I was laughing and kidding around with my buds saying I was going to get one. "Dana would never let you get a new sub."....is, of course, the reply....

I kid and say, "The funny thing is that my sub is scheduled to blow tomorrow...lol" Yeah, it was funny....

I get home and tell the wife about his W7. "No. You can't have a new sub."

I told her I wasn't planning on getting one. But, of course I have to joke with her..."Amazing."

She asks, "what?"

"I had no idea my sub was going to blow tomorrow."

She thinks it's funny, but knows....no sub for me.



And you'll never guess what happened today. I get this pulsing like power on and off (smoothly) and suddenly, the 10" isn't working.

You gotta be f'ing kidding me.

I'm sure it's either a bad connection or maybe the digital processor. I've blown plenty of subs to know they still play after being blown.

But, you should have seen the wife when I told her. L M A O


"BULL SHIT!!!!!!"

Hilarious....

Oh, man....

I can't believe this crap is happening. So, I get to take it in and have Custom Sounds look at it asap.
Don't make me post up the pictures of you in the garage with the screwdriver punching holes in the face of the sub.....

Lmao....no screwdriver and no...shes no dummy!

Hrm. I wonder....

1 w7 puts out just as much as 1 w3 10" and w3 12".. I wonder if I could sell the 12 in the custom box and the 10 to put towards one w7...

Well, I got the time to pin point the problem with the speaker today.

Turns out the speaker has a faulty wire (tine wire) something like that on the inside of the coil that connects to the cone. It can be fixed, but not to worry, the extended warranty has COVERED MY ASS!

So, they are sending off my old speaker and have ordered me a new one.





Now....



to make the decision.....



Put the JL 10" W3V2 and JL 12" W3V2 up for sale with the custom made boxes and save up for a JL10" W7 with new ported box?

Or, stick with what I have.




I think I want to see what I can get for what I got...

I want that single W7 with ported box....

Your current setup sounds great.

JL10 W3 = 14 lbs + the box
JL12 W3 = 16 lbs + the box
===========
30 + 12 (ish per box) roughly 55 lbs


JL W7 = 30 lbs + box (12ish lbs)


Maybe I'll save a few lbs in the back by going W7?

Either way, it'll be a hell of a set up.
