 Help with choosing a Sub: Need expert opinion

I have decided on a 10" JL audio sub. Question is which one or does it make any difference? I am looking at the 10w3 and the 10w3v2 (new designed dust cap and can handle 50 more watts "300 rms". I am going to get the JL audio Pro Wedge which is a sealed enclosure which is what I want. The amp I am running is an Alpine MRV-F450, which puts about 200 watts RMS at 14.4volts to the sub. The 10w3 is rated at 250 RMS the V2 version 300 rms. Does any one have experience with this application?? Am I better off with the W3 instead of the W3V2 because it's closer to the Power rating of the sub output on my amp? Thanks...Xavier

Actually JL underrates the hell out of thier subs. A general rule of thumb I have discovered is to take the rms power and add 50 percent of it. so The w3v2 is more like 450. I would get the new w3v2. It has a lot of voicecoil combos. Dual 2 ohm, dual 4 ohm, and dual 6 ohm. Plus they look sweet and are extremely loud. I would get the w3v2. I also would suggest building your own box.
