Picking the right amp for 12W3v3-2
I went to a JL dealer this weekend, with the intention of just upgrading my 10 inch P1 sub, but ended up getting a JL 12W3v3-2. The shop recommended putting in in a JL CP112 slot ported bass wedge, even though JL does not offer that enclosure with a W3, only a Wov2. The shop had experimented with this setup and was pleased with the results, so I let them put the12W3v3-2 in the CP112 slot ported bass wedge, and it really sounded great in my car, so I purchased that setup.
I currently have the JL JX250/1 amp, it sounds good with this sub, but I would like to get a little stronger amp for this new w3, as I am thinking the jx250, is a little less than ideal for this sub. I was considering getting the JX500/1 , but don't know if thats too much for the w3 or not. What other quality amps should I consider for my new sub? This is a 2 ohm sub. Jl rates it at 500w now, but I hear it used to be rated at 300watts. Not sure what the Ideal amp would really be, but according to JL's chart, it looks like 350w is ideal. I don't plan on pushing the sub to its limits very often, just want it to perform the best that it can.
Has anyone seen a 12w3v3-2 mounted in a JL Cp112 slot ported bass wedge before, and what are your opinions of that setup. I do like that it does not take up a lot of space, but don't know if its and ideal setup.
Any opinions on Cadence amps for this sub?
