It depends on what subs you have. Two 10's you can go with the 500/1. Want more power then goto the 1000/1.

As for driving the speakers you can either go with the 300/4 or 450/4.

All JL audio amps look the same and are amazing units (see pic below). I have the 500/1 and the 300/4 driving all of my main speakers. This is more than enough power for me.

a JL 12 W7 and a 500/1 amp is a perfect match... sounds awesome, and you're not overpowering the sub.... I had this combo in my old car before i sold it, and even under-boxed and under-powered the thing sounded CLEAN and hit harder than my older 2 12W3s i had before it...

the 12 w7 is nice but it doesn't have a logo on the front. I want to be able to show off my setup. 12 w7 doesn't have much show appeal as the w3 or w6AE



w6AE

Trust me...anyone that knows anything about car audio will stop and look at any 12w7 setup. You just have to be creative with your box design and amp set-up. The 12w will speak for itself! Good luck and let us know how thins turn out!
