After blowing my w6 and getting jerked around, went with 2 RF p3s.

A few days ago I started a thread about how I blew my W6v2 in 24 hours. I appreciate all who replied. I wasn't able to get my W6 replaced sadly, so my installer was willing to let me try out 2 Fostgate P3s. I was highly impressed with how they sounded. He gave me a great deal because of what the JL dealer put me through. He wasn't able to fit a dual sub box in the trunk, so they put two singles together. Man do they sound good! After 11 years of buying nothing but JL subs, I'm officially a Rockford Fostage fan. I'm gonna ship the blown w6 to JL to see if they will replace it. If so, I''l just sell it or give it to a someone. I'm kinda impatient, so I didn't mind spending a little extra money for the P3s. I did learn a lot from this experience though.

Welcome to the RF club!
Glad you got everything sorted and you're happy. It's pretty ridiculous that the JL dealer wouldn't warranty that speaker.

I just have 1 RF Prime 12" with the Punch P200 amp and even just that does pretty good bass fill.

Those babies probably sound awesome!

looks like you have to glue the carpet down a little in the slot

I bought the boxes from soundscape in Downey ca. Those are actually two singles held together with a bracket. Ask for Johnny. He's a good dude. Straight shooter.

Yea same box. They're called ground shaker boxes. Not sure if that's the company name or the product name.
