE... i think it is very comparable to a w6 and can be picked up for ~$200
IMO, RE is much better for the dollar
with that said, you honestly can not go wrong with a w7 end of storry. im not saying RE is the same or better as a w7 by any means just a value thing for me... lol, they are just really expensive and have a very large mounting depth (bad for us truck guys). a 500/1 will push it and is what most people get but i like them with a little bit more power... maybe 600-700 RMS so you have room for clipping?
trust me dude, if you had 2 w6's or even IMO 2 w3v3s in your truck you wouldnt be disapointed... assuming you just want to play for yourself and not for all the ppl within a 1 mile radius of your car...
