    Hey guys, I just picked up my first escort. Its a 98 zx2 with 44K origonal miles. Well, I am going to be transfering my system from my other car to this one. Now some people might say that my system is a little overkill but I love it! For the doors, I have the JL ZR 6.5 components. Rear are JL vr coaxial. Head Unit is a kenwood excelon X492. 4 channel amp is a JL e4300. Subwoofer amp is a JL 500/1 v2. Now my question is on what kind of subwoofer. Im looking for sound quality not boomy bass, BUT I would still like it to play loud and clean once in a while. I dont want to get crazy with a big sub box in the trunk, so sealed box is the only way to go. I have been looking at the JL 10w7 in their prowedge box. Does anyone have any experience using it? How do you like it? I want to stay JL but if you have any other recommendations besides the 10w7, please feel free to share them with me. Thanks, Mike

    JL makes nice stuff don't get me wrong here. but for what you are asking they are over priced. besides that the infinity is perfectly matched wattage wise with that 500/1. a w7 wants more.

    It doesnt even have to be a w7. I have owned a 13w6 and a 12w3v3 before. I liked both but the box for the w6 was too big and the w3 just didnt seem to get that loud when I wanted it to. I have no experience with the w7 drivers, so thats why I was asking about the 10w7. I looked online and according to their chart, the 500/1 would match perfectly. As far as the infinity goes, I would have to hear it in person. The ones I have heard before I did not like but that was a long time ago. Thanks for the insight.
